Constanza Roeder, Singer Songwriter

Texas
I met Marci Rosenberg at a Contemporary Commercial Music Summer Pedagogy Institute at Shenandoah University in the summer of 2015. My 20- minute lesson with her changed my life and set me on a course to find lasting vocal (and emotional) freedom. Her unique combination of intuition and experience as a singer, teacher, and speech-language pathologist allow her to do work that most teachers cannot do. No other voice teacher, speech-language pathologist, or much less a counselor had done anything like that for me before. Her training as a speech-language pathologist made me feel secure and her training as a singer and a voice teacher made me feel hopeful
that she could help me find
more freedom in my singing.

Dan Cooney, 

Broadway Performer

Dexter, MI
I had had a longstanding career that encompasses Broadway and national tours. Having been out of practice vocally over the past several years, I found myself losing my middle range. Within my first 2 sessions with Marci, my voice was already stronger, and much more versatile. In the short time with Marci, I regained the confidence I needed to sing challenging roles. Over my long professional Broadway career, I have worked with many voice teachers and Marci ranks among the very best! Her approach is clear, concise and produced immediate results.

Testimonials

Laurie Greenberg

Executive Coach

Ann Arbor, MI
As an executive coach, and founder of Infinite Potential Coaching, I am often asked to do presentations for a variety of groups. While I am very comfortable working with individual clients, Marci has helped me overcome my fears of public speaking. She's helped me shape my ideas and concepts in an organized way. I never thought I would actually enjoy creating workshops and presentations. Her straightforward and simple approach makes planning and organizing presentations and workshops easy, approachable, and fun! 

Jo Lee

Professional Actor/Singer

London, UK
 I am a professional singer and actress in the United Kingdom and was fortunate enough to have a private consultation with Marci to discuss some concerns I had about my voice after a lengthy illness. Within one session, I came away feeling that I had a plan of action, a clear understanding of what my issues likely were, and most importantly the hope and belief that I would be able to resolve my technical problems and get my voice back to how it used to be. Not only is Marci and expert in her field, but she is also very personable and clearly loves what she does. I am very excited about the changes she has helped me make and
I recommend her wholeheartedly.

The purpose of this handout is to help you better understand the stages of the common cold. I have provided some general guidelines to help guide your decision making about voice use. Please note, these guidelines do not replace recommendations by a laryngologist.

Below is another infographic I created based on the paper cited below  The purpose of this handout is to provide some general, subjective guidelines around managing your voice during and after a common cold. Please note, these guidelines do not replace recommendations by a laryngologist.

Below is a "swelling tracker" for your voice based on Dr. Bob Bastian's mucosal ceiling test. This is a subjective measure, and use of this tracker will typically be explained at your first session where you will receive a downloadable version. If swelling checks are positive for more than 2 weeks in absence of obvious illness, see a laryngologist.
