Feedback from a previous “Uke Can Free your Voice” workshop.

Before Ruby’s singing workshop I had wanted to explore my voice, as another musical instrument.The exercises, the tips, the gentle teaching led me to try it all the next day.  Suddenly I felt my voice had changed, that I enjoyed singing and listening to my own voice, like exploring new territory.  I highly recommend this workshop to anyone who wants to “find their voice” in a supportive, gentle way.”    J.H.
