Master of Music Therapy
Do you want to explore your potential to sing & use your voice for for well being, enjoyment, relaxation, personal growth and creative self expression?
Individual singing sessions and group song circles are available with vocal coach Sally Cooper.
Individual Singing Sessions:
Support for freeing your singing voice for
therapeutic personal growth, well being and creative self expression. Techniques for vocal health, as well as vocal improvisation and songwriting (if required).
Sally also works with voice meditation methods, so you can learn how use your voice for relaxation.
Accompaniment on piano or guitar is provided and support is also offered for confidence building with singing.
Performance technique guidance for singers with an emphasis on support for developing ones own authentic &
natural approach as a performer.
Sally works with encouraging your style and choice of songs and with your goals with singing. (Rather than enforcing a particular style on you).
Group Song circles:
Song circles offer a nurturing and supportive space to explore playful ways to connect to, (or reconnect to) your natural singing voice. And to express yourself with your voice in your own unique way.
Rather than losing ones’ identity in a strict and controlled choir type of group setting, (where all singers often sing set parts), song circles encourage the natural diversity of each individuals’ singing voice. Allowing a gentle and relaxed space for dissonance in the group to become harmonious as a natural process.
We also explore the potential to use your voice through sounding, sacred singing, and meditative chanting for relaxation.
