Singing Voice Services
If you are a singer or if your singing voice is of concern to you, our Singing Voice Specialist (SVS), Faye Muntz, M.M., will see you during the initial evaluation with the voice team. An SVS provides a separate focus from a singing coach or teacher. She has expertise in the rehabilitation of singing voices which is usually outside the scope of regular voice lessons. Faye has extensive experience and expertise in rehabilitating singers who have suffered laryngeal injury or muscular imbalances. Frequently the voice teachers in the community refer their students to be seen by Faye when they have concerns. Faye’s evaluation and recommendations are necessary in order for us to provide an accurate treatment plan for you.
Singing voice services are not covered by insurance and fees are due at the time of your appointment. Most of the patients who are singers require sessions with our Singing Voice Specialist, and we find that it is actually less expensive and time-consuming for the singer if the Singing Voice Specialist is present at the initial evaluation.
