Meet Irene Feher
I sing, I improvise, I thrive on inspiring others to have a fulfilled musical life. If you have always wanted to sing and/or play, or you want to rekindle the love that brought you to singing and/or playing music in the first place - then I can help you open that pathway. If you are a singer looking for vocal freedom, I can help you.
Whether we are in a voice lesson, voice class, or improvisation workshop, it is a mutual collaboration. I am there to listen and guide you towards finding your vocal/musical freedom. I encourage instrumentalists to sing because your voice is the most powerful connection you have to your musical ideas.
I ask you to:
Learn from a place of love and curiosity, NOT fear and self-doubt.
Trust the process and know that you have the ability to become fully engaged in your personal practice and collaboration with others.
Become a compassionate, accepting and open lifelong learner.
Value yourself and the experiences that make you who you are.
Sing/play with heart and authenticity.
Tell a story worth telling.
