Sound Healing & Vocal Coaching
The human voice and our conscious use of it as an instrument can penetrate and heal even the deepest shadows of our human condition. Julia Cameron
Dinah Snow is not your ordinary voice coach. She integrates multiple methodologies, including yoga-based practices and intuition, for a holistic approach that liberates her clients’ voices, allowing them to speak and sing with greater ease, joy, and skill, while fostering physical well-being.
As a Certified Vocal Coach of the 6 Point Vocal WAV Method®, a mentee of Silvia Nakkach, internationally acclaimed authority in the field of voice, sound and music healing, and a lifelong yoga practitioner, Dinah has the training, experience, teaching and coaching skills necessary to help clients with a wide range of goals and aspirations. From untying the knots of suppression and holding back, to feeling safe and comfortable singing, sounding and speaking, to tuning the nervous system for health and well-being, to reaching higher levels of spiritual connection and self-awareness, Voice Yoga offers a holistic path to freeing your voice.
Because sound is pure vibration, the voice reveals long held vibrational patterns and beliefs that inhibit the effortless flow of breath, vocal resonance and harmony in one’s life. Tryshe Dehvney

The body is held together by sound, and the presence of disease indicates that some sounds are out of tune…primordial sound is the mysterious link that holds the universe together in a web that is the quantum field. Dr. Deepak Chopra

What People Have Said
“Dinah came through with some wonderful movement of the body to help us anchor that information and take us even deeper into that experience by having our whole body get involved in the exercises. So it was a really great combination of learning some cognitive ideas so we could be sharper, but also now experiencing it in our body so we could live it. Very profound; very useful; a very rich experience; a very SAFE experience – safe to learn something new and uncomfortable – safe to get outside the box a bit and then FEEL that experience of being outside the box. And it was just really expanding and extraordinary and I’m a different person today from having been in front of all these people and doing what we did.”
“The most valuable thing I got was the song that we did, the song to anchor emotions, the affirmation that I needed to go forward today. It worked really well for me. It was fun. It was a great class. It was very comfortable working with Dinah. I highly recommend the class for anyone who wants to move forward in their life and feels stuck in any way. Really powerful; very powerful class. ‘I am powerful and free!’”
That ‘stuff’ is quickly disappearing
“A year seems like such a short time to get over 20 years of ‘stuff’ about my voice. But because of Dinah’s constant encouragement, because of the techniques she has taught me and keeps pushing me to improve on, and because of her heart-to-hearts in which she zooms in on hidden fears that still hold me back, that ‘stuff’ is quickly disappearing.
Twelve months ago, I cried at the thought of getting on stage and at the thought that I never would get on stage. The other day after performing [in her fourth show], I didn’t cry, but I felt like it out of true appreciation for what Dinah has done for me and for my own courage to hang in there and keep on getting on that stage, open my mouth and ‘pour’. I am so grateful that I met Dinah.”
I am now doing things I only once dreamed of
“When I began with Dinah as my vocal coach, I had thoughts of developing a stronger voice for singing in my church choir. She taught me voice techniques and principles that hold true for singing as well as for life itself. She taught me about relaxing, being present and communicating through singing. Little did I know that through her encouragement and gentle, yet firm, coaching I would gain the confidence to sing solo in front of an audience! Dinah has made me believe in myself and I am now doing things I only once dreamed of. I hope you know you have made a difference in my life.”
This has been an amazing experience
“I’ve been taking voice lessons from Dinah for several months now. I have to say, this has been an amazing experience for me. Dinah is an outstanding vocal coach. Already I’ve learned so much about how to use my voice. Dinah is an excellent teacher and guide. In addition to sharing her own experience and expertise in her lessons, she offers practical and fun vocal exercises that have helped me see quick results. I never realized singing was such an art form and could be so much fun!”
I have learned…techniques for…breathing as well as comfort with making sound without inhibition
“Dinah has opened a whole new world of singing for me. I was searching for a voice instructor who performed a variety of music and who could really help a student strengthen her vocal power. Not only can Dinah quickly enhance your ability, she offers highly personalized sessions that bring forth the spiritual element of singing that truly lifts the soul.
Singing during my pregnancy has been such a beautiful way to communicate with my baby to be. Also, I have learned some incredible techniques for enhancing my breathing as well as comfort with making sound without inhibition. What a true gift singing with Dinah has been for the both of us!!”
