  • No judgements. Iris is here to help you make a sound that you have never made and she has never heard.
  •  Iris will allow you to make all kinds of sounds. Some will be strange, loud and often ugly.  That's okay. If you only make beautiful sounds you will never discover the speaker or singer you could become.
  • Iris focuses on three variables to improve your vocal health; pitch, intensity and the vowel. The right combination will produce a heathy voice. A healthy voice is a beautiful voice.
  • Iris believes the voice is a physical instrument which responds to movement.  Experience the joy and freedom of movement while making incredible sounds.
