We are looking for community choir leaders, vocal teachers or music therapists confident in group leading to develop their skills in the growing area of singing for lung health.

You will be an experienced singing leader, with a core repertoire which can be taught by ear, simple breathing and vocal warm-up exercises and a basic knowledge of the anatomy and physiology of the voice. 

What's included?
You will receive specific training in physical warm-ups, breathing exercises, appropriate repertoire and relaxation techniques tailored to those living with a lung condition. 

Singing has been shown to have a positive impact on people living with a lung condition, greatly improving their physical and psychological wellbeing. Increasingly, vocal leaders with the skills to lead singing for people with lung conditions are being sought to work with health services to deliver this important work, particularly in London.

Accommodation is not provided as part of the training. The Ibis Hotel in Greenwich offers affordable accommodation and is just a ten minute minute walk from the Laban Building.

Individuals: £196

Trinity Laban Alumni: £170

Students: £70

We welcome applications from anywhere in the UK, but please be aware that we will prioritise leaders living in London as there is currently a shortage of singing leaders with the right skills to lead singing for lung health in the capital.
