Inhibited to Sing? Brain Research Overcomes It

Do you find yourself inhibited to sing in public? If so, you are not alone. Most people find themselves meeting up with inner fear and inhibition when they go to sing before others.

Why is that? Brain researcher and musician Dr. Dan Levitin of McGill University is conducting very interesting work on the effect of sound upon our brain.

Nuria Escude, director of Music Therapy at Barcelona University, posted this interesting video clip of his work. It seems that people who suffer from the rare disease of William's Syndrome, have alot to teach us about overcoming our inhibitions to singing.

How does inhibition stop you from singing?
