ABOUT PATTY SHORTREED
Bringing the joy of music and authentic expression into people's lives is one of my greatest pleasures.
I excel at teaching people how to connect with their audience through their voice or music. As an international coach, voice and communications trainer, I facilitate voice and empowerment workshops. I am also recording artist, concert performer, vocal teacher and piano teacher.
My Musical Journey
My music career began at age eleven; by eighteen I was playing professionally at the Banff Springs Hotel and the Calgary Petroleum Club. After a career in the corporate world I returned to my musical roots and re-awakened my voice mid-life, performing throughout Alberta in both private and popular public venues and self-produced concerts. I founded Calgary's "One World Choir" and produced three solo CDs featuring original works.
Live Your Dreams
I know from personal experience that anything is possible at any life stage! From my journey in the halls of power in the world's most profitable oil company, to a dusty cement floor in an ashram in rural India, to my performance on Oprah’s stage I learned that you can do anything you set your mind to.
With more than 25 years' experience in business, public speaking, workshop design and facilitation and a master's degree in organization effectiveness from Pepperdine University I have developed the skills and insights to help others achieve their dreams. I look forward to the opportunity to help you, too.
