Abstract/Description: The purpose of this study was to examine the effectiveness of a music therapy voice protocol (MTVP) on speech intelligibility and mood changes of individuals diagnosed with Parkinson disease. Each of six patients participated individually in 12 sessions of MTVP. A pretest/posttest comparison of the Visual Analog Mood Scale (VAMS) indicated a substantial positive mood change. Speech intelligibility components of breathing, volume, and voluntary speech production were also observed. Graphic results across sessions reflected an improvement in all patients' volume, breathing control and voluntary speech production.
