Learning How to Befriend Your Voice

“Rose Diamond’s warm tones, voice modulation, and breathing tips create a kind of trance in me during my lessons. The relaxation and breathing allow me to create a quality of sound and reach notes that I never dreamed possible.”

“Rose’s work with me is about how true communication begins with my
whole-hearted, unified intention, breath and sound. With each breath I
take, I have learned that I may free my voice [by allowing] the flow of my breath to express the ecstatic joy of being alive. She has helped me to re-connect with my essence.”

“How less cumbersome is my voice now and my need to return to its use as primary in reclaiming of self I am engaged in; how crucial to this particular journey is lightening the load.”

“I have taken only a handful of lessons over the past year whenever I
could with Rose. For the first time in years I have not ‘lost my voice’ during the winter months in the classroom. I am happy to have my speaking health back for the first time since early childhood.”

“The fact that I am actually singing after so many years of fearful
silence amazes and excites me. For this I am grateful.”

“Hello Augusta Rose,
I am in my studio today listening to your CD….which has the words “when what I am refuses what I was…” I bought it at the holiday sale and listened to it constantly during my week driving around in the Berkshire/Hudson Valley area where I was observing at the Hawthorne Valley
school. I listened to your incredible voice and incredible music as I drove the narrow winding roads of that area. It has echoed the depth and beauty of this time of year. Thank you for sharing your amazing heart filled songs…beautiful musicianship all around.” – Emily and John
