“A safe, friendly and fun space for people at all musical levels to sing and explore their instruments together. The beautiful songs Lisa writes or selects evolve from week to week as we all develop new skills and make our personal contributions.” – Kerstin Lindros
“Singing with Strings & Things is a joyful part of my life. After receiving a random gift of a ukulele, some friends recommended that I go to Lisa Singline for lessons. Having never played an instrument or sung in front of other people, I was unsure and anxious. Lisa is warm, generous and caring and helped me make a start. Strings ‘N Things includes people of different talents and skills but they are a welcoming group. Over the years that I have been part of this group I have seen Lisa introduce a wide variety of songs and guide us through both the playing and singing of them, many with harmonies. The repertoire provides a range of challenges of playing and singing and I can hear how we continue to grow and make wonderful noise. The spirit and heart of Strings ‘N Things is Lisa. From her own compositions to clever transpositions of songs that make them more accessible and suitable for all members of the group. As a wonderful and talented performer in her own right, Lisa is an inspiration to each of us as we move along our own musical journey.” - David Heffer

SINGING AS MEDITATION
Take some time out for yourself to just BE.
In this meditation, Lisa Singline will lead you on a journey using song and sound.
Be gently guided to explore and use your voice or simply allow yourself to bathe in song.
Linger in the silences between songs.
A selection of beautiful sound instruments will be integrated in the session to assist you to deepen in to rest and release.
*With our changing times these sessions are offered online. Please set up a beautiful space safe for yourself to relax and enter into the meditation. Please use headphones so as to optimise the sound quality.
“Having participated in a number of Singing As Meditation classes, I can unequivocally say that Lisa offers a true gift to our community in the form of her beautiful voice, gorgeous choice of songs and expert partnership with her guitar. Through these three things and her divine nature, she shares and encourages sharing of the soul-full voice through song and sound. I went along to my first class with some trepidation knowing that my voice and ears were total beginners, however Lisa enabled me to open to the beauty of my own sound and then to feel the peace and calm within that follows. I feel incredibly uplifted after every class.” – Carey Semple
"Singing as meditation is a new concept Lisa Singline has devised based on many years of facilitating community singing groups. Lisa has always cultivated an awareness of the environment, seasons and the sacred in her groups but in Singing as Meditation she incorporates a conscious meditative process that deepens the experience and leaves an abiding sense of peace. Poetic, melodic, rhythmic, harmonic; the sounds we produce together reverberate through the body, mind and spirit and wash away everyday woes." - Caroline Cara Denigan
VOCAL SOUNDS AND SONG HEALING
Relax, unwind and rest in the experience; be bathed in vocal sounds with song and silence. Allow the vibrations of sound to bring unique healing and wellness. Lisa uses her unique voice, accompanied with a selection of instruments specifically chosen for their healing qualities. These may include Tibetan Singing Bowls, Crystal Singing Bowls, Buffalo Drum, lyre, guitar or Shruti, intuitively to share a mix of original songs, chants and improvisation required in the session.
Sessions are offered in Torquay or via Zoom.
“I went to a sound healing session with Lisa and was transported to a place deep within where there were no thoughts, deep relaxation and a feeling of peace. Lisa works intuitively with her voice and the instruments to assist you to reach a place where your soul requires you to go. I will certainly be back, thanks Lisa.” – Diddie
EARTH AND SPIRIT
Akin to a House Concert, Lisa shares her collection of more recent songs embodied with Earth and SPIRIT.
As an original songwriter, Lisa shares and records her soulful reflections of place, nature and their connection with spirit. As a performer, her music has a way of wrapping around an audience and through story, invites others into her world. She loves to sing from the heart and mainly uses acoustic guitar and sometimes ukulele, shruti, lyre and drum to accompany her music. Contact Lisa to discuss performance opportunities for community events and intimate listening spaces.
FEEL your rhythm! Allow an integrated body experience through drumming.
A Drum Circle is a great way to get in touch with your own rhythm using the Djembe and percussion instruments. Designed for all levels of experience; be supported within the group to learn a diverse range of rhythms with the opportunity for improvisation.
