SAHFFI'S STORY: 


I started my musical life as a French horn player,
 and I didn't start singing until I was in my early 20's. 
Therefore, I see my body as an instrument, 
AND I know how scary it is to use and find your voice! 

To find your own authentic, divine singing and speaking voice, 
you need to start by understanding how to play your body as an instrument.

To help with this, I came up with my own method of teaching, called the "Vocal Ladder." 



My "Vocal Ladder" method of teaching voice has helped my students 
over the past 7 years uncover and rediscover their authentic, 
divine voice by understanding how to use their body as an instrument 
and how singing can encourage our growth and healing.

Each rung of the "Vocal Ladder" aligns with one of the major 7 chakras of the body.
We'll explore how singing can move energy for emotional healing,
and how you can use this method to speak and sing your truth clearly from your heart.

 I am always excited to share the joy of singing with those who have never sung, 
or think they "can't" sing, or who those who "always wanted to sing." 

Using our voice is our divine right, I am here to help you connect to that joy again!

I also offer a "Vocal Ladder" workshop for groups. 
Please contact me to discuss specific details for your group or venue.

Please reach out with any questions on the "Contact" page,
I look forward to working with you soon to "Vocalize Your Soul."

Love,
Sahffi

WHAT SAHFFI'S STUDENTS SAY:


"Sahffi Lynne is amazing! She is helping me overcome a lifelong fear and block around singing. It's enjoyable and fun and she's a genius at the craft of helping you to sing." - Tim M., voice student

"Highest recommendation for Sahffi Lynne and her profound singing lessons! What a joy it was to learn about the art of making sound and truly understanding all the different movements we make with our body. I really loved and appreciated how Sahffi incorporated the chakras into the importance of climbing up the vocal ladder." - Michael, vocal student

"Just wanted to share something that happened today! I go to this thing we call yoga church (b/c it's on Sundays)! At the end, we sing the same song every week (Long Time Sun) and today I had three people comment on my singing (in a good way--ha)... And one asked, 'are you taking voice lessons?' After just three lessons, I thought that was quite a testament to your teaching and I wanted to share! I could feel the difference, too!" - Beth, voice student

"Sahffi is an amazing vocal coach! She literally helps you understand that your voice is an instrument, just like a flute or a trombone. Her approach takes a lot of the fear and unease out of learning how to make sound and sing from the heart. She helps you open up and teaches the essential fundamentals of an instrument we were all born with. Deep gratitude for your compassion and care Sahffi!"
- Camille Eroy-Reveles MPH, voice student from Kunkawaki Yoga & Music Retreat, 2017

"Sahffi is a talented, fun and loving musician and voice coach. She combines her knowledge of vocal techniques, anatomy and subtle energy in her classes. I highly recommend her to anyone who'd like to work on their vocal abilities, regardless of age and experience." - Isabel, voice student via Skype

"I made more progress in one lesson with Sahffi than in months worth of previous lessons with a different instructor. Cool!" - Robin, voice student via Skype

"It means a lot that you were right with me throughout our lessons, making me feel at ease and swaying along with me. Stage fright was one of the things that kept me away from doing this earlier. Your encouragement built up my confidence enough to go onstage and finally face the crowd."
- Sharon, in a note to Sahffi regarding her vocal coaching sessions 

"Sahffi is a GENIUS at teaching voice. Three lessons with her changed my singing forever!"
- Farida, vocal student

"Sahffi is a natural born teacher. Lessons are enjoyable and productive, and I feel that I've made significant progress with her guidance." - Shannon, voice student

"As a student of Sahffi's I want to give her the highest recommendation possible. I am miles ahead of where I was just after two and a half months of her lessons and she has honed in on everything I needed to change to bring out a voice I never thought I had. She also is super nice." - Michael, voice student 

"You are so inspiring! No one has ever told me I had a nice tone, or a tenor at that. Thanks for being an awesome teacher and making me want to sing more and more! You rock!" - Scott, voice student
