Singing to support laryngeal lift

Many of my patients enjoy singing and it has been a source of reminiscing for several of them as well.  While singing I noticed that the patient who present with dysphagia also found the singing assisted with the laryngeal strength and improved swallow.   It is certainly better than prolonging /e/ or other forms of laryngeal strengthening.  We are getting two birds with one stone.
