In May of 2016 I decided to stretch out and took a course to become certified as a
SongShine instructor. The course is designed to help those whose speech has been affected by Parkinson’s, stroke, other neurological disorders or an aging voice gain vocal power and strength. I started teaching in the Fall of 2016 and have been running courses ever since. I returned for an intensive three-day SongShine workshop in Palm Desert in November of 2017. Ruthanna Metzgar and Peter Harris were again totally inspiring.

The course offers:

- vocal exercises and group singing to strengthen voices

- body awareness, relaxation and breathing techniques

- drama-based activities to spark imagination and encourage emotional expression
