A lovely message I just received to pass on to you all ###x

Dear Australian friends,

with deep sorrow and fear we have been watching the devastating fires in your country. What a loss, what a struggle! We just want to let you know that we think of you and hold in our hearts the memory of the gorgeous landscapes and animals that we saw. We pray for an end of fire, for rain, for the perseverance of the many people who are fighting against the flames and for the souls that have already died, and for your wellbeing.
Hoping that you are safe!

With love and hope,
Belle, Anja, BZ, Ron and Shaynee

Singing is the birthright of each human being. Whether we sing in the shower, in a choir or with a band: Singing is a joyful way to connect with our creativity and our power. And when shared with others, it creates moments of resonance and community that can touch the soul.

08/11/2018

Why are we bringing the Tuscany Project to Australia? I first heard about the Tuscany Project 27 years ago when I lived in New York City and was studying Architecture at Parsons School of Design. Ahh! to sing in Tuscany - sounded like a dream. 27 years later I finally made it to Italy in June/July 2018 and was blown away.

I had taken the opportunity in 2011 to go to Nelson in New Zealand and there met life long friends - a tribe who got me, we laughed, sung, and learnt so much about ourselves and each other. BZ and Ron coached us through our individual songs and we practiced further with our partners. Was it just me - I couldn't stop crying - physically my body was opening up and all this blocked emotion was being released - my love for singing and also being so touched by the insights and growth of the other students as right before my eyes they transformed.

When I came back I sang, did gigs in wineries, weddings etc it was great to just sing, and I was amazed how less afraid I was of being in public - I enjoyed the music and the story instead of worrying about 'being perfect'.

7 years later ....Italy did not disappoint - under the care and guidance of Belle, Anja, Shaynee and Ron it was such a beautiful welcoming. (the airline lost my bag - but I just didn't care) My song chosen, my roommates ensconced - let the work begin. I woke to a dip in the pool and then - breakfast and movement! Light Yoga stretching and awakening. Then split groups enjoying further bodywork or went to work on their songs. Group singing always amazes me how a connected group of people sound so much sweeter !

I'm blown away by the talent around me - people are definitely at all levels of experience - professional to never performed in public. Yet each of us is working on something and I am amazed at how accurately Anja, Belle and Ron can jump right into where we are at and what we are struggling with - and with each breakthrough another barrier to self expression falls -

So within 48 hours I am walking taller, laughing louder, and singing from the heart and this time not so many tears, just an awareness of how precious this gift to myself is - time to sing, time to be with my 'tribe' people who get me, and being with people who had me at their first note! (especially if it was a little blue!)

I left with a promise - that Tuscany Down Under in January 2019 would happen .... and it is!

Why am I working to bring the Tuscany Project to Australia? Because I love the education these masterful teachers have molded over 27 years. Australia can often feel so far away - but it really isn't anymore and I want as many people to experience the Project as possible. Singers need to sing!!! Its simple.

This is a Project that gets results, it jumps right in un apologetically to what matters - authentic communication through performance from you to others and from others to you.
It transcends music .....

I'll drink to that !

Let me know how I can help you join us - with love and song

The dream that became The Tuscany Project.

Over twenty years ago, four friends combined their skills as musicians, singers, actors and teachers to create an annual artistic retreat. Their dream was to create an environment where individuals could experience the power of the human voice as a celebration of the human spirit. This dream came out of their common belief that music, and particularly singing supported by a community of like-minded Individuals inspires and transforms lives.

They imagined a place where once a year individuals from every walk of life, of any age and musical experience level, could step out of their daily life and into a paradise where artistic freedom and musical exploration are encouraged and nurtured.Participants come together in a supportive environment where the group and the individual's process are respected. The work we do is not about competition; it is about celebrating each participant's own unique voice in a vibrant, international community of singers and teachers. For 26 years, we have had the joy of meeting and working with people of all ages, nationalities and skill levels. Make yourself and your voice a priority and join us!
