Ieva Wool is a gentle and light-hearted conductor and singing teacher with a passion for having fun and building community. She had her first piano lesson at the age of seven, but started conducting when she was five, helping her mother's singing career whenever she could sneak on stage. (In case you are not Latvian, Ieva is pronounced ee'eh vah.)
Gotta Have Fun!
Ieva's singers learn a lot, and have fun doing it. Her concerts are heart-warming and memorable events that touch the heart and make the spirit soar. She often delights the audience by including them in a few sing-along songs. She loves to share the grace and beauty that emerge when we sing together.
Gotta Have Skill!
Ieva brings 25 years of experience as a trainer, group facilitator and gestalt therapist to her choirs and students. She has been conducting since 1993, and has offered singing lessons since 1998. Ieva continues to study conducting at workshops and seminars in BC and Oregon, and trains her own voice whenever she can get a lesson. In 1999, she won the "Be Your Own Boss" Entrepreneur of the Year award for small business. >click here for an article about Ieva entitled "For the Love of Music!"
All musical people seem to be happy; it is to them the engrossing pursuit,
almost the only innocent and unpunished passion. - Sydney Smith
