What can be more joyful than having a good, old sing with your friends? Karaoke is successful for a reason! Singing clears out your lungs, sparks up the brain, gets those happy endorphins flowing, creates a sense of community – from doing something wonderful together. We sing for the sheer pleasure of it. But singing also helps to teach rhythm, listening skills, turn-taking, posture and body control, the expression of different emotions and, of course, movement – whether through dancing or specific actions.
