There's a companion recording for this workbook & 27 songs. There are logging pages for you to track their improvement. While there are no guarantees here, I've had tremendous success with this. It's especially useful if the person or people you are working with have always enjoyed music and singing. This has been a joyful project; and I'm so happy with the success I've had with these techniques.
What happens is that the electrical pulses created by the synapses when singing break up the bad protein strands in the brain; reopening the neural pathways. The result is a regaining of linquistic abilities and even memory. One Alzheimer's patient could not even form words when we started. Now she tells me long stories in an eloquent fashion, after only 6 weeks! This is something you can do with your loved one, or in groups of Dementia patients.

About BLUES CD Roots Don't Lie: "A masterfully produced contemporary (Chicago style) jazz/blues release that is fresh and vivid. World class performances and arrangements. A must for any true music lover's collection." - Jim DeCicco, Hollywood Music In Media Awards
About Indigo: "In the seemingly eternal debate about who or what is or isn't a jazz singer, anybody with ears would without hesitation and with great enthusiasm cite Cheryl Hodge as the real thing." - Bob Protzman, NPR affiliate, Writer for Downbeat
"Live and Alive" shows (Hodge's) striking gifts; especially her full and powerful voice...shining most prominently on the bluesier tunes... Her 8ve leaps and pitch-perfect landings evoke Portland great Nancy King, while her bluesier side is reminiscent of Ernestine Anderson. Her song, Before Sunset, also reveals her ability to write and execute advanced harmonies..." Lynn Darroch, The Oregonian
