Sing, sound, and speak your truth with more confidence and freedom!
The voice is the primary means of communication in human beings. Our voice is an expression of who we are and how we feel. In the tones of a person’s voice you can hear the subtle music of feeling and thought. By transforming and enhancing the way we sound, we transform and enhance the way we perceive our self, and this influences the way others perceive us. By extending the breadth, depth, strength, flexibility and fluidity of the vocal range, you can draw out the full imaginative spectrum of the psyche in sound.
Since 2011, I have helped free thousands of people’s voices through my eclectic Free Your Voice private and group classes. Private sessions and 10-week group courses consist of half sounding practices including sound meditations, expressive arts, drama, improv, play, and community building exercises and half singing practices from around the world. From the sacred to the silly, open in ways you’ve never imagined and make long-lasting shifts in your life. Highly transformational!
I believe everyone can sing. Before words, we expressed our emotions through our songs which consisted of sounds such as cooing, babbling, gibberish, crying, laughing, etc. I enjoy acting as a singing partner who can sing with you, share your load, harmonize, reverberate and echo your feelings.
FREE YOUR VOICE SERIES DESCRIPTIONS:
- Free Your Voice: Initiation is open to all levels including those who are shy, have never sung, feel they can’t sing, have trauma around their voices as well as professional singers and those who love singing and sounding. We create a safe space for everyone in the room to take their voice to the next place. The focus is to free your voice and express yourself without any judgment, inner or outer! Toning, chanting, song, expressive arts, drama, lots of play and improv.
- Free Your Harmony is for people who want to learn songs in 4 part harmony and sing on pitch. This course focuses on songs in the oral tradition from the African diaspora, spirituals, gospel, and civil rights songs and includes expressive arts and drama therapy activities that look at you in relation to others.

“Amber Field’s Free Your Voice Workshop was absolutely astounding. They are incredibly skilled at quietly creating a safe space and gently encouraging people to explore and find their truth, then openly express it. So many times at the end of the class people would voice their delight at being given the space to “play” which, as adults with busy lives, we rarely have. Whether you are a professional singer or have never sung a note in your life you will benefit from this workshop. Sign up NOW!!! You won’t regret it. “–Colleen Browne, group student
“Amber’s class is one of my favorite things I’ve done for myself as an adult. Throughout the ten-week Free Your Voice course, I learned how to be more honest, creative and vulnerable. But mostly it was just *so* much fun.”--Hanna J., group student
“This has helped me outside of class and beyond singing as well…speaking in public, negotiating at work, relating to new and old friends”–Racheli W., private and group student
“Amber held a beautiful, safe, no judgement space for everyone to grow, learn, heal, sing, play, laugh & even cry”–Valerie C, group student
“In ten weeks I feel like I got ten years worth of talk therapy and musical training combined.”–Michael F, group student
