We were buzzing this week!

Brought to you by Whole Vibes Music Therapy and Music Experiences

I tried a new intervention this week with my adaptive vocal clients! We rolled up pieces of paper and placed them on our lips to do our vocal warm-ups and exercises!

Why would we do such a thing?

I’m glad you asked!

Holding the paper up to our lips allows us to feel the vibrations that we are producing vocally. The vibrations cause us to be aware of the energy we are pushing forward and out of our mouth. When singing, it is important to make sure that energy is always moving forward for the best sound and that it doesn’t get “trapped” in your throat which leads to improper technique and possible vocal chord and muscle damage.

As we rolled out this method with my clients with autism, I noticed that they produced a clearer sound and really focused on the flow and direction of their vocals. This equals better technique and vocal functioning and a more pleasant sound overall.

What I love about music therapy is the ability to get creative and silly with interventions to help clients be most successful! Check out this clip of me with one of my girls this week!
