About us

Come and celebrate the awesome healing power of your voice. Whether you already sing or have always wished you could, this workshop can change your life. During this week, you will be shown how to find and use your true, natural voice. There will be great individual attention with exercises to relax the throat, build confidence, increase range, sing in key, and project with power. Then, using favorite songs, participants will develop the extraordinary gifts we are all born with. It is a thrilling, positive experience for everyone. The results can be simply amazing as each of us, no matter what level of experience, triumphs over the physical, emotional, and self-conscious patterns that limit us—even if you’ve never been able to carry a tune!

You can find confidence through the gentle whisper of a lullaby, release emotion with the cry of the blues, or rekindle your passion with a driving rhythmic chant. No special talent or previous experience is necessary. Whether you already sing in public and want to take the next step, or you just want to hit the notes when you sing in the car, you'll find yourself communicating freely and singing like you've always wanted to. Therapists, coaches, and workshop leaders will also find the techniques valuable for use with their clients. Space is limited. Please register early.

Please visit for stories, videos, testimonials, and pictures.

Note: Bring instruments, CDs, and songbooks if you like.
