Daniel McCabe, DMA, CCC-SLP, is currently the Chief Vocologist at the Eugen Grabscheid MD Voice Center at Mount Sinai in New York. He helps voice professionals in their management of voice disorders. He has created new techniques for changing the dynamic properties of vocal fold tissues, measuring the effects of these changes, and integrating these changes into a performer’s use of their voice. Dr. McCabe was trained at Oberlin, the Eastman, and the University of Iowa, having notable mentors such as Richard Miller, Max van Egmond, Jan DeGaetani, and Ingo Titze. He was an active performer, and has 12 CDs to his name, including those on the Billboard Top 10. His CD An American Idyll was placed in nomination for the Grammy. He has taught as faculty at SUNY Buffalo, the American Conservatory in Chicago, the Hochstein School, and has been visiting faculty at Oberlin and the Eastman, where he received his DMA. His work with Ingo Titze at the University of Iowa resulted in a new therapy for those with vocal fatigue, and his research publications have included work in voice pathologies, neural plasticity, swallowing disorders, tissue plasticity, and the use of voice signals as a screening tool for laryngeal cancer in veterans.
