Singercise – Parkinson’s Therapeutic Singing program

Alysha Suley, MM, MT-BC of 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, and reduce feelings of isolation. The program, offered completely free of charge to all participants thanks to a community grant from the Parkinson’s Foundation, will be held virtually over zoom until further notice.
