singing is healthy

here’s an article from last july’s los angeles times about more research into music’s special effects. it seems music, and singing in particular, can have specific health benefits.

“The new research… is the latest to explore the health benefits of making music.”

i’m not a doctor, but i know what students have told me for decades: “you’ve done it again.”  done what?  “i came dragging in here, and i’m leaving feeling great.”

mission accomplished.
