Teacher: Phoebe Dubar
Dates: 30th and 31st October at 10 am

Do you love music, sound and vibration? Have you ever felt curious about how to connect with it in a more tangible way? Maybe how to incorporate it into your teaching, holding space or meditation? Maybe you feel called to create sound at home, for fun, to inspire, to invoke joy?

Join Phoebe Dubar for a weekend of sound journeying and learning how to incorporate a variety of easy to use instruments and sounds into your life. This training is for everyone, no musical experience or skill necessary.

Over the weekend immersion into all things sound, we’ll explore the use of different instruments, including the voice, Himalayan bowls, crystal bowls, chimes, drums, and grounding instruments. For each instrument, you’ll learn the history, benefits, techniques to use them and have the opportunity to practice.

Day One:

Beginning with a sound bath, we’ll then explore the question ‘what is sound?’ as well as the power of intention. We’ll look at an overview of music tones, harmonious and dissonant combinations and discover Himalayan bowls, Koshis, Tingsha and Chimes. Phoebe will introduce us to the history and theory of sound, vibration and brainwave entrainment, and talk through playlisting for classes. We’ll then finish with an uplifting mantra practice.

Day Two:

Beginning with mantra, we then dive back into exploring new sounds, techniques and history of the voice (including vocal toning, 6 healing sounds and mantra), crystal bowls, drums, and grounding instruments. You’ll then have the opportunity to pick a few instruments and practice on each other. We’ll finish with a meditative sound bath.

About Phoebe

Phoebe is a vocalist, violist and producer and a professional musician, fronting a number of original projects and jazz, funk and soul acts for the past couple of decades. However her deep love of yoga and fascination with sound and vibration drew her to sound healing as a modality. She facilitates sound baths at yoga studios around Melbourne and beyond, using a combination of crystal and Himalayan singing bowls, chimes, gong, hand pan, Monochord and vocal toning. Participants lie down and relax as they are “bathed” in sound, slowing down their brainwaves and lulling them into a deep state of meditation and healing. It’s a profound experience for many, with no experience or skills required by its participants.

Her entry into the sound healing space coincided with her most recent, solo musical venture, IKSRE (I Keep Seeing Rainbows Everywhere), which combines field recordings she has meticulously collected from across the vast Australian landscape, with vocals, synths, strings and binaural beats. 

Phoebe is deeply passionate about using sound and vibration as a key tool for healing, and using field recordings to help city dwellers connect with the sounds of our earth. She also aims to create somewhat of a time capsule of the sounds of nature, as they are now, as we hurtle towards the decline in biodiversity and climate crisis.
