I have worked with:
- government employees
People work with me when:
- their "usual" isn't working
- they crave something different, something deeper
- they're hungry to unearth why they're stuck
- they want to create with their whole selves
- they're intrigued by creating with cosmic support
- they always loved to sing but stopped
- they suffer from performance anxiety
- they're tired of creating being so hard
- they're ready to move past their inner critic and naysayers
- they want design and branding that feels fully authentic
- they're spiritually-inclined
“I first met Angela when I was searching for a voice teacher in the area. We had an immediate connection, and it soon became clear to me, that she was much more than my voice teacher - she was my confidante, my ally, my life coach and my spiritual guide. Her nurturing soul and infinite wisdom have helped me find my true voice both in singing and in life.
There are two things that set Angela apart -
1. Angela has an extraordinary understanding of the physical body and the voice. As a voice teacher and a dancer, she knows the anatomy and physiology of the body, which lends her a greater understanding of the mind-body connection. If you are experiencing any emotional blocks, she will lead you to your body to discover these blocks, explore them and release them.
2. Angela is pro-active! There are many books that will explain to you the benefits of positive thinking, but not tell you HOW to change your inner monologue. There are many therapists who will sit there for an hour and listen to your problems, but never really help you dig out of them. Angela will provide you ACTIVE steps you can take. She will give you exercises, guided meditations, literature suggestions, etc. to help you navigate, explore and understand whatever issues you may be going through in your life.
In my coaching experience with Angela, she helped me work through a specific negative thought I have had for years. She guided me in exploring and working through some feelings I had towards someone who deeply hurt me, and she also brought to light a lot of deep seated, subconscious feelings and thoughts about my career that I have been carrying around for years. She led me through various meditations, mind/body and writing exercises. I am now less burdened by the issues and experiences we explored together, and should any negative feelings or thoughts arise, I now have the tools to honor them, learn from them and work through them.
Angela is a true blessing in my life, and I am so happy that she will be sharing her many gifts with others.”

“I’ve always seen the voice as a powerful gift for all of us, but I hadn’t explored my own enough, and I knew that was one of my biggest fears. In taking SoulSinging, I learned that my consciousness and voice are interconnected and that I can sing! As a result of the class, I have started to spontaneously sing more often and am more confident in voicing myself. I also have less fear. Angela is a great guide, and her sessions are so fun! She knows how to open a person to the freedom of singing, and does a great job integrating the technique, healing, and spirituality of singing.”
“When I have a singing lesson with Angela, it's also a coaching session, and her incredible intuitive skills have made that combination an extremely powerful force for change in my life. Singing in front of others used to count as a traumatic event for me. In working with Angela I’ve not only overcome my fear of public singing, I’ve rediscovered the simple, child-like joy of singing, and this has helped me find my authentic speaking voice.
At the beginning of most sessions, I tell her what's going on in my life. She listens intently, pauses while she tunes in to what I'm saying, and then uses her coaching and musical skills to create a voice exercise that is perfectly suited to where I am in the moment. More often than not, the exercise not only improves my singing, it takes me to a place of healing.
What I have learned from my own journey and coaching practice is that most of the healing we humans are longing for must occur in our emotional brain - it's physiologically not possible to change our losing strategies and habits through a thinking process. Real change requires an integration of the body (and the survival and emotional part of our brain) with the newer, thinking part of our brain.
A voice lesson with Angela is one of the most efficient ways to do this I have ever experienced.”

Helpful and joyful!
“I had no idea what to expect from my free call with Angela. I was presented immediately with an excellent decision-making tool that I will definitely be using in the future. (That alone was worth my time!) This offering allowed me to see how she worked and what we’d work like together. There was no pressure to do more than our phone call, which I really appreciated. She came from a place of true caring and listening and wisdom—it oozes from her. I can’t wait to do more work with her!”
- AS, MUSICIAN
“I hired Angela to help me create my website. She took care of the creative side and the technical details. I told her what my vision was, gave her some pictures, and wrote much of the copy. She put it all together in a way that I never could have. It was such a relief to have her at my side taking care of all the things that I’m not good at or don’t really want to do. She was super easy to work with, adapting to my crazy schedule, and never lost patience with me. She made the process fun and easy. I couldn’t have done it without her!”

“I am a composer, musician, and artist - a “creative” with a deeply personal vision and approach to my work. I also need a way to put what I do out into the world and make a living. Angela Winter, bless her, has done that for me. With her keen intuition, her innate artistry and sense of balance, her pragmatic and knowledgeable business sense, and her infinite patience, she created for me a beautiful website that authentically represents my work and the soul from which it emanates. It also provides for me multiple avenues for income generation and connection with other artists.
I absolutely recommend surrendering your art or your business, or your vision for your art or your business, into Angela’s very capable hands. You will be glad you did.”

“The websites that Angela have designed for Great Plains give potential clients the global, emotional, sensory experience of coming into the office. The color palate, the spacing, the images and the text design all combine to communicate what it is like to interact with our staff and the feeling of our space. And it all happens as soon as they land on the splash page, before they even read the text.
We have spent a lot of money on websites before and they all communicated the information about our practice - what we do, costs, philosophy etc.- but they were really just well organized bulletin boards with good visuals. However, they did not give someone the experience of how it feels to work with our multifaceted practice.
Not so with the sites Angela has created. Her design process really puts the whole experience of our clinic right on the web. When a potential client calls no one has to wonder if they know what we are about, they have already experienced it. In fact, we have had many clients after their first visit say, “ My experience today was exactly what I expected from looking at your website.” THAT is a digital presence, the whole reason we have a website.”

“With this being my first website, I wasn’t entirely sure what I wanted and went back and forth quite a few times with Angela. She remained patient with me throughout the process and ultimately helped me take the images/ideas in my head and translate them onto a page. Her creativity and empathy meant that she understood my needs and desires, and was able to help me capture the ‘feel’ that I wanted for my website. The result is a clean and elegant design, with the inclusion of several features that I hadn’t considered in my original plan.
Most of all, I appreciate how Angela was open to any changes I wanted to make. She always responded quickly and took the time to explain different options. I always felt like my website was a priority. I’d recommend Angela to anyone: she’s positive, big on ideas and listens deeply, so that you get the website you were looking for.”

“Angela has taught me to recognize what my body tells me, and that your body, mind and soul are forever connected to your voice. One of the things I’ll always remember, is our first time meeting she said, “We’re gonna find your voice”. I thought that was such an amazing and loaded statement, because I truly have found my voice, not only what others can hear or what I can hear, but spiritually and emotionally. The voice is so much more than just singing. Singing is so much more than just sound, it’s emotion and if you aren’t connected with yourself it’s never going to be authentic. ”
— CR, SCHOOL COUNSELOR & PERSONAL TRAINER
“Your teaching about voice, and music in general has been invaluable. Even more than that, though, you’ve helped me to grow artistically and spiritually, too. Thank you for guiding me past the fears I had about singing and for helping me to understand that it’s okay to not be perfect. It’s always wonderful to have a teacher that you want to work hard for and who wants to see you succeed. They’re the ones who really inspire, and the ones you’ll always remember. ”

“ I definitely recommend working with Angela. She takes a holistic approach, creates a safe environment for sharing, and meets her students where they are. She will push you to explore outside of your comfort zone so that you can grow. She also helps you to explore where your limits are. This applies to both voice and life coaching aspects of her teaching. For me, the most transformative part of the SoulSinging experience was acknowledging the true me: that part of me that is strong and confident that I shove into a corner. Giving myself permission to acknowledge her and her needs was a breakthrough. It is fun to work with someone who sees the place for science, soul, technique, emotion, spiritual, physical, and emotional impacts and how they connect with each other. That connection is what lets us find and use our true voice! ”

“During the Artist’s Way class, Angela noticed things about me and explained them in a way that I could understand. Very helpful and insightful!”
- Victoria, Virginia
“The Artist's Way class with Angela was so inspiring! Each week I learned to delve a little more deeply into the blocks that are stopping me from living a creative life of my choosing. I feel as if I am now in a place that is open to all possibilities and that nagging censor has calmed its voice. Thank you Angela for all that you did to lead a wonderful class!”
- MU, Colorado
“You know how sometimes you know exactly what you need to do, but you’re Just. NOT. Doing it? Or you know that the lack you’re feeling is self-imposed in some way? Angela shone a gentle light on those places. I felt I could give myself permission to acknowledge my needs, and tend to them. I cleared space in my life for more of what I wanted – more joy, more self-care, more play and at the end of the day, just more space period. And that opened the door to abundance. Angela does it all with lightness, humour, a gentle touch and heaps of love.”
- NP, Maryland
”Hi Angela! I would like to thank you for the course on Julia's book "The Prosperous Heart". Our weekly meetings were so helpful and you have given so many useful pieces of advice and exercises, that it was very comfortable to follow the book's schedule. It also was hard work, but the results are really precious: I reached the next level of my creativity and managed to take the first step towards my dream of becoming a designer - I applied to the design school and compiled a competitive portfolio (and it is partly thanks to you).
PS:If you’re thinking of working with Angela, I highly recommend Angela as a creativity coach - she is caring, wise, full of useful knowledge that she transfers to others at proper time and pace.
Billions of thanks, Angela”
