This paper explored whether there are differences in the effects of group singing intervention on people with Parkinson’s (PwPs) in Australia, UK and South Korea.

Grenville Hancox, Artistic Director and Founder of Sing to Beat Parkinson’s and Trish Vella-Burrows, Director of Research were both co-authors of this paper. The paper is open-access and freely available to view here.
