Diane Leads Upcoming Singing Workshops

Hello! Diane, here. Earlier this year I led my first singing workshop in Asheville, North Carolina at the suggestion of my good friend and collaborator Isabel Castellvi. It was a welcome challenge that started me thinking deeply about the art and practice of singing, considering its most healing and transformative aspects that I’ve experienced and wanted to share. The gathering was a joyous adventure, leading me to offer workshops this past spring in Los Angeles, New York City and the Hudson Valley. 

Asheville workshop

Asheville singers, March 2017

Singing As Deep Self-Care and Embodied Expression:

This inclusive workshop is created with both new/never-before singers and experienced vocalists in mind. Diane guides participants through a series of bija mantras–seed sounds for warming up and connecting with the voice as it inhabits and influences the body. There will be an exploration of personal mythology as a means of discovering and developing one’s own ‘vocal signature’–an opportunity to delve into and revel in the natural qualities of one’s unique voice in an encouraging environment. Group and individual improvisation leads to spontaneous song-making. Tools shared are flexible, and with the intention that empowered singers help create healthy communities.

Upcoming workshops:
Each workshop is open to twelve singers, $60 registration fee.

Feedback from Diane’s private voice students*:

Diane is doing far more than training my voice. She is bringing me into a new awareness of my capabilities. She is marvelously intuitive, knowledgeable, clear, precise, empathic and most of all, non-judgmental.” – B.S.

Diane made me comfortable by singing with me and using humor to dissolve my anxiety.” – N.K.

Diane is a great teacher. Her approach is inventive, creative, and kind, with a focus on what is most important in music–finding your voice. Needless to say, I highly recommend her.” – B.H.

*Private voice instruction and songwriting / performance coaching available locally in Charlottesville, Virginia. Skype lessons also available. Workshops may be arranged for private homes or event spaces. Please inquire with interest.

Rosemary Salve: Freshly Made, Shipping Now!

I’ve made a fresh batch of Rosemary Salve. Available locally in Charlottesville, VA at Gift Forest this November & December, from this website, and most of my tour stops!

Rosemary’s a powerful herbal ally–sweet protector to massage over the heart and throat area whilst traveling. This salve makes good love for the skin, deeply moisturizing, for abrasions, bruises, psoriasis, burns, et cetera*. My family likes to use this salve for healing and preventing split fingers in wintertime.
