I was an art major in college…

HELLO FRIENDS… ❤️

I have a story for you…

I was an art major in college. I focussed mostly on sculpture and printmaking, and got plenty of good support from my professors. Then I took a painting class with Professor Neuman — he had a dry sense of humor and some prestige in the art world — we thought he was quirky but we admired him — a lot. Too much, I think now.

Wanna practice the 1-3-5 with me for 3 1/2 minutes…?

Singing or visualizing the 1-3-5 not only anchors us firmly in the key but also provides essential reference points as we embark on the journey of learning new songs. Questions like, “Where does this particular note in the song fall in the context of the 1-3-5?” become powerful tools for visualizing and succeeding as we approach songs.

Word of the Year (2024)

The Word of the Year has become my favorite New Year’s ritual.

I wrote the article below 11(!) years ago when it was still a relatively new discovery for me. You’ll feel my enthusiasm around this practice of choosing a single word to embody the just right energy for moving into the future you desire. The whole process is fun and inspiring, and results in a surprisingly […]

Simple (& Super-Useful) Music Theory Tidbit

This simple idea can change your whole relationship to singing!Using numbers for the notes of the scale helps us easily visualize the notes in relation to each other, and singing just the 1-3-5 from the scale is a great way of anchoring us into the key we’re singing in. Being able to sing or visualize the 1-3-5 also gives us reference points as we learn songs — […]

What People Are Saying —

“I just want to let you know how much I am enjoying the singing lessons. I haven’t had this much pure fun since I was in the third grade. It really is liberating for an old codger like me to just cut loose and make joyful noise like I did back then.”
– Brian, Adult Singing Student

“As a private lesson student with Nancy, with a lot of fear of singing, I found after just one session my confidence grow. I attended a birthday party, and when the candles on the cake were lit, I immediately led the crowd in singing “Happy Birthday”! You have no idea what a big step this was for me!”
– Melanie, Workshop Participant and Private Student

“My mother, Charmian, called me this morning pretty euphoric. She said that she “finally felt free”. That she’d thought all her life that she was only capable of making a croaking sound but, instead, had heard herself sing one high note and one note in the middle that was really a tone. She’s always had fifth chakra issues, sore throats, laryngitis, power speaking, etc. This week, when she goes to her meditation meeting, she’ll join in the ‘oohming’ part for the first time.

She said that the workshop ‘changed her life’ after 94 years of being shut down/out.

This was an enormous breakthrough for her. Your program was so well structured and led with such enthusiasm and joy. Congratulations to you. What a gift for everyone there.” With gratitude,”
– Cathy (Daughter of 94 year old workshop participant!)

“The lessons made me feel a lot more comfortable with my voice, and singing in front of people. Also, I think that I’m better at staying on pitch, and getting the pitch right the first time. Plus lessons were just a lot of fun! I really enjoyed them! Thank you again. Hope to see you next summer!“
– Ruth, Teenage Singing Student

“It surprised me how easy it was most of the time, to let go and just sing and make sounds. One thing I really like about Nancy’s teaching is that she brings a straight forward can-do energy to the group, allowing for fears and nervousness but not focusing on those.”
– Workshop Participant
