Claim your birthright, and step into the joy of singing! Whether you’re a “non-singer” who wishes you could sing, or a more experienced singer who would like to delve deeper into the magic of your own voice, this weekend retreat/workshop is for you!

  • If you can talk you can sing! — yes, EVEN YOU!!

  • Learn in a way that’s supportive, comfortable & fun

  • Discover or re-discover your unique voice

  • Feel the sound of your own voice in a whole new way

  • Experience the profound joy of singing in a supportive group

  • Become more confident – experience some singing success!

  • Empower yourself by doing things you didn’t think you could!

  • Take home new skills & tools to continue the journey!

“I really surprised myself, in many ways. I had a wonderful time and came away with more confidence than I felt possible!”
– A Workshop Participant

Through a combination of games, improvisation and simple songs from around the world we’ll explore different aspects of the voice.

Did you know that adults & teens can learn to sing in much the same way a child learns language — through immersion and play?! 

In that spirit, we’ll…

  • Create a space of non-judgement, and replace the “cringe,” with curiosity!

  • Make all kinds of crazy sounds and noises — just to discover what we’ve got!

  • Learn to listen differently and more deeply.

  • Discover the profound joy of boldly singing with other people!

  • Dig into different learning styles, discovering YOUR best inroads to music learning.

  • Discuss the basics of music theory, so you’ll understand more about how songs work.

  • Sing familiar songs and learn new ones!

We’ll create a tool kit of accessible techniques for you to take home and use as you develop your skills. Discover the joy of your unique voice and let go of that old idea that singing isn’t for you!

“Nancy has helped me along the journey of bringing what I hear inside my head into the world. She brings a patience and a kindness to her process that focuses on joy and emphasizes the pleasure of singing. She has helped me replace my perceptions of singing failure with success, and anxiety with relaxation.”
– Chris, Singing Student

Built-In Relaxation Time…

  • Take a walk around town or in the county

  • Do a little drawing or artwork (I’ll bring some supplies)

  • Check out the groovy local coffee shop, and other shops in town

  • Sing around the campfire if weather allows

We want you to leave this workshop, inspired, relaxed and refreshed!

“Nancy seems to have an endless basket of teaching tools and they were all enjoyable. I especially liked moving, scatting and adding rhythm-making to our singing.”
– Workshop Participant

About the Hallelujah Farms Retreat Center…

Hallelujah Farm Retreat Center is set in the wooded hills of Chesterfield, New Hampshire. Nestled into the southwest corner of New Hampshire, the retreat center offers rooms to sleep up to twenty people, a stunning chapel and meditation space, a peaceful sun filled dining room, and expansive rural grounds. The farms are beautifully renovated 18th century buildings. They retain all of the history and farmhouse charm while the updates bring comfort and modern conveniences.

Along with the use of the physical spaces, they prepare delicious, locally grown, vegetarian meals with gluten and dairy-free options.”

Located between two great towns…

…Brattleboro, Vermont and Keene, New Hampshire…

If Hallelujah farms lodging has filled up before you register for the weekend, check out hotels and B&Bs in Brattleboro and Keene. If you are able to book in a little extra time, you’ll enjoy visiting both of these towns.

Take the train to Brattleboro and we’ll come fetch you!

There is an Amtrak train stop right in Brattleboro — if you’re traveling by train we’ll be happy to pick you up and bring you to the workshop on Friday, and bring you back to the train on Sunday!
