Daniel McCabe

dan-mccabeIdeas are conveyed through the words we choose – but meaning is conveyed through the voice.” Daniel McCabe trained as a classical singer at the Oberlin Conservatory, the Eastman School of Music, and the Sweelinck Conservatorium in the Netherlands. His singing teachers included Howard Hatton, Richard Miller, Jan DeGaetani, and Max van Egmond. He graduated cum laude from Oberlin with degrees in voice and Renaissance Intellectual History, then received a Masters and Doctorate in voice at the Eastman School of Music . He was on the voice faculty at The American Conservatory in Chicago, SUNY @ Buffalo School of Music, and as Visiting Professor at Oberlin. Daniel McCabe performed throughout the US and Europe, and appears on over 12 recordings. His solo CD An American Idyll was received with praise and acclaim in Billboard and The New Yorker.     

In 1996 Daniel McCabe lost his voice to a medication he had been on. He then decided to pursue speech pathology with special certification in vocology at the University of Iowa. He worked there for 3 years with Ingo Titze, PhD, developing a therapy for teachers which would help them with vocal fatigue.

Dr. McCabe, DMA, CCC-SLP  is a certified Speech-Language Pathologist, specializing in medical conditions that affect voice, communication, swallowing, and functions of the head and neck. He is a charter member of the Pan-American Vocology Association (PAVA), which promotes the understanding and study of vocology – “The science and practice of voice habilitation”.  Daniel McCabe’s clinical research appears in peer reviewed journals, and deals with voice, chronic cough, and swallowing difficulties.

Daniel McCabe feels strongly that any knowledge we are fortunate enough to acquire should be shared freely with those who can make use of it. He is a sought after mentor, and as a result has created the Eugen Grabscheid Vocology Mentorship at Mount Sinai. He allows other speech pathologists, voice teachers, and students to observe his practice at Mount Sinai Medical Center; he does presentations to universities, schools, and medical departments; he is a frequent presenter at national voice conferences.

Daniel McCabe sees patients for medical voice, speech, swallowing, and cough conditions at the Eugen Grabscheid Voice Center at Mount Sinai Faculty Practice Associates at 5 East 98th Street in Manhattan, and privately in the Orange County, NY area. He provides voice lessons for singers and actors at the Grabscheid Voice Center, throughout the greater NY metropolitan area, and travels to see patients on special invitation.
