SongShine Classes: 
Get Ready for the Extraordinary

When people come to us barely able to speak – having lost their vocal identity and the ability to communicate with friends, family, and caregivers – it is traumatic. Yet, after just a few classes, the improvement can be astonishing. Integrating everything from vocalises (singing exercises) to physical awareness and relaxation, conscious breathing, diction and articulation exercises, singing with others, and the use of imagination and role playing, our multidisciplinary approach is not only extraordinary and restorative, but also flat-out fun.
