[I wanted] “to say thank you again for everything you've done for me. I'm doing these huge, four hour long presentations (twice a day) all over the northeast. I've been doing the presentation for over three weeks.... And I still have my voice and minimal tension [and] I owe that to you.” Melissa
“Irene gave me my voice back.  She taught me how my voice worked and how to utilize it in the best way possible so that I could continue performing in classical concerts and musical theatre productions, something that before seeing her, I thought I would have to give up.  I owe the continuation of my musical endeavors to her.” Jessica
