Singing should be freeing and fun...
It's a pathway to help you connect with yourself in a healthy, healing and magical way. If you've been hiding your voice and feeling afraid to be seen and heard, you're not alone. It can be hard to come out of the "singers closet" even when you really want to let yourself shine.
But the truth is...
Hi, I’m Ruth
Holistic vocal coach, singer, songwriter, pianist, poet
I’m the founder of Vocal Awakening and chief vocal awakener. I came out of the “singer's closet” two decades ago, but I remember all too well how it felt to sit miserably on the sidelines watching others sing the way deep down I knew I was meant to.
Because my own singing journey was hard-won, I felt a deep calling to make it easier for others. For nearly 20 years, it has been my pleasure and privilege to help hundreds of women - including the most shy and musically inexperienced - to discover and fulfill their vocal and artistic potential. I’d love to do the same for you.
It’s not you.
It’s the way we’re taught to think about singing.
If you got the message that you’re not a good or “real” singer unless you sound, look or act a certain way, then no wonder you feel uncomfortable, nervous, shy, self-conscious or embarrassed even when singing casually with friends let alone on stage.
But if you’re reading this, you’re tired of letting fear get in the way
and you’re ready to reclaim your voice.
That’s where I come in.
Let’s Get You Singing
Whether you are new to singing, returning to it, performing already or aspiring to - welcome! I can’t wait to meet you and get started.
I want to dip a toe into singing...
