About Trish Watts

Trish believes passionately that ‘Every life can SING!’ She was pelted into life by the singing of the village church choir & instilled with a dream that singing was a way of life & a medicine for all.

Trish is a registered Voice Movement Therapy (VMT) Practitioner and studied with the Norma Canner Foundation Training, USA. She has a private practice in Sydney, Australia.

Her love of travel and different cultures led her to facilitate VMT workshops and courses in India, Cambodia & New Zealand. Also offering vocal programs with Afghani and Iranian women as a volunteer for STARTTS- Service for the Treatment and Rehabilitation of Torture & Trauma Survivors in Sydney.

Trish cofounded Willow (Music) Publishing & is a published songwriter and recording artist with over 10 CD collections of original work. She has a Diploma in Music Education & is an accredited Singing & Piano teacher with the NSW Conservatorium of Music.

Directing a cappella choirs is part of her life-blood.

For the past 40yrs, Trish has worked as a freelance artist, workshop & retreat facilitator affording her the freedom of a creative path. She has a strong grounding in sacred, spirited communal song.
