"Renée's energy and enthusiasm are infectious and they really foster a positive, safe and caring environment. The vocal exercises they taught and their knowledge on all things vocal exploration were exemplary and I would be more than happy to recommend anyone - regardless of where they place themselves on the gender spectrum and beyond - to participate in your workshops in future.”

Lilith Ferreyra-Carroll, age 36 (she/her)
National Community Development officer with Transgender Equality Network Ireland

“I took private lessons with Renée for six months and it was one of my best transition decisions. I have tried for years to understand gender-affirming voice lessons from YouTube videos, and workshops, but all of them were beyond the scope of my understanding. Lessons with Renée helped me to understand how the wonderful vocal instrument works. With exercise and taking small steps along the way, I'm now confident I can climb this mountain and succeed."

Joséphine (she/they)

"Renée's workshop was fun and informative. They did a great job making people feel included while making sure to respect boundaries and not make anyone feel out of place or made try their hand at anything they were comfortable with.

I would highly recommend Trans Vocal Exploration as an introduction to anyone unsure of how to begin approaching voice technique."

Cris R, age 27 (she/they)

"Renée is such a wonderful teacher and facilitator. They brought the group through the key information and exercises, all while constantly re-affirming the importance of each individual finding and appreciating their own voice, not simply conforming to social expectations."

Frances (she/her)

"Since coming out as non-binary I've been increasingly uncomfortable with the sound of my own voice. I have no desire to go on hormones so my goals were to adjust my voice to sound less feminine without that. When I found out about Renee I was really excited to take their class. They are incredibly knowledgeable about this subject and have a lot of experience working with trans and non-binary folks.

I learned a lot in Trans Vocal Exploration and am looking forward to exploring this more in the future. They gave me hope that I can make small adjustments that will make me more comfortable in my own skin."

Skye, age 38 (they/them)

“I love Renée Yoxon's Trans Vocal Exploration workshop because they know how to keep their students interested and involved. They have extensive knowledge about vocals and how to use them.

I haven't had the chance to take singing or songwriting lessons yet but I'm looking forward to it. "

Sophia M. Burgess (she/her)

"Renee has been extremely helpful with getting me started with exploring the avenue of feminising my voice and helping where I've been struggling."

Starla, age 24 (she/they)

"I always leave Renée's classes having learned more about my voice and more about myself. Renée's openness and adaptability to accessibility needs make for a warm and welcoming learning environment. As a trans man, they have also been very helpful in helping me explore different aspects of my voice, which has been very gender-affirming. To me, they have been an excellent vocal coach and life coach. Honestly a two for one deal!"

Mathieu, age 25 (he/him)

“I can say with absolute confidence that Renée’s Trans Vocal Exploration workshop was the best I've ever attended. Their commitment to making the material relevant and accessible to their audience, providing a perfect blend of theory and practice, as well as their dedication to anti-oppressive work particularly impressed me. Would definitely recommend Renée to anyone who asked.”

Julien Johnson, Drop-In & Youth Services Coordinator at Project 10

"The Trans Vocal Exploration workshop was very good and very fun! It was very helpful to discover vocal placements and understandings about 'more feminine and masculine voice'. For those who do not understand much about voice and vocal fold dynamics, it is an incredible conversation. For those who already understand, it is super complementary!"

Yann Cerri, age 26 (they/them)

"I had a great time in Trans Vocal Exploration! It was a fun and informative. They went through very simple exercises that really showed me how much control I already have over my voice, so I feel confident about playing and experimenting with it in the future."

Iris, age 28 (she/her)

"Renée is a really engaging and entertaining teacher. I'm just at the beginning of my journey and I feel like Trans Vocal Exploration gave me the tools I need to push myself in the right direction!"

Sophie, age 24 (she/her)

"Renée is so kind and fun to work with! They have a wonderful energy and try to make everyone feel included and comfortable. I never really knew what to do with my voice. I realized after taking T, I wanted to figure out what my voice was capable of since everything moved around. I'm glad to have a space to test out control of my voice and I have been inviting friends so they can get tips and tricks too. Thank you so much for this resource, it's been so helpful!"

Cricket, age 24 (he/they)

"Trans Vocal Exploration is brilliant. Renée is a bright, bubbly teacher who makes learning fun"
