Please note that the Singing for Snorers exercises are graded and start off suitably easy for people who have not sung since childhood. The ones you see and hear in this video are from well into the three-month programme, by which time you are ready for a greater challenge!

Research - The results of a clinical trial of
The author of the paper, Consultant Otolaryngologist Malcolm Hilton BM BCh FRCS, reports that there was a statistically significant reduction in frequency of snoring and daytime sleepiness after three months intervention using the Singing for Snorers exercises.

IFOS* World Congress of Otorhinolaryngology and Head and Neck Surgery
(* International Federation of Oto-Rhino-Laryngological Societes)
Alise's submission was accepted by the IFOS scientific committee and her e-Poster, "Why you might consider prescribing Singing for Snorers to patients presenting with a chronic snoring problem or mild to moderate sleep apnoea" was displayed at the Congress.
Alise attended the 5-day Congress in Paris with the aim of inspiring ENT (Ear, Nose and Throat) doctors to carry out further clinical trials using the Singing for Snorers exercises.
To increase her chances of being noticed there, being only 5' 2", Alise also entered the video competition set up as part of the Congress celebrations. Her video was one of the four selected to be shown repeatedly on a large screen during the Congress.
You can see the original video on the competition website here: IFOS 2017 Video Competition (The video is exactly the same as the one at the top of this page except for the very end where it invites delegates at the IFOS Congress to read Alise's ePoster.)
A pilot research project conducted by Alise Ojay suggested that singing exercises can reduce snoring by toning lax muscles in the upper throat. [Ojay A, Ernst E. Can singing exercises reduce snoring? A pilot study. Complement Ther Med 2000; 8(3): 151-156]
With the aim of increasing the effect observed in the trial, Alise developed Singing for Snorers, a graded programme of singing exercises specifically designed to tone the muscles at the common sites of the snoring vibration. These sites are the soft palate, the tongue, the nasal passages and the palatopharyngeal arch.

A message from the author
These exercises are being sold in good faith with the hope that many people will benefit from them. Since they are part of on-going research and cannot carry a guarantee, I would like to quote one of many jubilant users of Singing for Snorers to help explain the 'good faith':
This was a woman, referred to me by an ENT surgeon, who had tried many other remedies without success and was considering surgery. Not any more!
August 2014 update
For over ten years, since the launch of Singing for Snorers in 2002, I only quoted one customer on this website because I wanted to be able to offer you the reassurance of evidence from clinical trials rather than simply customer testimonials which might, in the absense of such independent evidence, give cause for scepticism. This took some restraint! However to celebrate the publication of the first such clinical trial, I am now allowing myself a whole page of testimonials (see Testimonials page) and two more quotes from happy customers here. I hope you agree that this is fair enough.
