Music, voice work, and artistic expression saved my life.
Before that, I was angry and broken, struggling with gender, sexuality and race wounds. As a queer gender expansive Korean American adoptee, I have struggled to speak my truth, much less sing or make sound. I started a punk band at age 30 and began the lifelong process of freeing my voice and sharing my story. Along the way, I completed a 3-year expressive arts training program at Tamalpa Institute that helped me re-inhabit my body and find home in it. I met many wonderful vocal coaches along the way including Claude Stein, Ysaye Barnwell, Vernon Bush, the Gundecha Brothers, and Bobby McFerrin.
I love learning, and it was a natural progression to share all the tools that helped me free my voice with others. I believe the body holds our deepest wisdom and healing. By learning to trust it and listen, I have been able to express my soul song. I love to create spaces where you can free your own voice. This process is vulnerable, brave, and liberating!
My mission is to transmit the love frequency and inspire others to live and sound their truths. I am here to help you to connect more deeply with yourself and others in a fun, playful, loving, supportive space. Reach out if you want to be free and create a life aligned to your highest joy and creative expression.
In love and freedom, Amber
