Singing and Wellbeing provides evidence that the benefits of a melodious voice go far beyond pleasure, and confirms the importance of singing in optimum health. A largely untapped resource in the health care professions, the singing voice offers rewards that are closer than ever to being fully quantified by advances in neuroscience and psychology. For music, pre-med, bioethics, and medical humanities students, this book introduces the types of ongoing research that connect behaviour and brain function with the musical voice.

About the Author:

Kay Norton is Associate Professor of Musicology at Arizona State University.

Review:

"A brilliantly thorough thesis on the topic of singing’s existential essence and its elemental presence in well-being. Kay Norton’s compelling research shows a deeply engaged scholar ably traversing cross-cultural and cross-disciplinary perspectives in search of answers to the question of how and why singing affects us so profoundly."

―Sarah Schmalenberger, Associate Professor of Music, University of St. Thomas

"Kay Norton’s stimulating book draws on both scientific and humanistic disciplines to explain why humans sing and the effects this has on their nature, culture, and wellbeing. With its emphasis on the promotion of health through song it is set to become essential reading for anyone interested in this topic."

―Penelope Gouk, Honorary Research Fellow, University of Manchester

"From the womb to the deathbed, the voice offers a sense of self and of one’s place within community. Keeping the singing voice at the center, Singing and Wellbeing: Ancient Wisdom, Modern Proof is diagnostic, prescriptive, historically grounded, philosophically attuned, and beautifully pitched."

―Nina Eidsheim, Assistant Professor of Musicology, University of California, Los Angeles

"Synthesizing research findings from neuroscience, historical musicology, ethnomusicology, music therapy, anthropology, aesthetics, theology, and other fields, Norton skilfully weaves a rich tapestry that provides compelling evidence for the pervasive role of singing in human societies.... Norton’s multi-faceted discussion of singing joyfully illuminates and reflects the multiple roles that the melodious-inflected voice occupies in the human experience."

―William A. Everett, Curators' Distinguished Professor of Musicology, Univeristy of Missouri-Kansas City, IRASM vol.47 no.1
