Unlock the secrets of some of the most powerful music ever written inside the digital course:

Singing Hildegard:

From Parchment to Performance

Learn to read, interpret, and breathe sacred life into the songs of Hildegard von Bingen.

An online course for…

Singers and Musicians

Teachers and Scholars

Healers and Seekers

Access the very source of Hildegard's music so you can amplify your own, unique voice, and develop a depth of understanding as you interpret her sacred songs.

When was the first time you heard Hildegard’s music?

For me, that was a pivotal, life-altering moment.

And from that moment, I instantly knew that I wanted to learn about her music, and of course, sing it for myself.

I suspect that is the same for you, too!

At first, I had no idea where to start. I transcribed my own performing edition of one of her songs from a recording I heard.

But all of that has changed.

I was so committed to pursuing Hildegard’s music that I headed to graduate school to specialize in medieval music. That was over twenty years ago!

Since that time, I have been teaching, performing, and transcribing her songs for hundreds of singers, musicians, conductors, and healers around the world. 

And while that first transcription helped open the door for me to discover Hildegard’s music for myself, I quickly learned that a modern edition captures a fraction of the power, nuance, and sheer beauty of medieval music.

Especially the wildly ornate and expressive music of Hildegard.

Her sacred music takes you on a journey. If you want to go as deeply as you can, you must take a look deep into the past, and bring it into the present.

There is magic in the manuscript. 

The good news: you do not need to get an advanced degree in medieval music! Nor should you be overwhelmed by such a big task as reconstructing the notation of 12th-century Germany!

I have developed a simple and clear introductory curriculum to show you, step-by-step, how to create your own performing editions of Hildegard’s songs.

And to help you become an informed and skillful interpreter of this music through a sacred, soulful lens.

If you long for the same kind of musical and spiritual connection with Hildegard and her music as I do…

You are in the right place.

I am going to tell you how Singing Hildegard will give you the tools, inspiration, and support needed to help you realize your own vision of performing Hildegard’s music with your unique voice.

Emily, Student

Teaching and performing the music of Hildegard von Bingen has been the musical journey of a lifetime.

When I first encountered Hildegard’s notation, I had been given a magnificent gift.

I want to share that with you. I want you to be enlivened and courageous to take up the challenge of accessing this medieval musical language, but also to empower you to become the divine messenger.

You no longer need a graduate degree (!) to access this music and Hildegard’s highly specific and nuanced musical language. You will learn from someone who has done it all before, and has the right tools, best resources, and an ardent love of teaching.

So I hope you will take the next step, and enter the Convent…

I’ll see you inside!
