Sing Out Loud with Parkinson's
PD Health @ Home October Wellness Wednesday programs will be a unique series of social activities encouraging you to try something new while meeting others in the PD community.
*This is a virtual program, taking place live, using the online Zoom platform. Instructions on joining the webinar are provided after registering.*
Studies show that singing can help maintain strength in the muscles involved in speech and voice in people with Parkinson’s disease. Join us for a fun way to exercise your voice, speech and swallowing muscles - through SINGING! A speech language pathologist and pianist will lead us in vocal warmups and rehearsing a musical piece together with lyric guides. Participants will have an opportunity to connect with peers to review and share experiences maintaining speech and voice strength through singing. No experience necessary and participants will be muted so everyone can sing out loud and in comfort!
