African Dance w/Alice Heller (Aug 3rd) & Rhiannon! Vocal Improvisation Workshops (Aug 12 &13): Register Soon!!!

It is an honor for Third Life Studio to host the amazing inspirational teaching and singing of Rhiannon--coming up on August 12 & 13! Living in Hawaii, she doesn't make it East too often, so this is an incredible opportunity to work with one of the best teachers of vocal improv around. I first heard Rhiannon sing back in the 70's as the lead singer with the women's jazz ensemble Alive! She has sung for years with Bobbi McFerrin and many other such musical luminaries. Although I have yet to personally work with Rhiannon (and am looking forward to this!), I know many people who have--and their praise of her knows no bounds.

There is a workshop on Saturday for more experienced singers, and a "dive into the waters" workshop on Sunday open to everyone. Take a look and see what works best for you, but I do hope you will take advantage of this opportunity and come sing!!! All details are below.

PLEASE HELP BY SHARING THIS EMAIL FAR AND WIDE--we want to make this an incredible experience for Rhiannon, as well as for everyone who comes to sing!

With a full belief in the vibrational, creative power of singing to heal and create change,
