“I’m very shy about singing, especially in an intimate environment, but Shireen creates a safe and welcoming space to let loose and see what comes out. A beautiful, musical, and fulfilling experience every time!”

- Leah Chatterjee

“I, for the first time felt part of something that came together effortlessly. Without conscious effort of the mind, I felt connected. I felt validated and in touch with some sort of genius. I left the session, high in spirit. Simply happy…what a fantastic, safe experience it was for me.”

- Catalina Frank

“Shireen’s intention invites each participant into varying degrees of play, listening and vocal exploration. Each time I take part in the magic, I touch into new and deeper expression of my soul, including the bits that feel awkward and estranged. So much laughter, honesty, and creativity are the medicines that open my heart in witness and participation. The truth of the magic is only fully known through experiencing this living laboratory of sound and soul.”

- Lillie Goldstein

“For someone who loves words I am struggling to express the enormity of the gift Shireen offers to the community with Vocal Jam. I came into the evening with a lot of anger and despair over what is happening in our world and two magical hours later I left feeling empowered, connected, joyful and that somehow what we shared together not only changed us but was spreading like wings out into the world. Who knew vocalizing could be this powerful!!! I encourage you to give it a go. Thank you Shireen for sharing your passion and authenticity with our community.”

- Carol Delmonico
