Maeve Fry invites you to a Joy-Us and sacred journey of singing, music and playful creativity. Maeve knows that everyone can sing, whether you think you can or think you can’t. Inside each of us are our own unique songs. With Maeve, you can FREE THE SINGER WITHIN!
Singing opens the heart and frees our emotions. In Maeve’s EcstaSING* workshop, you will let go of your inner critic by learning the magic of “Yes-Listening.” You will experience music in a surprisingly new way and even fall in love with the sound of your own voice. As we sing together, we will create our own unique music. And, as we sing together, polarities disappear and we will experience sacred communion.
EcstaSINGS may include Singing, Sound Play, Chakra Toning, Dance and Movement, Osho Kundalini Shaking, Sacred Silence Meditation, Free Vocal Improvisation, Simple Songs and Sound Healing.
Each workshop will be different, building on the ones before. However, all are welcome to each class, both singers and those who think they can’t sing. And, if you’ve always wanted to sing, yet are afraid you can’t, this is the workshop for you!
Please wear loose, comfy clothes. Bring your own water bottle with a secure top. Any movement or singing exercise is optional. You are always at choice!
*The word “EcstaSING” was inspired by the renowned Sufi mystic and musician, Hazrat Inayat Kahn. In his book, “Music,” he says “Sufis call Music or Singing “Masti,” or Ecstasy.” The Sufis believe that the free flying soul was so entranced by music, it finally agreed to enter the human body.

Maeve first created and facilitated EcstaSINGS in Marin, California, at the “Open Secret” Spiritual Center. She also facilitated members of the San Francisco cast of “Phantom of the Opera” with EcstaSING classes, to free their creative spirit, after so many repetitions of “Phantom.”
Maeve has been a professional singer, performer and voice teacher since 1972. She is now available for private voice lessons in Grass Valley.
She is a warm and skilled workshop leader, having created and led countless workshops in the areas of creative expression, Tantra, Chakra Toning and vocal improvisation in San Francisco and Marin, California.
She facilitates Relationship Skills workshops and private sessions as Relationship Igniters with her beloved husband, Orv, at Inner Path in Nevada City. She has also led workshops in The Queen’s Code at Inner Path in Nevada City.
Maeve Fry has been teaching voice since 1972. She ran a successful voice studio in San Francisco and Marin for over 13 years. She moved to Grass Valley with her husband, Orv (a Grass Valley native) in 1998 and taught singing in Grass Valley from 1998 to 2012, when she took a break to be a full time Relationship Coach with her husband, Orv Fry. Now, Maeve feels called to add back into her life her first love: music, singing and teaching.
When she moved to Nevada County, she sang with Music in the Mountains chorus under Maestro Paul Perry, and later under Ken Hardin.
Maeve created the “Song Soirees” for classical singers of all levels at the Miner’s Foundry in Nevada City, as an opportunity for singers to have the opportunity to learn and practice performance skills. She was later asked by Maestro Perry to collaborate with him, continuing the Song Soirees at the Grass Valley Center for the Arts.
Maeve started studying classical voice at age 17, although she knew she could sing at the age of 8. Maeve has been a professional singer and performer for many years. Her varied repertoire includes opera, recitals, music theatre, acting and standup comedy.
She created her own Singing Telegram company in the Bay Area, where she discovered a natural talent for comedy, including an ability to create a safe space for people to laugh and play with her.
Maeve was a member of the National Association of Teachers of Singing in San Francisco for 15 years and participated in their master classes in vocal and performance master classes, both attending and teaching.
She began teaching voice in Mendocino, where she was soloist in a Puccini Opera, “Suor Angelica,” and two Menotti Operas. She also premiered an original music theatre version of “Through the Looking Glass,” written for her.
In 1973 Maeve moved to San Francisco from Mendocino, where she pursued an intense study of opera for 11 years. She was soloist for the Mozart Requiem in San Francisco.
Maeve’s first voice teacher, Rosa Raisa, premiered the first performance of Puccini’s opera, “Turandot,” under the direction of Arturo Toscanini. Her last teacher, Blanche Thebom, was a world renowned diva with the Metropolitan Opera, and head of the Merola Opera Program for the San Francisco Opera.
