About the event

Free singing sessions for people with respiratory conditions

Come along to a new singing group, based at The Whittington Hospital, for people suffering from long term respiratory disorders such as COPD, Asthma, Emphysema & Chronic Bronchitis or fibrosis.

Anyone can come along – not only is it fun, it’s good for you, too!

Research shows singing can help people with respiratory disorders in a number of ways including exercising the major muscle groups in the upper body, improving the efficiency of cardiovascular system and improving oxygen intake leading to increased alertness.

Through singing, vocal exercise and postural work, those attending the group may see an improvement in their symptoms.

It is also a great chance to meet people.

The Workshop will be led by experienced music therapists and singing facilitators who have delivered similar programmes at the Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospitals.

Free to those with a lung condition
