Event description

Description

Singing for Lung Health is a sociable group activity where techniques for breathing control and posture are taught through singing. It is proving transformative for participants and the intervention has grown widely in the past decade with eight hospitals in London running groups and over 100 community-based groups around the UK.

To coincide with the Royal College of Physicians Museum ‘Catch your breath’ exhibition exploring breathing and breathlessness, this workshop led by Phoene Cave will provide an overview of the history of Singing for Breathing workshops over the last 10 years, as well as a taster session of the techniques used.

Phoene Cave is a Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC)-registered music therapist, singer and vocal coach who delivered the first Singing for Breathing workshops in 2008 at the Royal Brompton Hospital, London. She has delivered training and resources for the Singing for Lung Health programme with the British Lung Foundation since 2014.

Phoene has spent the past two decades working with diverse communities to facilitate singing projects and areas of performance, education and music therapy. She has worked as a consultant, lecturer and trainer for organisations including Southbank Centre, Nordoff Robbins, Wigmore Hall and Live Music Now. Phoene is passionate about the creative connections between music and wellbeing, and about supporting best practice in music facilitators and therapists.
