Nomy helped me to find softness around my vocal practice. I absolutely love working with her. My body changes after every lesson. At first it was difficult, because it's not a normal voice lesson. There's something beautiful and spiritual about working with Nomy. In time, I felt myself loosen with Nomy's loving gaze and encouraging words and energy. It's not just a voice lesson, it's a way to open creatively to the energy of the universe.
When I first started working with Nomy as a coach, I felt completely, totally, absolutely stuck. Writing was my passion, but I hadn't finished a creative writing project in thirteen years, and I worried that I just didn't have anything to say anymore. I used to be a musician, but I hadn't sung outside of the shower in even longer. I felt like a failure, and simultaneously like there was all this creative energy jamming up inside me and that I was stupid for ever thinking I had anything worthwhile to share with the world. Nomy has been an amazing, transformative teacher for me. I have never met anyone so skilled at simultaneously building a safe, nurturing environment for scared students to work in, and subtly pushing students out of their comfort zones, to share things they've never shared before. She reminded me that making something meaningful should be play, and not just work. Thanks to her, I'm unstuck--I've started to work on my first actual, sustained writing project in a long time, and I've even started to sing in public again. If you get a chance, you should definitely work with her.
Nomy has been a fantastic vocal coach for me. I sing in a high energy punk band and was losing my voice consistently. Several years ago Nomy taught me how to *actually* find my diaphragm and sing using my breath rather than my throat muscles. This was a complete game changer and now I use exercises we worked on together every single time I perform. Nomy's brilliant, adaptable and super intuitive.
Nomy creates such a loving and accepting space to explore voice and expression of creativity. Through our work together, my vocal range has expanded, my understanding of creating sound and music has grown, I've gained confidence in my abilities and more love for the art of creating sound, and I've had so much fun! If you've ever wanted to explore singing, creative expression or yourself as an artist, I strongly recommend sessions with Nomy!
Singing lessons with Nomy are fun, casual, professional, and engaging. If you are nervous about singing, Nomy creates a very safe atmosphere to belt it out and find your tone. I am a trans woman, and have always been anxious about my voice. If you are a transgender person who is interested in learning to sing in a safe environment, do give Nomy a call.
