Rebekka Goldsmith

I lead a community choir through a Seattle based organization called, Path with Art. We had some summer fun learning and recording this song written by Path With Art's Michael Dare called, "You Don't Need a Quarter."

A BRIEF INTRODUCTION

I  facilitate vocal improvisation and other voice related workshops as a practice for developing personal intuition, creative capacity and music skills. I offer a variety of beginner through advanced programs and lessons that explore melody, harmony, counterpoint, personal language, storytelling and rhythm as a means to deepen the connection between what you know and what you feel. I facilitate experiential multi-art based empowerment workshops and retreats for youth and adults throughout the United States and Canada. I lead professional development programs for managers, supervisors and executives, and I consult with intact teams to support improved team dynamics. 


I hold a theater degree from Rutgers University, and certification through Rhiannon’s yearlong All the Way In master vocal improvisation program. I am a Level III certified instructor of Somatic Voicework, The LoVetri Method (TM).  I attended the Heart of Facilitation training program and I am working towards a certification in coaching from the International Coaching Federation. I live my values-growth, love, and racial and social justice. I actively seek ways to build in equitable practices in my own programming as well as continuing my life long work to understand my own biases and privilege. Oh, and I love to laugh and play!  And dance. Yes, dancing is good.  Of course I love to sing too...but you probably already guessed that one.
