What’s it all about?
Most people would rather run naked down the street than have to listen to their own voice on a recording.
“Who is that person?” “I don’t sound like that”. “Why do I sound like a dying cat?” “My voice is so weak”.
Often the voice we hear (our own) isn’t what we would like to sound like. We want to sound more sure of ourselves, caring or confident.
It’s all possible. We can find the path the uncovering our voices, it’s simple and anyone can do it.

Who will be teaching?
Phoebe Deklerk (she/her) is a Melbourne-based singing mindset mentor, having noticed that others around did not see their voices as being beautiful, powerful, touching, strong, assertive and a whole bunch more.
She heard these things in her choirs, parents of students she had taught, and a lot of general conversation about singing and the voice. “We all deserve to feel like our voices are a nice extension of ourselves, not something yucky and intolerable.”
Phoebe loves to inspire others to get into singing and move past the self-consciousness and fear that lingers around singing.
