The focus then shifts to therapeutically oriented research investigating the value of singing for people with specific health or social care needs. The chapter concludes with a brief outline of the work of the Sidney De Haan Research Centre for Arts and Health, and its efforts to develop an integrated and progressive programme of research on singing, wellbeing, and health.
