Important message from Mary:
Voice Aerobics® and Speak Easy classes are not a substitute for formal speech therapy, but rather, are designed to help you maintain the skills you may have already achieved in therapy and help strengthen and maintain your voice use. We never stop learning and the more you know, and the more you do, the better you will feel.
