If you have a need or desire to communicate your truth in a way that feels good, this class is for you! Guided by singer-songwriter and Oakland native, Adrienne Shamszad, you will have the chance to develop and refine vocal techniques that support the empowered and liberated use of your voice.
Each 4-week series is dedicated to learning a new, uplifting song written by Adrienne especially for Sing and Surrender where you will learn a mixture of techniques, warm-ups and melodies that encourage self-love and acceptance, courage and confidence.
Adrienne Shamszad has been performing and teaching for over 2 decades. She is an experienced guide through the complex waters of vocal development and views the process of “learning how to sing” as a path of “learning to be at ease with oneself.” Adrienne has learned Western classical technique from baritone Zachary Gordin and studies traditional Iranian vocal arts with Mahsa Vahdat.
