Sometimes, getting your voice to do what you want it to means more than just practicing the right vocal exercises. That’s what professional voice coach Line Hilton discovered after working with thousands of talented performers who found their progress hindered by anxiety, self-doubt, and a lack of motivation.
Combining her background as a performer and a nurse, Line developed a unique tool kit that utilizes Rapid Transformational Therapy to identify a performer’s limiting beliefs.
