Singing and Health: A systematic mapping and review of non-clinical research

The Sidney De Haan Research Centre for Arts and Health undertook a systematic mapping and review of non-clinical research on singing, wellbeing and health.

A total of 35 papers were included in the review, with studies grouped as: qualitative studies; studies using specifically designed questionnaires, quantitative studies using previously validated scales; studies making objective measures of physiological changes associated with singing (such as hormonal changes); studies employing well-established measures of 'mental and physical health'; research assessing the physical performance of singers, and finally, a series of large-scale epidemiological studies in which choral singing was included as a potential determinant of health.
