He has had a long association with the Relaxation Centre, Brisbane conducting public workshops.

Private Voice Coaching Sessions

Private sessions are available for individuals and small groups.  These are very different to traditional “singing lessons” in that they focus more on being able to find your inner voice and being able to sing from the heart.  Once you can do this, technique becomes like an add-on that you can use to be able to play with your voice.

    Sing for Joy Workshop:
    Wasn’t sure what to expect. Very stimulating for my self confidence and self esteem. Learned answers about my childhood affecting my adult life. Thank You!

  2. Sing For Joy Workshop:
    Excellent – I didn’t think about the heart/healing aspect but I know it is much more powerful than just singing to be good at it. The emotional aspect was amazing!

  3. I came to your workshop “Sing Thru Your Bones for Joy” on Saturday and I am amazed at the change in the resonance of my voice. I have been trying to fix these problems for a while and I never knew it would be so easy. Any time it feels a bit rough I just do the exercise to relax the false vocal chords and the ease returns. On Sunday night when I discovered my new voice I was too excited to go to bed! I was wandering around the house singing and playing with tones that I’d never been able to achieve. Whatever was stopping me from singing with my true voice has gone.

    Everybody who sings should do your workshop!

    Thank you to you both. (John Rodriquez & Rhonda Ohlson)

  4. Nurture Yourself Full Day Workshop –
    Thank you John for such a wonderful day yesterday of singing just for the fun and joy of it! And love the photo too. It was beautiful surroundings and you created such a safe and non-threatening environment in which to join in and sing with everyone. Just a great day and sang all the way home to your CD! I look forward to other workshops with you.
    Thanks again
