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
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.
