Voice and communication are crucial aspects of daily life for all humans.  Voice programs will help you develop your voice through guided change.  You will learn how to prepare and support the voice for the best possible function, and how to modify vocal behaviors and make lifestyle changes to maintain your new voice throughout life. We specialize in working with the unique needs of each individual client.  Voice programs are created based on the results of a comprehensive voice evaluation. Sessions are typically weekly and follow the semester schedule.

In the Voice Disorders Track we offer the following:

Voice Training is available for transgender people seeking voice change. The focus of your session is to gradually shape your voice to come into alignment with who you are while maintaining the health and balance of your voice.

Voice Enhancement is for anyone who is interested in maximizing the power, clarity, endurance, and flexibility of the voice. Many professional speakers including story-tellers, attorneys, presenters and many others come to boost their current voice skills to produce a voice that feels more empowering in their work and life.

Voice Therapy is for clients who have seen an Ear Nose and Throat doctor who are referred to our center to improve in function and ease in daily life. Singers and actors, attorneys, clergy, teachers, receptionists, sales personnel, physicians, professors, and anyone else whose ability to earn a living is impacted negatively by loss of vocal quality and endurance can benefit.
