Leader: Angelynne Hinson

This five-week on-line interactive singing workshop series will help to strengthen and maintain the speaking voice.

This program is beneficial for adults with Parkinson’s disease, COPD, MS, post-stroke aphasia, or persons managing respiratory/vocal production issues.

Though specifically designed for people with vocal or breathing challenges, it is also has benefits for anyone who loves to sing and would like to learn more about your vocal instrument. 

Everyone is welcome.

Each 90-minute session will meet online with Angelynne Hinson, an independent artist and voice educator from Portsmouth NH, where you will learn about efficient singing voice techniques including movement and breathing exercises, vocal warm-ups and sing-a-longs.

The song repertoire will align with the technical skills presented at each workshop and the abilities of the participants. After each weekly workshop, participants will receive a follow up email with links for further listening and learning.

The goal is to have fun singing while you are learning skills to maintain your voice.  No singing experience necessary.

This series has five sessions.  Each week builds on the previous weeks and people should attend all of the sessions for the maximum benefit.  When you register for the first class on October 20, you are enrolled in the full program.

This program is a collaboration of the Dartmouth Health Aging Resource Center, Arts and Humanities, and Neurology Clinic and is made available by a generous grant from the Parkinson’s Foundation.

Registration for each series is limited to 25 participants.
