Song Shine for Parkinson's
Songshine classes provide music based vocal therapy for those with Parkinson's disease, stroke, and other neurological disorders or aging voices.The classes include breathing exercises, vocal and speech exercises, and group singing presented in an educational and interactive style. The underlying focus is to gain vocal strength and have a good time together.
The Tremble Clefs of Portland has been specifically developed for people with Parkinson disease who are vocally challenged. Care-partners and family members are also encouraged and welcome to join as support members and singers. Within a fun, supportive, and success-oriented environment, the format of choir sessions is designed to address the needs people with Parkinson’s have in the areas of speech, social connection, and creative self expression. Each session, designed with music therapy techniques, will include vocal exercises infused with musical elements that focus on posture, breathing techniques, breath support, projection, and enunciation.
