What People are Saying…
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.
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.
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 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.
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
August 2013Hi Mary, I love my Voice Amplifier! I mean really LOVE IT! I am a professional speaker/trainer representing Park University. I travel all over the country speaking & training to very large groups & my voice was becoming stressed. I tell all of my audiences about the Voice Amplifier, show it & direct them to Voice Aerobics & tell them how great it is for meetings, training & presentations. I also had my line dance instructor use it & he loved it.
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.
Thanks for the class and DVD’s. They are very helpful. The hardest part will be to actually do the exercises on a regular basis. Perhaps we will meet again. Thanks again for your generosity.
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.
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!
