Starting in April 2016, Finding a Voice is a 33-month AHRC-funded project focusing on people who don’t sing, engaging them in specially designed programmes. It will provide an understanding of the journeys adult non-singers take in learning to sing, and the ways in which they can be supported, by combining psychological, educational and artistic research. The project will investigate the best ways of helping non-singers engage in meaningful participation in singing and improve their skills, and to show what their developmental journeys look like.
