The work of the authors in the present volume, as introduced below, reflects the three main research themes of AIRS: Theme 1 - Singing and Development, Theme 2 - Singing and Education, and Theme 3 - Singing and Well-being. The authors represent Canadian, American, British, Swiss, German, Estonian, and Japanese perspectives. From multidisciplinary perspectives, the collection of articles provides a foundation for future studies of how singing develops in every human being, what are the best ways to teach singing and to use singing to teach, and how singing can positively impact on well-being, broadly defined to include intercultural understanding, intergenerational understanding, and specific mental and physical health benefits.
