Our most recent newsletter was printed and mailed in May 2023
It includes updates from ALL 4 in person music therapy groups and from our Zoom offering. The feature article by Jim Histand relates how in 2018 two singing therapy groups for people with PD, one located in Scottsdale and one located in Sun City, combined to incorporate and achieve charity status with the IRS.
This clinically beneficial program provides vocal and movement exercises and generates new learning and comfortable challenges in a shared supportive environment. Most groups meet on a weekly basis.
Our Music Director, Sun Joo Lee, has a Master's in Music Therapy from Arizona State University. She has worked with our choral groups since 2008. Her energy and dedication inspires us all. Classes are also given by talented Interim Music Directors, Kiersten Jungbluth, Merri Zohar and Carolyn Perkins.

Tremble Clefs was founded in Scottsdale Arizona in 1994. In 2018 we incorporated and were granted nonprofit status by the IRS.
Voice loss, decreased voice volume, voice with a monotone quality are common symptoms of Parkinson's disease.
Regular participation in our singing groups strengthens the vocal chords. Participation keeps members active and engaged, resulting in new-found energy.
