Sing, sound, and speak your truth with more confidence. When you free your voice, the rest will follow. Your life becomes more aligned with your values. This might mean you quit your job, end a relationship, pursue a passion, go into the unknown. The old you is falling away, and the new you has opinions and things to say, purr, shout, sing, roar. It’s scary and exhilarating. Let’s do it!
Free Your Voice: Initiation through toning, chanting, spirit songs, sound meditations, improv performance, vocal expressive arts, and more! From the sacred to the silly, open in ways you’ve never imagined and make long-lasting shifts in your life. Joy, play, community, transformation!
Free Your Voice: Chakra Tuning through breath and sound meditations, group singing and chanting, 4 part harmony, expressive arts and drama therapy to explore the psychological dimensions of each chakra, play, improvisation, and more. Get aligned and shine your light!
Free Your Voice: Harmonize through songs in 4 part harmony in the oral tradition. Learn songs from Brazil, Nigeria, the Central African rainforest, and spirituals, gospel, and Civil Rights songs from the African American tradition. Expressive arts, drama therapy, and community improv exercises help you look at you in relation to others.
Free Your Voice while Drumming: Drum and sing at the same time as well as accompany others and improvise. You will learn how to open and close rhythms (Middle Eastern trance style of drumming). You will also learn West African polyrhythms and 3 part harmony songs and feel how all these parts make up a beautiful whole. Lots of drum and voice play, improv, jamming, expressive arts, and more.

“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
“They break down rhythm in a way that makes it incredibly tangible for a total beginner to percussion. And then they teach you to integrate your voice while drumming! An awesome teacher.” –Jai Singh, Free Your Voice 1, 2 and drumming 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
“Amber is a superb teacher. Their classes are both structured and fluid; the container is always safe. They have a broad range of skills, talents and knowledge that they bring to their teaching. This means that each session — individual or group — is exciting, so we can push our edge but also familiar, so we can stay grounded. I enthusiastically endorse Amber.”–Kaethe W, private and group student
“Amber’s class – Free Your Voice while Drumming – was outstanding. Amber is a superb teacher who makes learning drum polyrhythms accessible and fun. Our class became tight after just a few classes together, and we found ourselves doing things we didn’t think possible (and we’re not all musicians or singers – this is due to the way Amber sets up the songs and rhythms with varying levels of challenge, and always encourages us with heart and a smile). It’s more than just the rhythms, the forming of a meaningful group in a short time – it’s really a magical experience that has liberated new possibilities in my music and my being.” Lisa F, Free Your Voice while Drumming student
