TROUBADOR. SONG DOULA. COMPOSER. CREATIVE.

I am a working composer and musician who has a habit of starting most sentences with “I wonder if….”

My love of dance, theater, meditation and yoga has encouraged my excavations in sound/music to realms of ecstatic spectacle, trance inducing mantra and various forms of multi-media musical story telling (including records, opera, musicals and film).

When I am working with ensembles as a composer, producer and/or bandleader, I rely heavily on my philosophy of and deep passion for collaboration and communication. The whole is greater than the sum of its parts but all will be invited and encouraged to be fully present.

I am happiest when I am in the studio or on the dance floor or with my people (creative minds and generous hearts), discussing and creating work that is or seeks transcendent states of consciousness even if we land at mere self expression!

This is my life’s work.

Sanctuary studios is an artistic home for songwriters, composers and creatives to learn to unleash their creativity and write, record, produce and release their records in a supportive, safe, challenging and encouraging environment.

Musicians are valuable treasures to society and deserve a safe and encouraging space to excavate their work, uncover their story and share it with others.

I created Sanctuary Studios after working for 18 + years in professional studios, academic music conservatories, home studios, laptops on trains, professional theater companies, songwriters circles etc. etc etc to combine the most potent medicines of these creative practices and environments so that I could serve a new wave of creatives in a way where they feel inspired, encouraged and fully supported in their journey to write, create and release their music

…in a way that feels authentic and extremely high quality.

In these small, specialized group courses, your cohort creates a very special bond that ignites creativity and encourages you to go beyond your typical hesitation points in your own writing. The instructional course videos included in the programs, that guide you through techniques and practices of writing, arranging, recording and mixing are valuable and offer a firm foundation in practical skill sets, but it is the group dynamic and energy that has shown over and over again to be the most powerful igniter in encouraging artists and their visions toward their own completed albums and projects.

As a guide and a practitioner, I take this work as sacred mission and consider it one of the most profound blessings of my life to create and share this space and knowledge.

"Hope is a nurturing guide on the journey to your own creativity. I’ve always studied music through a classical lens of recreating someone else’s sound or ideas, but this class allowed me to finally explore my own unique artistic voice. Songwriting is an amalgamous craft and Hope finds a way to gently ease you into exploring sound and trying new things. She teaches tools, exercises, and writing games to spark creation and gleans perspectives on practicing that encourages the student to continue forward in the process rather than to get discouraged in the fog. If you’re wanting to push your boundaries and get more connected to your creative self, Hope would be an excellent teacher.”

“The benefits of Hope’s Songwriting Lab are hard to put into words. She has an incredible amount of expertise, excellent teaching videos, and individualized help even in a group setting. But the thing that really sets Hope’s course apart is the environment she creates. The group sessions were supportive, genuine, and non-competitive. Most importantly, Hope made it easy to be authentic to myself, and find enjoyment in my process without judgement.”
