We meet on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th Thursdays, from 11:30 a.m. - 12:15 p.m. This is a great group for increasing the volume of your voice and helping with the clarity of your speech. Our certified music therapist, Carla Carnegie, is a lot of fun and brings rhythm instruments to keep everyone involved. No singing ability needed. We are currently meeting at the Elks Lodge at 1170 West Prairie Avenue, Coeur d'Alene, Idaho.
