Singing Hearts | Mindful Music Program
With the demands of daily life, it's common for mothers to feel like they're missing out on the special moments of motherhood. Between work, household responsibilities, and other commitments, it can be challenging to find time to slow down and enjoy time with our children.
The Singing Hearts program offers a way to take a break and connect with your child in a meaningful way through the power of music. By participating in Singing Hearts, mothers can rediscover the joy of motherhood and create lasting memories with their children while enjoying the multiple benefits of singing and music.
Suggested age group: 0 - 5 years
We know from research, that singing in harmony is a wonderful way to improve your mental health & wellbeing, increase your self-esteem, your confidence and help you bond with others.
It has also been clinically proven that group singing can reduce symptoms of postnatal depression faster than the usual forms of treatment (British Journal of Psychiatry 2018).
We also know that music ignites all areas of child development and skills for school readiness, including intellectual, social-emotional, motor, language, and overall literacy. It helps the body and the mind work together. Exposing the children to music during early development helps them learn the sounds and meanings of words.
More specifically, group singing can help you
be aware and connected with self, each other and your child
improve muscle tension & overall wellbeing through better breathing and posture
release stress by reducing the stress hormone levels
improve a sense of belonging and social wellbeing
stimulate your brain by learning new songs
It can also help your child(ren):
improve their moods (brain changes when expose to music)
feel empowered by reducing stress levels
get in touch with their emotions
improve their vocabulary and language skills
Singing Hearts uses breathing and mindfulness techniques to help you find calm and centre yourself to the present moment.
The songs selected for this group are powerful and uplifting and will help you connect to your heart and to the feeling of togetherness. The words, melodies and harmonies held in these songs will support and follow you through your day. Through repetition your child(ren) will be able to follow and recognise the sounds.
So wether you are looking to include mindfulness into your weekly routine or would like to meet some new mums whilst doing something good for you and your child(ren), come sing with us.
