Finding Your Singing Voice


6:00 pm

Finding your singing voice

MMW Director A/Prof Sarah Wilson will shed light on what happens in the brain when we sing.  Singing and speaking are our two main forms of communicating with sound yet we still know very little about how they are related in the brain. This presentationreviews what we do know about the brain when we sing, speak, or sing with words. The findings are important for understanding how the brain changes with singing training, and how we can use singing to retrain the brain to speak after injury.

This talk forms part ofMelbourne Recital Centre's "Music and The Mind" series, which explores the relationship between music and the human brain and the relatedlinks to social wellbeing, participation, learning and development and the role of music in our contemporary communities.
