I’m delighted to have the opportunity to work with Camp Participants at the 38th annual summer experience for children with asthma. Founded by Dr. Myron Liebhaber, a pediatric allergist and immunologist at Sansum Clinic for over 30 years. I haven’t met the man personally yet but he sounds like a fun guy with huge love and concern for kids who live with asthma. I was thrilled when I received the invitation from Margaret Weiss, director of Camp Wheez and health education director for Sansum Clinic, to bring singing to the campers.
There’s a saying from Zimbabwe: “If you can walk, you can dance, If you talk, you can sing!” Are you one of those people who sing in the shower, your closet, or the car? Would you like to take it to the next level but at some point in your life had a well meaning teacher, parent or friend suggest that you lipsinc instead because you couldn’t carry a tune? Singing is just a matter of training. In addition, there are multitudes of benefits for the physical body, the mind and the spirit that one can achieve through singing.
Here’s an interesting article on how the quality of one’s voice affects others' perceptions. I love the quote that “stress leaks out” when people feel less confident.
"My daughter has shown incredible confidence and strength in her singing… I was amazed at how quickly you helped her achieve perfect pitch and how to sing with diaphragmatic support."- Scott Alexander
