Five ways GL Voice works to be a queer-friendly space

The importance of committing to being a welcoming singing space June is Pride month, and this year I wanted to take a moment to acknowledge that while the arts world has long been a place where queer people are out and proud, not every singing space is friendly and/or safe for all. It is something I have witnessed myself and spoken out against, and will always speak up about. I want you […]

My Story

The Whole Story There’s nothing particularly remarkable about my story – I know many people who have experienced versions of the same beginnings.  I share my story here because I think it’s important to talk about the whole story, not just the highlights.

Building Singing Confidence

Confidence is a tricky thing. Confidence doesn’t come easily to everyone and certainly isn’t something that can just spring up inside you overnight. Building confidence, whether in yourself, your singing, or in other domains, takes time, patience, and effort.

Singing in person isn’t high […]

Singing at My Own Wedding

Reconnect With Your Voice

Do you need to reconnect with your voice? Everyone has times when they are feeling a bit down with their singing. Maybe even to the point where you’ve stopped singing entirely.
