“WE break open the place inside, which is unbreakable, by learning to sing.”
Learn to sound like yourself.
What does that mean, to “sound like yourself?”
If we’re lucky, we come into this world singing at full volume. Singing is how we stay alive. (this is a central tenet of Voice Cult.) But somewhere along the way, we’re taught to be quiet by a mostly well-meaning world, and we lose something profound. Lifetimes can be spent grieving this loss, and not knowing how or why we’re so paralyzed by this very understandable grief.
Why do you want to sing? Take a minute with yourself and let this question sink in. It’s possible you may catch a glimpse of a path leading to the most vital and powerful aspects of who you are.
There is a lot of our ‘selves’ to be found in our voices. Singing is, at once, all these things:
If we let it, singing can take us down deep into ourselves.
It’s an honor to be there when you want to try. Thanks for trusting me.
A little about me: I was born and raised under a rock and roll stage, carted around the world by a musical family. I “became” a singer early on, spending thousands of hours as a student, earning a conservatory degree, performing on stages large and small, and working with some incredibly gifted colleagues in my own career. But it wasn’t until I started combining my growing meditation and spiritual path WITH my own decades of knowledge about singing that I started to feel truly alive as a performer, a teacher, and a person. I have taught voice to a variety of wonderful students since 2005, and I’m comfortable instructing in many styles of singing, such as Classical, Jazz, Straight-tone Choral, Musical Theater, Indian Raga, and Pop. Improvising with my students is my favorite thing to do.
My lessons employ a mixture of Western and Eastern methods and modalities.
I am NOT all about love and light.
