We're interested in how new knowledge can help strengthen the argument for group singing as something that everyone should have access to. Obviously, as singers, we have a fairly biased view about singing being good for you, but we're committed to testing our assumptions, as well as finding evidence to back them up.

Research Interests

Between us, we have a range of research interests, including interpersonal 'resonance' and group singing - developing an understanding of how interpersonal neurobiological mechanisms synchronise when we sing together, and how this contributes to wellbeing. Check out Dave's website for more info
