“A penetrating and healing journey into the part of all of us that wants to sing”
Alan Cohen, author, ‘The Dragon Doesn’t Live Here Anymore’
Beyond the Fear of Singing explores the existential gap between ‘performers’ and ‘non-performers’, the healing journey of acceptance and emergence from hiding our voices, and a global grassroots return, both individually and collectively, to appreciation for our natural voice and unique song.
