I have been gifted by students both past and present connecting and telling me about the creative waves they are making and how VoiceWorks was part of that momentum. A wave is a momentum to move forward and reach another shore….And so the waves are rolling in….I am deeply touched and rewarded by the joy and passion of these students. It puts a big smile on my face and in my heart.
The following are examples, pictures and links to just some of the creative works of the students of SoundBody Studio over the past year:
Since performing in Sound is a Wave last November Elizabeth has committed to studying with Maureen Washington …and now….she’s officially jazz singer!!! Elizabeth is going to Cuba with her piano man to perform in February.

Jess and friend/pianist Josie Martens coordinated a Kickstarter campaign to do a 10 day Living Room Concert Tour in Victoria and the Gulf Islands in November. They raised the needed funds and put on…it was so sweet to be there! The songs Jess chose to honor her dad were a wonderful mix of music from Nina Simone to Sarah McLachlan. I rediscovered Josie, whose piano accompaniment was sensitive and very accomplished.
