Are You a “Non-Singer” but wish you could sing?
Welcome! You’re in the right place!

Email Nancy anytime to ask about taking singing lessons!

“I wish I could learn to sing!” Is this you? I can teach you, and it might change your life! Don’t let the outdated idea that you are a “non-singer” stop you from joining in one of the healthiest, most expressive and rewarding activities life has to offer!

• If you can talk you can sing! Yes, EVEN YOU!!
• Learn in a way that’s supportive, comfortable & fun
• Discover your own natural voice
• Become more confident–experience some singing success!
• Take home skills to start you on your way!


We are all born to sing — I believe this with all my heart. People all over the world have sung for as long as there has been language – only relatively recently, with the advent of musical recording, has the birthright of song been relinquished to the professionals.

Do you have a story? Perhaps there’s a reason why you’re afraid to sing. Many people who think they can’t sing have had some kind of experience that shut them down (a criticism at an early age, a sense that someone else was the “the singer” in the family, an insensitive music teacher!) and this negative experience has gelled into a myth that they have come to see as a truth. Does this sound familiar to you?

So let’s open up the idea of what singing is. Let’s play with sound, and what it’s like to simply make noise together. Let’s talk about what singing means to you and why, and what kind of music interests you. We’ll play games with singing and rhythm, do some toning and rounds as a way of exploring harmony, move and stretch our bodies as we explore making different sounds, and sing simple, accessible songs from different cultures. Finding your voice is both fun and profound!

With life-long certainty I told Nancy I was tone-deaf and within two minutes she had me matching a note she was singing. I was amazed and a little bit giddy!

Thank you so much for the singing lesson. It was something I will never forget and until recently I would never have done that. It’s all about growing. You are doing such great things for others with your gift. Thank you for sharing.

I knew nothing about singing but I have found that I can do this. It feels so good to sing with other humans.

How Do You Know What You Really Sound Like?

Here's a trick to help you know what you really sound like... Not being able to tell how you sound can be a big problem for beginning singers. You don't want to sing loud because you're not sure you're singing the right notes, but without singing loud you can't hear yourself at all — which makes it more likely that you're singing off-key! What do you do...? This little trick really helps... Cup your fingers over the back of your ear and aim the heel of your hand towards your mouth (like the announcer from the show, "Laugh-In" — you have to be old like me to remember that one!). You will be shooting your voice right into your own ear. If you don’t want to sing loud but you’re having [...]
