Teaching & Workshops
In early 2017 I developed and lead my first workshop, "Singing as Embodied Expression & Deep Self-Care". Since then I’ve had the pleasure of bringing singing workshops to sixteen cities across the US, to Montreal, and to several 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.
I currently offer private lessons in singing, songwriting, and basic piano from my studio in Charlottesville, VA. I also offer online sessions via Skype--you can refer to ‘Services’ in the online store or contact me for more info.
As a touring musician I’m happy to host workshops and private lessons along my travel routes. Workshop schedule below. Concert dates + workshops here.

Feedback from Students & Attendees
"All in all, I feel like a stronger singer after this. Dialing into what I admire about my voice, what I dislike about my voice, how important the voice is, and all the while not taking myself too seriously was GOLDEN." - S. in Austin, TX
"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 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
