Vocal Flow: a Circlesinging and Vocal Improv Intensive

May 12 @ 10:30 am 5:30 pm

Embrace your voice and unique creativity!

Facilitated by Onome

This intensive provides a safe and fun space to practice embodying core principles of spontaneous vocal composition: listening, attunement, courage, self-trust, compassion, dynamics, and the spirit of play. We will focus on the building blocks of vocal improvisation to develop awareness, skills, confidence and cohesion.

I will share the techniques I’ve synthesized from my studies with Bobby McFerrin, Rihannon, Meredith Monk, Música do Círculo, theater improv, folk music, hip-hop freestyle, sound healing, archetypes, chakras, somatic experiencing, and mindfulness practices.

Each participant will have opportunities to create, lead and support improvised songs. You will also learn tools for how to get “unstuck” and maintain the flow of your creativity in any improvisational context.

Open to singers of all backgrounds and experience levels! All that is required is the desire to connect in a welcoming circle of voices. 

You will walk away with a deeper awareness of your creative signature, a greater appreciation for your unique expression, and an increased capacity to connect with your own heart, and the hearts of others through voice.

I recommend that you keep a water bottle handy during the intensive, and wear clothes that allow freedom of movement and breath

Frequently asked questions

Q: I’m not a “singer.” Can I work with you?

A: Absolutely! The goal of our work together is not based on traditional vocal coaching.

The goal is for you to listen to yourself more deeply, move through negative judgment and trust the impulses of your imagination, and revitalize your creative mojo.
