Your voice aerobic tape and songbirds CD are great and I purchased them to share with any Parkinson’s patients I work with now and may in the future. If they like it, I will have them order it.

I have watched the DVD in order to review it for the journal and it’s excellent!

August 2012 I picked up the amplifier at the post office Monday. It was such a relief to have the freedom to move around the classroom and know that the students will hear me. I also feel more confident when I go to staff meetings in the library. I had actually stopped talking during meetings because several teachers had mocked me when I tried to speak, but wasn’t able to project. Thank you again for expediting my order Mary!

I could definitely feel that my voice was not nearly as “tired” at the end of an all day seminar. I could speak to a group all day without constantly worrying where I was looking when I was speaking; it made it easier to walk around in the room or point to my slide presentation and everyone could still hear me. Superior to lapel mc or fixed mic since the voice amplifier “follows you” or “moves with you” – you aren’t controlled by it.

Hi, Mary! Wanted to thank you again for your vibrant and enthusiastic presentation at the Voice Aerobics workshop this past Saturday! It was informative and thought-provoking, while at the same time a barrel of fun!! If only, the more traditional aerobics classes which I attend were half as engaging!! As one of those who did not previously think I had any voice or speech issues which necessitated any concern, I now realize, thanks to your workshop, that even if this is true, all the more reason to commence a daily “practice” incorporating the techniques which you have pioneered to insure that this continues to be the case in the future.

We have used the Voice Aerobics DVD for about 3 weeks. It is very informative and fun. It gives a good workout of controlled exercises and you really feel good afterward. The amazing thing is we find ourselves humming or singing along with the radio, which we didn’t do before. I would highly recommend it to anyone with speech or muscle control problems.

Dear Mary, I had hoped to tell you how much I like your video. I do quite a bit of exercise so it is perfect for me. I will do it almost every morning.

I was out with some friends a few nights ago and someone said you have improved so much from a year ago (I had all the signs then, but was not diagnosed) and the other person said it is her voice which has improved the most. I thought you would like to know that because I am making real progress with you. I love how committed you are to helping people. You are indeed a wonderful person with all that you are doing, and your passion clearly shows.

The best part of the cruise? I enjoyed the voice aerobics so much. It’s right up my alley and something I really needed. The woman was kind and attentive, and we even received her voice aerobics disc in our goodie bag. I’ve played it at home and can see a real difference.

Mary, Recd the DVD and we are doing the exercises every other day. By the end of the DVD we feel our voices are stronger and hope the improvement carries over to all the time. Also, the upper body exercises is so good for Arnie as he had emphysema and his right lung has permanent damage to one lobe.

I really like the Songbird CD and use one or more tracks with my daily practice. My favorite is Speech Sound in Waltz Time. I have been known to sing this without the CD! Thank you for creating such a fun way to practice.

Juggling work, bills, and school were my life as a working student. Looking back now, I wonder how I did it! But when one is committed to a goal, anything is possible. Now I want to help a student achieve hers or his goals!
