Thank you for helping me Defy Gravity!

I couldn't have done it without you, and I'm deeply appreciative. It's been an incredible year! Since completing Part 1 of my Fitzmaurice Voicework training program, I've helped people discover their breath and free their voices in Vancouver, California, Colombia and New Zealand. Part 2 is just around the corner, so it's time for me to take wing again...

It feels like Defying Gravity to take this time away from home and family, but I have faith that with the generosity and support of my community, I can do it. Since I started practicing and teaching Fitzmaurice Voicework, I've seen life-changing shifts in myself and my students. This work helps people feel so deeply connected to their bodies that singing is effortless and expressing truth is natural and easy.

Since I started practicing this teaching technique a year and a half ago, my students have made incredible leaps in their singing and performing. Something greater is at work as well though, and this is where my great passion lies. People are re-integrating their voices: healing their hurts, overcoming their fears, and becoming more whole as human beings. They're re-discovering true freedom!

Here's what I already do: www.donyametzger.com
Here's what I'll learn: www.fitzmauricevoice.com

On my video you'll hear a top ten SAI tenor, a BHS singing judge, a Regional Championship Chorus Director, and Fitzmaurice teacher, share their experiences of how my teaching has impacted their music and their lives. Check it out!

Once I complete this Certification, I'll be the only Fitzmaurice teacher in the world with a specialization in Barbershop singing!

This year the donation panel contains some 'advance tickets' - your donation at the $100 or $1000 level gives you the opportunity to experience the benefits of Fitzmaurice Voicework too!

"...but I swear one day I'll be up in the sky Defying Gravity!"
