Reviews and Feedback

"I loved the workshop, everything was great! It was really interesting to reflect on music in another way, and I feel like I understand a bit more about classical music. I loved getting to share our thoughts [and] different takeaways. I also really liked learning [the] history...it makes it feel more real."

"This was my second time attending a workshop by Kayla, and each time I come away with something to think about. It was my first time attending a workshop like this, but it was a great experience. As someone with no musical or theatre experience, I definitely felt the resistance as I started, but I'm pleased I pushed through. Kayla gave a lot of interesting input both during and at the end of the session. It was interesting to play around with space, voice, and energy - something which I rarely do.

"I participated in Kayla Collingwood's workshop "La Voix Incarnée//The Embodied Voice" and it was a great experience. The workshop is very helpful to overcome insecurities and shyness and increase your confidence, either to be centre stage or any type of public speaking. I highly recommend it.

Interested in a 1:1 session?

I offer online and in-person classical music immersion sessions, where you can discover the works, composers, and history of classical music in an interactive way, and learn how to integrate classical music into your daily life. You can select a general overview of classical music, or we can look at specific topics/works/composers of interest.
