Sing to Beat Parkinson’s are hosting their annual training residency at Snape Maltings, Suffolk on 27-28 January 2020. The course offers a unique and specialist opportunity for musicians and emerging artists to gain invaluable experience and a toolkit to run a Singing Group for people with Parkinson’s and their carers, friends and families.

Sing to Beat Parkinson’s (STBP) is a network of singing groups for people with Parkinson’s and other neurological conditions established by Canterbury Cantata Trust. STBP has a growing number of groups across the UK and the model has been adopted internationally. STBP has developed a training programme in association with Snape Maltings at Aldeburgh, and Morley College in London.

The 2020 training course will be led by Grenville Hancox (Honorary Professor in Music, Health and Well Being, University of Kent; Artistic Director and Founder, Sing to Beat Parkinson’s) and Nicola Wydenbach (Director of Training at Sing to Beat Parkinson’s). Additional specialist input will be provided by Dr Trish Vella-Burrows.

The cost of the residency is £150 which includes lunch on both days.
