Voice in a Jiff: Singing 101 for Speech Language Pathologists and Speech Language Therapists is a downloadable manual for better understanding clients and patients who sing. Singers have a lingo all their own, and feel more comfortable explaining singing problems to someone familiar with singing terminology.


This could be beneficial to doctors like ENTs and Laryngologists, as well as Audiologists because singers may not have only voice problems.


Counselors, Therapists and Social Workers alike could benefit from this resource with its gender inclusive language and voice teachers can see the types of things SLPs discuss with their clients because much of this manual explains where singing and speech language pathology intersect.


Nothing like this exists, and care providers who may have little voice care experience or little to no singing education end up treating clients who really need them to understand their language.



“Voice in a Jiff!” Singing 101 for SLPs and SLTs is an educational manual to help care providers better understand singing terms, types of singing, where singing and SLP intersect, and how to improve outcomes for their clients and patients.


For clinicians of all kinds, even with minimal training in treating voice disorders or music, clear & concise terminology with visual examples help even brand-new musicians understand.


If you are a multi-tasking, multi-hat-wearing LTACH, SNF, Home Health or Hospital Speech-Language Pathologist, this is for you. If you’re an ENT who wants to better serve your singers, this is for you. If you’re a counselor or social worker who works through trauma associated with singing, this is for you!


Terms are presented in such an easy way, you’ll feel like a singing-voice specialist!

This was created to help dismantle gate-keeping of “singing voice training” and “singing pedagogy” and to make it more applicable and understandable by anyone.

I’ve already been trialing parts of the manual in my own private practice voice therapy clinic and the visuals seem to be REALLY helpful.
