Leader: Angelynne Hinson

This five-week on-line interactive singing workshop series will help to strengthen and maintain the speaking voice.  It is designed for adults with Parkinson’s disease, COPD, or persons managing respiratory/vocal production issues. In addition, the sessions are beneficial for adults with MS, and selected adults with post stroke aphasia.

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 program 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 7, you are enrolled in the full program.

This Program is supported in part by a grant from the NH State Council on the Arts and The National Endowment for the Arts to D-H Arts and Humanities and will be offered three times over the next year.

Session 1:  Oct 7, 14, 21, 28 and Nov 4

Session 2:  Jan 13, 20, 27 Feb 3, 10

Session 3:  Mar 10, 17, 24, 31, Apr 7

Registration for each series is limited to 25 participants.
