Tremble Clefs Arizona is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) Charity
This clinically beneficial program provides vocal and movement exercises and generates new learning and comfortable challenges in a shared supportive environment. We meet on a weekly basis. Our 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.
Tremble Clefs was founded in Scottsdale Arizona in 1994. Before the pandemic, our four choral groups met weekly in different locations in Maricopa County.
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.
