Dot’s Favorite Empowering Quote
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our Light, not our Darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you NOT to be?...your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightening about shrinking so that other people won't feel unsure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory...that is within us. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone. As we let our own Light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

These exciting workshops are built on the CORE Vocal Power® method, and designed to set you on an individualized journey that will give you all the keys (Mind, Soul & Body) to be in “the zone” and deliver powerful vocals when performing anywhere. Part II of the curriculum will give you experiential learning opportunities that will prepare you to be a skilled professional, not a hit and miss amateur. Learn to deliver quality vocals on cue.
Classes address the psychology (mind), the physiology (soul), and the physical (body) make-up of your vocal identity, which means you will begin to understand how to tap into your "sweet spot" or what Dot terms, your "CORE VOICE." The CORE VOICE is where all three of these areas collide to help you unleash your true voice and gain that extra edge and authenticity that immediately sets you apart from everyone else.
In addition, this workshop is intended to facilitate a personal break through, giving you an actual experience behind the mic where you feel first-hand what it means to “turn it on” and deliver powerful vocals. There will be a performance held at the end of the two part series.
In summary, you will embark on a unique journey that will highlight your strengths, identify your weaknesses, provide tools to help you along the way, challenge you to make breakthroughs, and ultimately transcend your preconceived abilities. Exit the workshop with CORE Vocal Power tools and gain benefits in your personal and professional goals.

Who is the workshop for?
Any qualifying person age 14 and up*, and is committed to becoming their personal best at vocal expression and performance. Anyone who might struggle with fear of hitting the wrong note under pressure and who wants to take their voice to a new level of power and authenticity.
This workshop is filled with intensive information that will enrich your understanding of the voice, but it is structured to challenge and demand the best from you. Because of this, we are really only recommending this workshop to those of you who are committed and willing to invest time into your growth.
Of course, everyone wants to grow and be better, be bolder, and be empowered but few are willing to do the work that is required to arrive there. This workshop will work you in a creative and productive way; hence, the word “work-shop.” However, there will be plenty of laughter, joy, and optimism to charge and uplift you along the way. If you are committed to your own growth, if you want to be challenged and have new experiences, and if you want to make a vocal break through then this workshop has been tailor-made for you.
