Emotional benefits of singing!! Singing can open the hardest of hearts, and release firmly locked-in passions and feelings. I see many students can't or won't sing because, their heart is blocked...so to speak. In other words emotions and feelings are being repressed or locked in, for some reason. We can all develop these protections from time to time. We fear emotional threat or risk, and so we block or insulate our vulnerability. When this becomes embedded and habitual, we may become hard and cold in nature. We toughen up, but in doing so, we disconnect from some vital feelings and emotions. Our heart is blocked. Learning to sing releases emotional blockages - sometimes blockages that we've had for years. Singing can make you cry. Singing can ignite your passions. And singing can make you laugh. Just do it wither way.
