Cantabrainers Choir is a therapeutic choir for people with neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, stroke, multiple sclerosis and brain injury.

Cantabrainers Choir differs from other choirs as:

• the singing is about learning to use the voice effectively again, in a fun way. It is not about performance.

• it is run by a registered Music Therapist and a registered Speech Language Therapist.

• it is run in an environment where people with similar issues feel comfortable and less likely to be judged.

• it suits a wide range of abilities. You don’t have to be a ‘singer’.

• it works on group and individual goals.

• songs are chosen, developed and adapted to suit the needs of participants.

• it uses the principles of Neural plasticity

“Singing is an enjoyable way of practicing repetitive voice exercises.”

Testimonials:

Andrew: “I can get my breathing better from singing and I can go louder and longer.”

Lois: “Choir helps me get my head around remembering things and learning things again.”

Sheila: “I enjoy it, I’m just very, very happy. I can’t wait for the next week.”

Nev: “Finding words can be a struggle for me, the Choir is helping them to flow better.”

Cantabrainers Choir is funded by donations and grants.

We want to raise $5,000 to help enable the choir to continue in perpetuity.

We invite you to make a difference to a number of people’s lives by donating to Cantabrainers Choir.
