Explore singing techniques in this therapeutic music program to help support a strong and healthy voice. Designed for people who live with Aphasia, COPD, Multiple Sclerosis, or Parkinson’s Disease, but open to any members looking for an opportunity to use their voice in new ways, this class promises to provide tools to combat symptoms that interfere with vocal clarity, lung capacity, volume, flexibility, and self-expression. Exercises and group singing will help foster practical skills to develop more mindful approaches to how you use your singing and speaking voice.
