If I cannot fly, let me sing.

LISA “LITTLEBIRD” GOETTEL

She holds a Bachelors of Music from the conservatory at Miami University in Oxford, OH and has performed throughout the US with dozens of ensembles, choirs and bands. She currently resides in Big Sur, CA.

She served as the Executive Director of the Denver Women’s Chorus in Denver, Colorado for three years and has been on the faculty as a community singing facilitator at Esalen Institute in Big Sur since 2006. Lisa has a private studio of piano and voice students on the Central Coast of California and leads community singing classes, workshops and retreats throughout the US and internationally.

Lisa uses singing as an ancient, natural pathway– an authentic connection with oneself and the world. When joining voices in community the benefits are immeasurably magnified. Singing in community cultivates mindfulness, empathy, receptivity and joy.

Her classes and workshops offer a safe, supported space where singers of all abilities and experience can explore their unique gifts. Her mission is to restore community singing to daily contemporary life– all in service of the universal vision of a thriving and harmonious planet.

I want to sing like birds sing, not worrying about who hears or what they think.
