Experienced voice teacher Susan Robbins offers weekly, biweekly or occasional lessons

at Third Life Studio. Originally classically trained, her musical path led her into early

music followed by years of exploration of world music styles. Her eclectic musical

career has provided her with a firm understanding of a wide range of vocal styles and

their techniques. 


Exploring your voice is a deeply personal, transformative and joyous journey. Over the

35 years that she has been working with hundreds of singers across the full expanse of

musical genre and experience level, she has developed a varied, eclectic approach to

helping those who love to sing experience their fully empowered expressive self

through a relaxed and open instrument. Together with each student, she creates an

individualized process that integrates mindful kinesthetic and breath awareness, technical understanding, exploring the spectrum of vocal colors, active listening, emotional and presence, and the release of blocks or fears that are restricting a free, heart-motivated expression of your full self through an open channel.
