In 2017 I developed and led my first workshop, "Singing as Embodied Expression & Deep Self-Care". Since then I’ve had the pleasure of bringing singing & songwriting workshops to more than twenty cities across the US, and major cities in the UK.
People have a deep desire to sing, and to sing with each other. I enjoy facilitating spaces that are supportive and encouraging, allowing for vulnerable and creative exchange. I began incorporating songwriting exercises into singing workshops, finding that a beautiful authenticity and expressiveness emerges when people sing their own words.
As a touring musician I’m happy to host private lessons and workshops along my travel routes. Concert dates + workshops here.

Feedback from Students & Attendees
"I am trying to learn more about coming back into my body, and making sound is such a natural part of that healing. I am grateful for all that you share, including your encouragement." - G. in Asheville, NC
"One of the things I did for my birthday was go to a collaborative singing and song-writing workshop, facilitated by the expansively warm, quick, and lyrical Diane Cluck. Thru the workshop, as a group, we co-wrote and sung 3 songs. It was a really magical and wonderful experience. To have met with a group of strangers and produced 3 songs in a matter of hours just felt very liberating and enthusing." - Z. in London, UK
"I've found it increasingly easier to be vulnerable with my voice and to sing aloud. This has lead me to sing more for and with friends in recent months." - J. in Providence, RI
"I took part and it actually changed my life - I went from not having written any music since my teenage years (when I had no fear!) to composing a few songs using some of the techniques you shared (collaborating with myself, I guess!), one of which I submitted to a Musical Theatre development scheme - and I was selected to workshop my musical at a University here in the UK next February!..it wouldn't have happened without your workshop. Thank you!" - E. in London, UK
"I really appreciated the fact that the class consisted of all varying degrees and levels of musicality. I don't think I would have gotten as much (out of it) had all been a group of professionals or novices, etc. The diversity helped to alleviate self-consciousness and also offered perspectives I would have not otherwise seen." - M. in Albuquerque, NM
