Virtual Staff Choir Programme

Keith Acheson

THE PRODUCT

During this period of isolation and working from home, what could be a better vehicle to help your staff reconnect, in a relaxed and entertaining way, than with their very own virtual staff choir. 
Through the use of a video conferencing platform, your team will spend approximately one hour singing warm up exercises, leading to a performance of a well known song of their choosing.

HOW WILL IT HELP YOUR STAFF?

· Staff will feel less isolated and more connected to their colleagues. 
· They will enjoy a greater sense of wellbeing through the release of endorphins (a proven positive side affect of singing!) 
· They will experience less stress as cortisol begins to lower in the blood stream.
· They will develop their singing and communication skills through vocal exercises and learning new songs.
