The secret power of singing in teambuilding

We all love a good sing-along from time to time, usually with a stiff drink! Research from the University of Oxford has shown that singing can be a great ice-breaker, bonding groups faster than other activities.

The study showed how people in an adult education class grew incredibly close over seven months through the power of singing.

"Given that music-making is an important part of all human cultures throughout history we think it probably evolved to serve some purpose,” research co-author Dr Jacques Launay commented.

“Evidence suggests that the really special thing music does for us is encourage social bonding between whole groups of people playing and dancing together".
