Does your child love singing around the house or in the shower? Do you ever hear them singing and wonder if they have potential but you’re not really sure?

Professor Sarah Wilson from the School of Psychological Sciences at the University of Melbourne suggests that singing offers a range of neuroprotective benefits, as well as activating a range of networks associated with movement, listening, planning, memory, and language, singing triggers the release of the feel-good neurotransmitter dopamine.
