Sing Your Heart Out Auckland! A vocal psychotherapy workshop with Dr Diane Austin

19/08/2017 @ 10:00 am - 20/08/2017 @ 4:00 pm

10am – 4pm, 19 – 20 August, 2017

‘Sing Your Heart Out Auckland!’ is an in-depth experience of Vocal Psychotherapy, in a two-day workshop facilitated by Dr Diane Austin, DA, ACMT, LCAT, a New York based Vocal Psychotherapist and Music Therapist.

Through over twenty years’ experience, Diane has researched the power of music to help people move beyond emotional and psychological challenges, to connect with their inner most feelings. Diane particularly noticed the key role of the voice in this process, and established ‘voicework’ as an integral part of the psychological process.

We bring you ‘Sing Your Heart Out, Auckland!’ for the first time in New Zealand! This is a rare opportunity to explore and experience Vocal Psychotherapy with Diane Austin for yourself! 

Dr Diane Austin DA, ACMT, LCAT is the Director of the Music Psychotherapy Centre in New York City where she offers a two-year post-graduate certificate program in Vocal Psychotherapy. Dr Austin has maintained a private practice in music psychotherapy for over 25 years, and teaches in the graduate music therapy department at New York University. She has lectured and taught internationally on the use of the voice in in-depth music psychotherapy and her work has been published in numerous journals and books.


Registration costs $425. There are only 10 seats left, so get in quick!

While in New Zealand, Diane Austin will also be presenting talks at Victoria University and the Music Therapy New Zealand Symposium. Her trip to New Zealand has been made possible through a Lindgren Grant from Music Therapy New Zealand. We also thank Rockshop and KBB Music for the donation of the Backbeat Bar as venue for the workshop
