As the beautiful vignette that is SONG SALON develops, so does the inspiration among my clients. October’s session brought more original works, a piano and vocal duo and one singer even dared to change up which song she performed at the last minute because she wanted to experiment. This is exactly what SONG SALON is for! Try something on… love it, don’t love it. Just be in the moment.

Morgan presents at SONG SALON, September 2014
September’s inaugural session of SONG SALON was unbelievable! A truly wonderful group of singers, willing to share their works-in-progress, vulnerability, artistry, and support for one another.
I’ve decided this is going to be a monthly event at the studio, so get in on it now. Only 8 artists per session.
Comments I received from participants:
“So great having a peer group to hear feedback from.”
“Really nice to share music and support with other artists.”
“You can’t know how much I enjoyed SONG SALON last week– Such a thrill to hear what everyone else is doing. I’ve been high on life ever since!”

Beloved Clients— Something new I’ve created especially for you!
SONG SALON at hp vox + music
When: Wednesday, Septemeber 24, 2014 from 7 to 9 PM
Where: Heather Pierce Vox + Music
Salon: A gathering of people under the roof of an inspiring host, held partly to amuse one another and partly to refine the taste and increase the knowledge of the participants through conversation. (Wikipedia)
My goal with SONG SALON is to create an informal, fun, safe space for you to let go of your stage jitters, and get a little feedback from your peers on songs you’re currently working on in your sessions with me (covers and originals are both welcome). It’s much more relaxed than a nail-biting open mic, yet you’re still putting yourselves and your voices out there, which is part of the process of releasing anxiety around performance. Whether you’ve been onstage a lot or this is your first toe-dip into the water, we can all learn from one another. I love to connect my clients with each other, as no one understands the joys and challenges of vocal development the way you all do!
We’ll sing, commune, and support each other here at the studio. Vino and sparkling water will be provided for your enjoyment. Your performances do not have to be “stage-ready” at all. These are works-in-progress. Come as you are and let’s do this!
10 participants maximum.
Payment + Cancellation Policy:
To confirm your spot in SONG SALON, a full payment of $30.00 is due upfront. Once registered, your payment is non-refundable.
Payment via cash, check, PayPal + credit card are all accepted.
Please note: At this time, SONG SALON is open exclusively to clients of Heather Pierce Vox + Music.

And… It’s the return of the half-hour lesson! You now have the choice of both 30 and 60 minute voice sessions.
30-minute Sessions are great for getting a solid vocal workout in, or focusing intensely on a song, or doing a little bit of both.
60-minute Sessions are a deeper dive and important in preparing for shows, recordings, and really honing in on the inner workings of your instrument.
Get in touch with me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org for current rates + to set up a Skype or in-person session!
Also, be sure to check out SONG SALON, a new performance workshop here at the studio!

“Begin doing what you want to do now. We are not living in eternity. We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand and melting like a snowflake.”
–Francis Bacon, Sr.
“There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique.
And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and (will) be lost.
The world will not have it.
It is not your business to determine how good it is; nor how valuable it is; nor how it compares with your other expressions.
It is your business to keep it yours, clearly and directly, to keep the channel open.
You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work.
You have to keep open and aware directly to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open.
No artist is pleased. there is no satisfaction whatever at any time. there is only a queer, divine dissatisfaction, a blessed unrest that keeps us marching and makes us more alive than the others.”
Homemade Green Iced Tea
Hope your summer is as relaxing and re-energizing as this glass of iced green sun tea I recently brewed.
I’ve definitely been enjoying the sunshiny San Francisco weather, indulging in books, film, seeing live music and getting my inspiration revved up to create new offerings for all of you!
COLLAB‘s Spring session was fabulous– Wonderful singers defying stage fright, getting creative and supporting one another as fellow artists. Check out photos HERE.
Let’s use these longer days to fuel up, find our flow and let our art rise to the surface!
Scenes from COLLAB, Summer + Fall 2012.
Collaboration is a powerful force. It’s how I became a songwriter and it’s what got me onstage. I’m a singer first and foremost. While my instrument sounds good acappella, it does me best when paired with another musician. This is also the case for many of the talented singers I train every week.
Finding a creative cohort/performance partner is nerve wracking and time consuming. Upon my arrival in San Francisco, I dealt with an array of strange Craigslist encounters and had myself transiting all over town to meet up with prospects who never turned out to be the right fit. Funny enough, I met my bandmate in the most obvious place– My vocal coach’s studio.
It was a conversation I had about this very subject with my friend, musical colleague, and piano instructor, Ciara McAllister that led the two of us to create a performance workshop specifically for the clients in our respective studios. COLLAB is a “collaboration lab” and safe space where participants perform live, experiment and grow together as artists with hands-on guidance from Ciara and I. Singers are paired up with pianists to form duos, singer/songwriters share their original songs and singer/pianists work on inspired cover tunes. The finale happens in the form of “COLLAB: the performance”, a live showcase of each artist’s selected musical piece. Sessions ran this past summer and fall for four weeks each and were absolutely incredible!
Words to describe COLLAB: creative, intense, camaraderie, open, supportive, exciting, powerful, magic.
I am thrilled to offer this workshop and be part of such an inspiring group of artists!
See photos of both sessions: SUMMER 2012 + FALL 2012
The SPRING 2013 session of COLLAB runs April 18 – May 10.
Registration is now open!
Hey, cool cucumber!
Yes, YOU CAN PICKLE THAT, but do you know how wonderfully good for you cucumbers really are? As an avid cucumber water drinker, I was happy to learn that:
#1 – Cucumbers are 95% water which means they are majorly hydrating (Hello, SINGERS!)
#2 – The phytochemcials in cucumbers will kill bacteria in your mouth (a.k.a. bad breath). Press a slice to the roof of your mouth for 30 seconds.
#3 – Full of B vitamins and electrolytes, cucumbers can help boost your energy and relieve a headache.
#4- Thanks to their naturally occurring fiber and high water content, cucumbers help the body flush itself of toxins.
#5 – Cucumbers are extremely alkalinizing. Consuming foods that are alkaline help maintain the body’s ideal pH balance.
Bottom line, I feel a difference when I add more cucumber to my diet. My thirst is quenched faster, my skin looks clearer (Yay for natural, non-toxic beauty!), and I definitely notice a healthy energy spike (Especially, if I run a few through my juicer making it a base for some tasty green juice). Slice some into your water glass (or julienne it into your water bottle) and see how you feel!
