Stay connected. A very important goal of this course is to develop alliances and projects that could continue after the completion of these sessions. Between sessions there will be assignments and periodic check-ins through conference calls, blogging and emails. 

Rhiannon will have two “co-pilots”, senior students of her work, who are also strong teachers in their own realms, to participate and collaborate with her and with you. They will be part of all the sessions, bringing special qualities that you will find very helpful and inspiring.

All The Way In 2023 - An Invitation from Rhiannon 

Rhiannon is excited to announce the 13th year of her mastery level program. We invite you to join Rhiannon for All The Way 2023. In a course taught as a series of two long sessions, a total of 21 full teaching days, 6 hours per day, held in two beautiful locations during the year. Each session location is chosen for the creative powers of the community there and the natural beauty of the place, both of which contribute mightily to our study.  We will take a deep dive into the treasure of vocal improvisation. The place, the songs, the invention of each day, the need to be flexible and trusting, the circle of singers, the meeting and parting during the year with time in between to integrate and study - all of this contributes to life-changing musical growth. You can count on it. 

This course is for 16 to 20 advanced singers with a deep and daily commitment to their voices, musical lives and to building community with song. Students must be committed to the whole series. Singers will be able to develop strong relationships with one another and with Rhiannon, as well as having the assurance that each session will reach further into the skills and spirit of improvisation. Admission is by permission from Rhiannon.

Would I recommend ATWI? Totally. Rhiannon is a masterful teacher and has created a program that takes singers to a whole other level. ATWI demands a lot in terms of vocal skills, but also openness…  lack of ego… willingness to risk... to drop what you think you know and be awake to what is happening in the moment…. to let go of expectations of how you think things should go…. to support and be supported, to be generous and accepting of yourself and others. To really listen… to be vulnerable… to go for it!   It's a deep dive vocally and personally and whatever is happening in your life at the time may very well be part of it!  I decided to revisit ATWI in 2017 after decades of study with Rhiannon, and even then I found it pushed me in unexpected ways because of what was going on in my life.   What a great opportunity to grow, and see what happens when you bring your whole self to your singing. To stretch vocally and personally and to do that with a committed group of singers, all on the same journey together.  Rhiannon guides this process with so much wisdom and musical depth. She models the power of improvisation in her teaching, in her words, in her connection to the sacred, and especially in her  vocal artistry. She really embodies it. Even the different the locations she has chosen— each offering their own special magic. How exciting to explore the world together, making heartfelt connections with singers who will feel like your people, your tribe.  There is nothing like it, really.      ~Laurel Murphy, participant and co-pilot 

TESTIMONIALS

ALL THE WAY IN has been a major landmark in my learning about this craft called improvisational singing. The sharing of knowledge, tools and unique perspectives by the participants is a valuable adjunct to the course materials themselves. I have made lifelong friends with whom I am sure to collaborate, in the future. I highly recommend this course to anyone who is serious about vocal improvisation. – Emile Hassan Dyer, Los Angeles CA 

Rhiannon can so easily and lovingly bring me to my edges - that wonderful place that I sometimes dare not go - in music making and living. ATWI was a supportive, challenging, wonderful group experience where I felt myself grow stronger in myself, and felt my voice seek out and explore new territory too. At 
the end of these three weeks I have returned home to life and work as a music educator with a renewed commitment to music, deeper attention to my own process, the continuing support of my ATWI colleagues, and a feeling of “new beginnings”. THANKS from me and all the people I live and work with!!! 

– Becky Graber, Brattleboro VT 

So many times as a singer, as a seeker, I have felt alone. ALL THE WAY IN brought me into a circle of singers whose styles might vary from mine, but whose soul songs resonated and opened my heart and voice in ways I could not have imagined! Rhiannon’s open and steady guidance allowed us all to venture into new territory and come back shining with new ideas and deeper groundings in fundamentals. The journey has just begun. I am so grateful to Rhiannon for creating and improvising and holding the sacred space that ATWI is...  – Patti Schaffner, Gary IN 

Watching Rhiannon is watching a true Master. She inspires with an amazing, clear and heartfelt ability to bring out the best in everyone. It is a great honor to learn from her. 
– Sabrina Fox, München, Germany 

Your spirit, soul and way of honoring and treating music is world changing. It has a strong effect in the music itself but it also clears the spirit, which gives the soul an opportunity to speak from an honest place.  – Ulla Britt, Denmark 

What has remained so powerfully with me since doing the ALL THE WAY work is the body memory the workshops created within me. The work continues to live in my bones; the techniques get grounded to your creative source, you will never lose them, even if they get rusty from time to time. Rhiannon has really tapped into something essentially human and exceptional in this training. Writing is the place where I do my creative reckoning, where at times I feel I am engaged in a wrestling match, but for me, music, and particularly singing is the great exaltation, the exhale, the wail -- the beckoning, the balm. I have always wanted to incorporate music into my plays without them becoming musicals and the ALL THE WAY work has created an amazing foundation and trust in the voice and shown me how song can be linked to play text so that difficult stories can be truly heard, and therefore felt by an audience. – Denise Kumani Gantt, Seattle,W
