The AudAbility workshop involves therapeutic singing and voice exercise focused on mitigating common Parkinson’s-related voice problems, such as speech that is too quiet, monotonic or too slow/too fast, breathiness, and slurring of words..
While singing, you will be moving, and you will play a variety of musical instruments, because we know that multi-tasking promotes neuroplasticity (the formation of new brain connections).
When you enroll, you will meet one-on-one with a music therapist to discuss what you hope to get from the program. The therapist will then record a video of you singing and measure your voice with a decibel meter to establish a baseline. After six months, and every six months thereafter, you will repeat this process so you can witness and celebrate what we expect to be exciting improvements. Read More
