Salt Spring Throat Singing

Free Workshops | Private Lessons | Local Discounts


Service Summary

Hi, I'm a vocal teacher that specializes in exotic and extreme techniques. I just moved to Salt Spring and am starting to offer my services, with focus on Throat Singing. Along with free workshops to connect with the community, I am offering a significant local discount on private lessons. The techniques we cover provide an excellent basis for Sound Healers and Musicians looking to expand their vocal talents. After establishing healthy vocal mechanics, we explore both experimental effects and traditional Throat Singing techniques, through a simple step-by-step process. Additionally, my method has been designed from a Unity-oriented perspective, and the exercises we do apply to a much broader spectrum than Throat Singing alone. They are universal principles for all overtone & distortion effects. This includes vocal techniques commonly used in Metal, Rock, Voice Acting, and Beatboxing. Contemporary Singing techniques can also be enhanced by the overtone fundamentals we discuss. Not to mention... playing around with your voice can be a lot of fun. How you wish to integrate this offering is really up to you. All the best!

However, here on Salt Spring I'll be offering my services at a large discount - only $100 CAD for a session. This can be in person or via Zoom, recorded if you wish, and range from 60-90 minutes (extra time gifted at my discretion).

My local offerings will likely focus on Throat Singing, but I also offer technique coaching for Metal, Rock, Voice Acting, Beatboxing, and more.
