What People Are Saying:
“The class allowed me to be free with the expression of my voice. Typically when you sing, you learn a song and stay with how it is sung. With vocal improv I could sing as it went and do what I wanted to the song in my own way. It was very rich and fulfilling to allow myself the vulnerability to open up and sing from my heart. This was always something I wasn’t comfortable doing in public or in a group but I quickly realized I could and it was good. I am more confident and because of this I allow my voice to flow and improvise as I go! Natasha has a way of making each participant feel valued and passionate about music. She took the time to allow each one of us to explore our own likes and what we felt comfortable with.”
