Performing Voice Update
A course offered by the Voice and Speech Laboratory at Massachusetts Eye and Ear.
Offered by the Voice and Speech Laboratory at Massachusetts Eye and Ear, "Performing Voice Update" covers the latest in the care and training of vocal performers.
The vocal performance field has been expanding its focus from a solely mechanical perspective to a more holistic view. Voice therapists from the Voice and Speech Laboratory share alternative approaches to voice care and training, including body and mind work. They also provide guidance in terms of evaluating the claims of various supplements and medicinals. They also share some updated information on hydration and hands-on experience with laryngeal massage techniques.
For more information, please call or email the Voice and Speech Laboratory's Clinical Coordinator, Barbara Wilson Arboleda, M.S., CCC-SLP (617-573-4050).

- The rationale and at least one specific exercise application for three holistic/alternative approaches to voice care.
- Current thinking regarding the impact of hydration, supplements and herbals on the voice.
- The rationale for laryngeal massage and at least one technique for application of laryngeal massage.
