A Whirlwind Month of Music

Wow, what an exciting few weeks we have had at the studio! There's so much singing and music-making happening, and I'm just thrilled about it.

First, we had our Studio Gathering on September 13. The evening was full of so many wonderful performances from our students and instructors. You can see a handful of pictures from the event on our Facebook page here.

Secondly, our two SoulSinging classes launched this month, bringing together 2 groups of soulful, dedicated singers. These students will meet weekly for the next 4 months, culminating in a performance in January. Stay tuned for details about that event - you won't want to miss hearing it.

Next up at the studio is a NEW workshop we are offering on November 13: Mind and Body Health for Singers.  This is going to be a really wonderful workshop jam-packed with great information about how to take care of your voice and protect against things like allergies, cold season, etc. It will be taught by our voice teacher Nicole Berke and a wonderful wellness coach named Carrie Dickson. Read more below.

Lastly, take note below - save the date for our Resound NW Holiday Sing-Along Spectacular on December 9. I know it hard to believe, but holiday singing is just around the corner!

As the weather changes and we settle into fall, I wish you all the best in your music-making. May your lives resound!

A NEW Workshop for Singers!

Connect with like-minded music lovers and bolster your vocal health! Resound NW is pleased to announce we will be offering a brand new workshop on Mind and Body Health for Singers. Designed to both educate singers on achieving optimum health for their voices and help them develop specific health and musical goals, this workshop promises to cover a wide range of topics including, but not limited to, the following:

  • How your voice is affected by factors such as stress, diet and lack of sleep
  • How to create a routine for vocal strength and consistency
  • Techniques for identifying blockages in the body and removing them
  • Education on nutrition, movement and mindfulness (meditation and breathing techniques)
  • Education on the chakras, focusing specifically on the throat and heart
  • Education about the three Ayurvedic doshas: Kapha, Pitta and Vata, PLUS a quiz to determine your individual constitution

In a nurturing and supportive environment, workshop participants will enjoy a combination of group singing and individualized health plans created to foster life-long mind/body balance, vocal strength and confidence.
Song Studio Classes

"Song Studio" is a performance class where Resound NW students perform a song they have prepared and received valuable coaching on their performance.  The class includes a mini-lesson for each student plus a professional pianist to accompany you.  

This class is fun, low-key, and an exciting way to learn about the craft of singing!  

The class is FREE to observe!  Read more -->
