According to The American Academy of Otolaryngology–Head and Neck Surgery (AAO-HNS) approximately 1 in 3 people have their voice affected by some type of disorder. Additionally, 7.2% of Americans miss one or more days of work due to a voice problem and for professional voice users that percentage significantly increases.
For people who use their voice as a tool of the trade, being in tune with their “instrument” is crucial. Those with vocal disorder issues can now receive enhanced care with the addition of the new Fender Music and Voice Studio in the newly remodeled and expanded Johns Hopkins Voice Center located in the Milton J. Dance, Jr. Head and Neck Center located at the Greater Baltimore Medical Center (GBMC).
Fender donated nearly $20,000 of musical instruments and audio equipment, including guitars, percussion devices and acoustic amplifiers.
