Hi! I'm Chelsea...
Artist. Composer. Vocal Coach. Mentor. Creative Engineer. Pursuer of Truth.
you can read more about my qualifications here... but first, here's some context:
I believe that music is a way to express truth.
Sharing that authenticity – with sound: songs, beats, melodies, rhythms, textures, dissonance, and harmony -- can deepen our experiences and relationships. It can enrich our emotional landscape. It is a vehicle for expression. A tool to process emotion and transform pain into beauty.
Your music can transform lives with the sound of who you are.
I use music as a truth-telling, reality-creating tool in my own art AND I use music as a way to guide others in speaking their truth and finding their voice.
When I’m talking about "finding your voice", I mean that both metaphorically (creatively expressing yourself), and physiologically (the functional, musculoskeletal portion of the instrument). Those two systems work together and are inseparable in healthy expression of sound and emotion. If you’re a new or developing musician, a skilled instrumentalist –or even if you don’t identify as a musician– I can help you develop your sense of self and purpose as an artist through the concept of "voice". I help you with the artistic, metaphoric side so that -whether you're writing music or poetry, plays, or creating soundscapes- you can express yourself deeply, with more freedom. Visual artists, dancers, photographers, filmmakers: you have a voice too.
I also work specifically with the physical (speaking and singing) voice so that you’re able to use it to communicate in a way that feels aligned with who you are. Whether you are giving a presentation, preparing for an interview, writing songs, doing voiceover work, performing in any vocal format - I can help you sound like YOU: the voice you hear and know exists... Your voice IS the sonic representation of who you are.
The goal of my work a teacher/coach/mentor is to help developing and professional creatives cultivate a deeper, more meaningful -and aligned- relationship with their art.
The goal of my work as a musician is to heal and inspire.
My music is my truth.
My voice is who I am.
