At a recent event in Salford, Jennifer led a brilliant workshop which demonstrated the stress-busting power of singing; within the space of just an hour, she had shown us both its physical and mental benefits and transformed an initially reluctant group of delegates into a scratch choir, laughing together and singing in harmony.
