Singercise – Parkinson’s Therapeutic Singing program

UPDATE!

We are making a joyful noise over at Singercise because our grant has been renewed for the 2021-2022 year!!! Check out our In-Person and virtual programs!

Bloomsburg Music Therapy has partnered with the Lewisburg YMCA at the Miller Center to offer a new program for people with Parkinson’s disease to improve speech intelligibility, increase vocal intensity, improve respiration and swallowing, provide a source of social support in a fun and engaging setting. The program, offered completely free of charge to all participants thanks to a community grant from the Parkinson’s Foundation, continues its virtual manifestation with a new quarter opening for registration and beginning Wednesday, July 7, and will begin a new quarter of In-Person programming in August.

Interested parties may register by calling 570-316-1899 or e-mailing info@bloomsburgmusictherapy.org.
