Songwriting . Singing . Improvisation . Free Writing . Yoga . Posture . 

Creativity is at the core of what makes us human, and we're at our best when we're integrating creativity with our day to day experience, engaging with our imagination on a regular basis, and finding ways to express that relationship by bringing it into the world. 

Drawing on 40 years as an artist, musician and writer and 30 years experience teaching and mentoring creativity, I offer experiential and challenging workshops and retreats.

I also offer fully customised workshops and retreats designed for individuals or groups - unplugged, engaging, and fun. Compose a song, write a poem, free your voice, recover your artistic passion, relieve performance anxiety, communicate with your peers.




"It was an amazing opportunity once again Linda. Thank you Thank You. So much passion for the music, I can’t wait to hear the recordings as well. Always wonderful to be a  part of your creativity."

Connie Saulnier Sound, Singer-Songwriter

“Linda McLean’s lyric writing workshop is deep,

magical, and creatively inspiring! I love working with her.”

— Jane Lewis, Singer/Songwriter, Co-founder Women’s Music Weekend

“Linda is a master singer-songwriter who knows exactly how to connect you with the raw, thrilling magic of creating songs. She can take any broken song and help you fix it or she can help you snatch a brand new song out of thin air. She draws on her theatre/yoga background to help you train in performance techniques and she is incredibly knowledgeable about self care for body and soul. Do yourself a favour and sign up for one of her workshops!"

— Stéphanie Nutting, Songwriter, Musician, Professor, College of Arts, University of Guelph

“Linda is one of those old souls with fresh curiosity. She is attentive, conscientious, playful, authentic and serious about her purpose in helping others. She has been there herself with creative challenges and so can offer compassionate patient guidance and tools

& practices that really work. She is the real deal.”

— Lisa Lipsett, EdD, visual artist and founder Creative For Nature
