Keep it loud!

DO, RE, MI, FA, SOL, loud and clear!

Practice makes perfect and it is the best way to start speaking with more confidence. Mentored by a Parkinson’s speech therapist, you will be able to have a go at vocal exercises, musical tutorials, songs, spoken work challenges and even dramatic performances.

Repeat after me: keep it on!
