Led by jazz singer Sanni Orasmaa, SoundByNature combines world's purest nature and highly focused voice and performance training to elevate your performing skills to the next level. We provide courses and excursions in Finland and all over the world in places that provide natural beauty and solitude. 

 

Our favorite Forest Sound Walk location Meiko Wilderness Area is only 30min drive away from Helsinki.

We can meet you anywhere in the world. Here a workshop at the Royal Music Academy in Stockholm, Sweden.

Our retreats in Lapland are situated at least 350 miles above the Arctic Circle.

 

FROM NOISE TO A VOICE

Did you ever call across the sleeping lake and hear your voice echoing from the backwoods? Or holler from the top of the mountain filling the valleys with your sound? Belt out your favorite tunes from the bottom of your lungs while driving an empty highway? Give a fantastically sounding one man show in the loneliness of your bathroom while taking a shower?

How would you like to be able to recall that moment next time you give a speech / sing a song / play a tune in front of an audience?

NATURE ORIENTED VOICE AND PERFORMANCE TRAINING® creates culture that leads you into a conscious relationship with your authentic expression and sound. From your own space, at your own pace.

 

NATURE IS SOUND

 
 

We train through the lens of the natural world by using simple yet powerful skills and practices for deeper understanding of the body, presence and presentation.

 

NATURE ORIENTED VOICE AND PERFORMANCE TRAINING SUCCESFULLY COMBINES ACADEMIC COMPETENSE WITH EXPERIENTAL PRACTICE AND EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE

 

Our training is based on continuos scientific research and over 15 years of internationally acknowledged practical work in the fields of voice and performance studies.

What connect's the movement of the sun to the beating of our heart? They both have a pulse. Our body vibrates and the vibration produces sound. Through sound, we can enhance health in our lives affecting our overall wellbeing not just on a physical level, but emotionally as well.

 

MORE THAN ORDINARY SINGING LESSONS OR NATURE WALKS

(We combined them to enhance both!)

SoundByNature Inc. provides training sessions based on our Nature Oriented Voice and Performance Training program.

Developed to enhance your physical and inner voice, this training is based on scientific studies and taught by instructors with an average of 10-15 years experience.  Located in Northern Finland, we hold courses both within the Arctic Circle and around the world, finding locations that provide natural beauty and solitude.
Classes are kept small, to allow all participants to receive individual attention.  We also hold private training sessions for teams and individuals, both in-person and online.


Thank you Sanni for the new ideas, the lovely atmosphere and the great conversations!

SoundByNature cooperates with the National Finnish Forest Services Metsähallitus and is an associated partner of the project ARCTISEN -  Culturally Sensitive Tourism in the Arctic during the years 2018-2021.

 

WHY NATURE ORIENTATION IN PERFORMANCE TRAINING?

We know nature. And because we know nature, it appears to us as the supportive, secure environment where we have space and security to explore and develop our presence.

Our voice and performance training sessions include nature connection both in natural and virtual environments. We use virtual elements as a tool in exploring the personal space and presence. This allows us to experience the restoring affects of nature also where the natural nature connection is not possible, in city environments, class rooms and work places.

Learn more about our training from our training page.

NATURE

The research relates to the human development over millions of years in a physical environment, where the physical environment mainly included nature.

We need supportive environments for developing bodily and psychologically well-being. A supportive environment should be experienced as comprehensible, accessible and secure. The more pressure we feel, the greater is our need to find supportive environments.

It can be assumed that already because of our history, we ‘understand’ the natural environment, which means possibilities to regain resources and explore environments (Kaplan & Kaplan, 1989).

The positive response to nature appears cross-culturally.

 

FOCUS ON THE BREATH

Our breathing opens the pathway to our mind and body. How we experience our breath effects to how our mind opens to new experiences. 

 

SPACE

The freedom of inner and outer space is an important part of our training. The person who feels free inside but stucked outside and at the same time person who is free outside but doesn't get the guidance he needs to work on the inside is not free. Nature can help us to combine these inner and outer spaces through concentrated practices such as awareness exercises. 

 

JAZZ 

For us Jazz is not just a style of music. It is a way of being in the moment, playing for the joy of playing, coming from the Self and supporting others to do the same.

Singing with the leaves, humming with the rushes... Hearing how every tree has its own song... Nature singing brings you to the origins of nature and sound.
 

ON THE FOOTSTEPS OF OUR FATHERS


The tradition of singing in nature, with nature and to nature falls back hundreds of years in Finland. Humming, singing and callings have been part of our daily life. Singing has been there to channel sadness and joy, to ease the hard work load and to bring comfort in the solitude. The songs have connected us into ourselves, into our society and into nature. Singing has had an evolutionary role in maintaining the physical safety of the group against predator control, and in creating feelings of safety and psychological comfort between families. 


Nature singing - in Finnish Luontolaulu® - leads you to relax through hummings, tonings and simple melodies. It opens your senses through listening and feeling and restores the connection to nature. You will be able to capture those experiences and take them with you to your every day life. Luontolaulu brings nature to your every day.
