"It [the music therapy] was exciting and took the emotions right out of my gut. - "Coach", resident at Silverado Memory Care Community and client of Orange Coast Music Therapy
"When I first started my voice was low and barely understandable (one of the joys of Parkinson's), but the music lessons, the singing and the voice exercises you have me practice have turned my entire persona around. I look forward to our sessions together and to discovering new ways to improve my voice and especially as part of the Tremble Clefs group. Far from a side benefit is the shock some of my friends exhibit when hearing my clear, stronger voice coming at them for the first time.
You've got me hooked!!!!! -Bob Sickler, member of "Tremble Clefs" and private client of Orange Coast Music Therapy
