Living A Vocal Life: The eCourse
(COMING in Early 2019!)
Does this sound like you?
A creative life is what you’ve chosen. It almost doesn’t feel like a choice because you can’t NOT live creatively. Creativity has also chosen YOU. Let that sink in for a moment. We are ALL creative beings. Creativity is important for humanity because it's our soul’s way of expressing who we are and who we are becoming. But a lot of people don’t say yes to the creative life. It’s too full of uncertainty. You’ve said yes. That is a wonderful place to begin.
But where do you go from here?
Living A Vocal Life integrates over 30 years of my experience in performing, teaching, and coaching to help singers who want to create a sustainable LIFE in music. From body awareness to branding, picking a song to connecting with an audience, booking shows to signing contracts, we will look at where you are on your journey, create clarity around where you'd like to go, and then embark on a path that will take you there, one step at a time.
In this course you will...
Discover ways to stay plugged into the WHY of your chosen vocation when the going gets rough
(and create clarity about what that WHY is).
Get an overview of the different skill sets that can contribute to artistic and professional success
and define what success looks like for YOU.
Learn how to manage your time and energy so your commitments are aligned with your
capacity and greater purpose.
Create tools for keeping mind, body, and spirit healthy while living your life as an artist, and more.
