Music of the Heart

Music of the Heart

An interactive, inward musical journey, combining deep listening, somatic inquiry, and meditative sound.

There is a Music of the Heart: a subtle, ever changing tapestry of feelings, emotions, and desires flowing through our inner world, that is often drowned out by the hubbub of everyday life. The intention of Music of the Heart (MOTH) is to explore simple breath and sounding practices that can help tune our ears to this more subtle music within. Guided by the feelings and sensations that arise as we listen and sing, we discover how music and breath can serve as a craft to travel through the realms of the subconscious and the unconscious.

Music (including toning and breath) is a language beyond words. Just as our feelings and emotions often defy definition, music offers us a special place to experience and express this inner world without the need to explain or label it. Throughout our existence, we humans have used music to help us celebrate, to help us grieve, to help us love.

Frequently asked questions...

Is this a concert, a class, or a sharing circle? Will I be listening or participating?

All of the above! Part of the inspiration for Music of the Heart originally grew from my desire to bridge the gap between audience and performer, to draw people into the rich and wondrous world I experience when I play. The tools provided in these classes all can help to provide you with a deeper experience of both listening to, and creating music.  But ultimately, the overarching intention is to open a space where you can listen more deeply to yourself.  

Do I need to be a musician or singer to attend these sessions? What if I’m afraid to use my voice?

No experience, musical or otherwise, is required. Throughout the experience, If you are hesitant or nervous about using your voice, I will be right there for you to lean on, gently leading you on a journey of sound and breath, to places you may never have known you could go!  MOTH is designed to be a very safe and nurturing place to explore one’s relationship to making sound, and the profound effects we can have on our own system simply by breathing and singing.
