The Benefits Of Singing


Music is the universal language.  When you take the time to learn how to sing, there are numerous benefits, whether physically, mentally or spiritually.

It’s Good For The Body

The biggest benefit that singing gives us is that exercises our lungs. You use your lungs in a different way,  deeply and openly. More oxygen gets into our blood, which promotes for better circulation. Your abdominal and diaphragm muscles get a workout. Singing release endorphins, which makes you feel uplifted and energized.

Feelings Of “I Can Do This”

When you are singing in front of people, it takes you out of your comfort zone and builds confidence. I don’t care how long you’ve been performing, everyone, if they care about the performance, gets super scared before they go on stage. The feeling you get after a performance is like no other.  And when you concentrate on having a great vocal performance, you forget about all your worries in the world. And you are just in the moment.

I Like Singing With A Group

One of the best concerts I’ve ever been to was when I saw Dashboard Confessional at the Allstate Arena. EVERYONE was singing along and it was awesome! Singing brings people together. When you sing with other people, you become part of something bigger than yourself. How many times have we been in a car and it erupted in a big sing-along? I remember driving from Milwaukee Summerfest with three friends and we were singing along to System Of A Down’s  (selftitled) album!  And it was one of the greatest car rides ever !

When you sing, you are doing a lot of good for yourself. So sing everytime you can, GODDAMN!
