What People are Saying…

My dad has lots of exercise for Parkinson’s DVDs but yours is the one he does everyday.  My mom likes to join him because it’s a fun class and the exercises are easy and help lower her stress.  Dad enjoys feeling part of your workout group. Thanks for your enthusiasm and sincere spirit.

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.

I attended your October 30, 2010 presentation of Voice Aerobics to learn more about supporting my Parkinson’s friends. Well, the invaluable information was wonderful for them, but also for me, personally. As someone dealing with Post-Polio Syndrome including upper body and respiratory system deficits, your Voice Aerobics added fun and focus to my overall exercise routine. Thank you!

We all love seeing you. I can’t tell you enough how much we appreciated your visit. We had a very large turnout yesterday based on the fact that you were coming. The class has been a hit. It was like having our very own celebrity in the house.

I use the Hi-Volt bracelet and CD daily. The Hi-Volt keeps me honest. It’s got to flash in order for me to count the exercise as done. If I have trouble getting it to light, the CD is broken down into 8 tracks so I can go back to the beginning of the track and start over. My favorite track is #7 Tongue Twisters. When I finish with the Hi-volt I do some (or all) of Songbirds. I’ve had PD for 29 years, have been through 3 one-on-one speech classes, and this CD & Hi-Volt combination is the best thing I’ve found yet for maintaining and building on the gains in speech quality.

Hi Mary, I love your blog and enjoyed you so much at last weekend’s retreat. My husband and I immediately did the songbird CD.

October 2011 I am thoroughly enjoying your dvd, cd and the amplifier. You have done a great job in making it easy to use the products and made it very helpful. The amplifier allows me to communicate better with everyone of my family and friends and also it is very portable and manageable. The dvd and cd are fun to use and also have been very cleverly designed to promote speech and as well do a lot of stretching exercises. God bless you, I have had Parkinson’s Disease for the past 12 years and have taken a lot of speech therapy sessions and your products have made it easier to continue with my speech exercises. I would highly recommend all three products to anyone who has speech problems. Keep up the good work Mary, and Thank You Kindly for making it easier for me. Best Regards,

I left my Songbird disc in Florida. Drat! I miss it and would like another. The one I’m referring to is the one on which you play the piano. I call it “The Fun One.” It has glorious patterns which keep the beat as you change tempos.

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.

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!
