“Recently I developed a voice problem which ended my ability to sing (a voice disorder caused by poor vocal habits called Muscle Tension Dysphonia). Fortunately I was referred to Donna to help me regain my voice. In just two lessons, my voice began to return. I am optimistic that I will make continual progress with her expertise and guidance.” Alice Brown
“I am so grateful for all the work you have done with me. I am able to hold and sustain notes better than ever before. I am learning so much from you. It is such a blessing to me. Learning and growing so much. I cannot thank you for all the ways you are helping. It has been strengthening my voice a lot.”
Kerry Olthof – Choir member with The People’s Church Choir – Living Truth
“Donna is Amazing and Fun to Work With!! With her help and expertise my breathing capacity has been greatly enhanced. Now, when I facilitate seminars, I don’t run out of breath while speaking. Her knowledge in the field of voice and specialized techniques taught me how the diaphragm works and how to properly utilize it. By practicing these techniques I can control my breath while speaking for long intervals. I strongly recommend Donna to anyone who wants to improve their public speaking techniques.”

VOICE CARE - Turn back the clock after years of mis-use and vocal abuse!
Regain strength, stamina and lost tone quality!
Using the voice is a skill, a craft, just like everything else is. Funny to think of it that way but the gift alone is not enough. When your passion to create overrides your level of skill, problems can happen.
Unknowingly, over time, we do things to our voice that takes a toll. Common concerns are hoarseness, feeling a shortness of breath, not being able to be heard when speaking, feeling a lump in the throat, loss of vocal range, Muscle Tension Dysphonia, difficulty controlling volume, airy sounds, and common voice disorders cannot be corrected properly by doing vocal scales or practicing a vocal method.
Trying to fix the result or symptom is useless. We can reinforce the problem areas that way.
Oh and let’s not forget all those nice people who do not get to use their voice much because they are shy or have a job/school that keeps them from talking. An underused voice is just as susceptible to experiencing blips as an overused voice.
Speed-up Healing and Prevent Re-Injury - If you are being treated by a doctor, coaching and learning how to use your voice in a way that does not cause distress to the vocal cords, will prevent re-injury and can help speed-up healing.
The voice cannot be replaced. When you experience your voice getting weak or producing unpleasant tones, it can be scary. I am here to work with you and work you through the rough spots in an atmosphere that is supportive and focused on the health of your voice for life-long use.
I want you to sound just as fantastic as you want to sound!
