Leah Shane Dixon

I make art in multiple media to evoke transcendent states of experience, communication with nonhuman entities, space exploration, and the experience of everyday magic. I will teach one-on-one or group classes for beginners with no musical experience and novices with some prior experience. I can also organize group classes. My method is song-based and hands-on, and tailored to the student. My goal is to turn each student into a self-taught musician, able to analyze songs and deconstruct them and then reconstruct them for their own performances.
