1. Onome's Offerings on Outschool!

For those of you who are looking for more online opportunities for your children to access the power and beauty of their voices, I am now offering classes for kids on Outschool!

My first class, currently in progress, is "Vocal Music Composition Camp With GarageBand." I am offering multiple sections of this 4-day course to suit a wide range of schedules for children all around the world. For students who are new to singing, I am offering "The FUNdamentals of Singing," a one-time workshop to learn the basics of breath, resonance, pitch accuracy, and stage presence. And there will be more classes to come, so click the link below to follow my Outschool page, where I'll post upcoming classes.
 
Onome's Offerings on Outschool

2. Sunday Platform with Onome at NY Society for Ethical Culture,
January 19, 2020.

Here is a video of one of my last performances of the year, ironically in January. I re-uploaded it with better audio. I led a sing-along of "Sing Through My Voice" by the Beautiful Chorus, a zipper song I created called "Rise, Rise," and the South African folk anthem "Shosholoza."

I continued with last week's exploration of cymatics - the sacred geometry of sound made visible. A few key questions that came up during the video: 
 
  • While listening to the notes, are there any that jump out at you? Do you feel certain notes in specific areas of your body?
  • What is the experience for you listening to the tones, singing along with them, visualizing the cymatic structures, or any combination of the above?

Soul Incites: Self-Development Book Club
The purpose of Soul Incites: Self-development Book Club (SDBC) is to bring my extensive background as a teacher and workshop facilitator to the online sphere by providing a space where women can witness and support each other in our growth journeys by harnessing the wisdom of personal development texts. We are covering a diverse range of topics such as mindset transformation, energy work, money, relationships, clearing trauma, creating breakthroughs, specific self-development techniques and healing modalities, spiritual and metaphysical approaches to personal development, and more.
Who is Onome?
 
Onome is a vocalist, facilitator and interdisciplinary artist of Urhobo heritage in the Niger Delta. She incorporates improvisation into her practice as a tool to expand consciousness, creativity, and personal development. Through her audience-interactive performances, workshops and sound installations, Onome embodies joy, enchantment, and infinite possibility. She is a partner artist at Carnegie Hall as a core member of the vocal improvisation ensemble, Moving Star.

She has performed sound poetry at hundreds of venues nationally, recorded soundscapes for podcasts, and created vocal film scores. She received her MFA in Performance Studies at Pratt Institute. She is the artistic director for Lush Tongue, a vocal improvisation project where sound, creativity, self-discovery, connection, and joy converge through singing—via sound healing sessions, workshops, vocal coaching, retreats, and concerts. She leads Soul Incites, a women's self-development book club. She got her start in spoken word poetry and opera via Nuyorican Poets Cafe and New York University, and now facilitates community vocal immersions at concert halls, conferences, galleries, museums, schools, cultural centers, shelters, prisons, parks, churches, wherever voices gather.
