THE VOCAL DOJO・ボーカル道場

 

About

 
 

Mission

To provide a holistic and sustainable vocal technique that empowers the individual in their creativity, vocation, and/or overall health and wellness.


WHY A DOJO?

I grew up doing a lot of judo, namely because I lived a 2 minute walk from the only judo dojo in the town I grew up in, but also because my father was an avid practitioner and thought it would be a good skill, sport and way to keep me and my brother occupied as kids.

Dojo ( どうじょう - 道場) in Japanese literally means “place of the way”. I wanted to take all the skills I have learned over the years as an athlete, judoka, singer, musician, student of various languages, reiki, Alexander Technique, acting and mash them together in a place where I could help others find their way through using their voice, be it music, song, public speaking, acting, vocal hygiene or simply building more confidence. Our voice is so deeply connected to our emotional state, to our mind, to our body, and essentially to our breath. It lives inside us yet we cannot see it.

At the Vocal Dojo I strive to find a holistic approach, tailored to the individual student to empower them to reach their vocal goals. This is a place where you can play, explore, make mistakes, get messy learn and free the voice through music - opera, classical, pop, rock, folk - body awareness, breath, and healing.

Join me! Let’s play, and together we can help you find your way! You can find me on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter or email me here → thevocaldojo.ca@gmail.com
