"what a natural and skillful facilitator you are! Had so much fun at your Femvoice workshop and learned so much (and appreciate not being put on the spot or feeling awkward.) thanks Parissa the night was a joy, and loved being with other fab women. I'll be back . Xxx"
"Fabulous to have you back facilitating singing again Parissa....always a joy to be present in your groups....they are fun, informative and a tonic for the soul."
What does it takes to get up and sing/jam at a party?
What does it take to perform with confidence, professionalism and skill?
What does it take to get your songs ready to record and how is it different to live performance??
fEmpower Voice is my néw group workshop offering. Born out of seeing so many, particularly young women, who would like to join in the jam or get up and perform, but are too shy or lacking skills to try. I’ve even seen young women who can sing a song beautifully come unstuck when trying to improvise with the, mostly, fellas in the band
I can help with that! Jamming and AdLib singing is my favourite pastime It doesn’t only take courage, but skill to hear the music and converse musically. It also takes vocal production techniques to help you get your message across. It takes rhythm, ‘cos it don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that swing…
I’m a fully qualified, very experienced CCM singing teacher, Level III Somatic Voicework TM instructor, as well as being an award winning singer songwriter with 7 albums under my belt, and a music producer
My aim is to empower women, in a safe, supportive sisterhood space, so that you can move forward in all the areas you need to fully achieve your desired self expression, in a small group environment, so it’s more affordable than private lessons. It’s a great way to find your own superpowers!
So, if you know someone who might be interested, please share this with them.
