"She should take voice lessons when she's older" said Ruth's kindergarten teacher to her Mom. This started her on a lifelong journey of discovery into the power of voice. Born in the Big Apple, Ruth became a Jersey girl when her parents wanted to move to the countryside. Music and singing were always a big part of Ruth's life through school. She studied vocal performance and pedagogy at Mannes Music College in New York City, The New School for the Arts in Montclair, NJ, and Westminster Choir College in Princeton, NJ. Through her parents, Ruth became involved in the Gurdjieff Foundation in NYC for many years, and was also involved in Landmark Education for several years.
Ruth has a particular passion for the holistic, healing properties of our voices and vibration. She is a Licensed Vibrational Sound Therapy Practitioner and holds a Level 1 certificate in Sound Healing with Voice and Shoden Reiki. She is a published author of the book "The Voice of Women's Wisdom" which can be found on amazon.com. She is also a member of The Sound Healers Association, Holistic Business Association and Natural Life Business Partnership.
Ruth has been a holistic voice coach for over 20 years, with a performance background encompassing musical theater, classical, jazz, pop and sacred genres. Since 1995, she and husband Jim have been welcoming students and clients to their home studio Jemini Music in Hope, NJ.
Her husband refers to her as the research queen, as one of her favorite places is in front of the computer googling the next interesting topic. If you can’t find her there, she’ll be working in their beautiful studio gardens looking for the garden fairies. Ruth loves reading, singing, interior decorating, making videos, gardening, bird watching, 80’s rock, hunting for seashells and their sweet dachshund Baxter.
