“I’ve learned so much from Dot, including ... larynx training, muscle training, breathing, and how to be present when I perform. All those things have made me an even more confident singer...I fell in love with my voice again!”
I walked into Dot's studio feeling like I was incapable of realizing my dream of being a singer, and even more incapable of my bigger dream of being a singer with freedom in my heart, body, mind, and soul. By the time I came to Dot, I hadn't performed in years and I couldn't even call myself a singer out loud. After the first time I sang for her, I cried because it was very difficult for me - painful, actually. My issues, although certainly I had plenty of room to grow technically speaking, were mostly emotional blocks. I couldn't even really begin to work on technique when I was terrified to even let my voice be heard. Three months later, and I'm recognizing that I do have talent and I do have what it takes. I now believe in me, and that's getting stronger every day. I am already so much different than when I started, it's unreal and I'm so grateful. Dot has offered me the tools and the path to overcoming my obstacles, and being the person I was meant to be - my true self. It is not easy - I practice daily, incorporate all the tools she gives me, walk through fear, and I show up, but it is more than possible! Dot's methods and intuitiveness for what I need to grow have been spot on, and I have come far as a result. Thank you, Dot!
