Listen to Ev here.


Hear your voice, hear yourself.  Sonica Vocé  is for those who long to sing, who have been told to keep quiet or who are curious about their own blockages.  Sonica Vocé is for personal healing, growth and positive change – whether for yourself or for others who may hear you. These are not singing lessons.  Private and group sessions are available.


Private sound journey sessions are recommended for a client who would like to drop down into an inner journey while being supported by live soundscapes.


Facilitation of group sonic journeys, drumming and soundscapes is available to groups for specific events, such as yoga relaxation, ceremonies for retreats, workshops, wellness seminars or other community building opportunities.

Ev fashioned a “Soundwork as Soulwork” philosophy into her practice as a result of studying with Gary Diggins, Ann-Marie Boudreau and David Darling – Music for People. She has been influenced by the teachings of Gerald J. JudChloe Goodchild, Kay Gardner, Laurel E. Keyes, Karina Schelde,  and Laurel Murphy.
