      Tremolos Singing Group for People with PD and their caregivers

      Many people with Parkinson's Disease suffer from weak (quiet) speech. Singing is known to be a good voice strengthening exercise for people with Parkinson's Disease. Santa Cruz County has an ongoing singing group for people with Parkinson’s and their caregivers: the Santa Cruz Tremolos Singing Group for People with Parkinson’s. All are welcome!
      It's an ongoing opportunity to experience a very therapeutic and joyful singing experience. The positive side effects include: Easier breathing, improved posture & voice quality, increased feelings of positive social engagement. What's not to like with those outcomes?
      Weekly meetings: Every Thursday from 1:00 to 2:30 pm.
      Location: The Episcopal Church of St. John, 125 Canterbury Dr, Aptos, CA 95003

      *An important reminder (courtesy of Dorrie Melville, Speech Therapist): If possible, bring water with you. If you are unable, there is water and cups are available at St. John's. Sip frequently to stay hydrated because this is essential for your vocal (and overall physical) health.

      We are led by our director, Julie, with piano accompaniment. We sing a mixture of musical styles incorporating choral rounds, and call and response songs. No prior singing experience expected. All are welcome!
