What People are Saying…
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.
Love your Songbird DVD. I use it in class at Lee Center for Rehab & Wellness. Are you considering putting out another one?
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.
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.
Hi, Mary! I meant to send you a thank-you for the wonderful articles you write about Parkinson’s disease. I think you must be an awesome person as well as an awesome speech therapist! Thank you so much for sharing your literary expertise with my readers of the Parkinson Foundation of Harris County (Houston) monthly Bulletin.
December 2012 I have looked for these on-line, and I can’t find one with a boom mic, only. I train seminars for my living, and I now use your amplifier a lot. I was a vocal major in college, and I can fill a room with sound, but at the end of the day, or week, my throat hurts. Since using your amplifier, I have had no problems, and I can just talk in a “normal” voice, and everyone can hear me.
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.– January 2013
Mary, November 7, 2011 Thank you! I have been meaning to check in with you and well…time just gets by so quickly! I am nothing but pleased!!! I will continue to pass the information on to other contract instructors….and apparently students are interested too! Voice is back to normal and I am doing what I can to make sure to keep it that way too!
Hi Mary. Thank you for your response and advice. I received the amplifier, and it is so great and wonderful to be able to hear me again. Thank you again for your help!
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.
