Creating Authentic Voice for Authentic Life
Geeta Novotny’s Revolution Voice® is a revolutionary method and practice that uses the voice and sound as a bridge between music and wellness, while delving extensively into the art and science behind these modalities. Built on her philosophy that voice and sound are our greatest sources of therapeutic healing; Geeta has taken her 20+ years as an internationally acclaimed award-winning vocalist, her extensive teaching experience, and her knowledge and practice of the healing arts to provide a transformative and highly-effective, multi-dimensional approach to vocal training, vocal coaching, singing workshops, sound therapy and performances which affords deep healing, self-discovery and empowerment from the inside out.
From her Grammy Award-winning and Academy Award-winning clients refining their talents to her non-professional vocalists and clients who deeply benefit from the therapeutic and confidence-building benefits of singing and sound: clients of all ages and walks of life, skill levels and singing styles seek Geeta for her passionate and all-encompassing style of teaching and for her transformative voice and sound therapy.
“Our voice is the most powerful expression of ourselves and our paramount tool of communication. There is not a human culture that does not sing.”

UNITÉ album released on all streaming platforms!
In this re-mastered collection of famed classical duets, mezzo-soprano Geeta Novotny and her sister, soprano Dana Vachharajani, unite their voices in a collaboration celebrated with performances at Carnegie Hall in New York, and the Aspen Music Festival in Colorado. Featuring the nimble accompaniment of pianist Lydia Brown, 'UNITÉ' spans the ages of classical repertoire, from Italian art songs of the 1600s to the romanticism of the early 20th century. Highlights include Eric H. Thiman's 'Spring Wind,' Gabriel Fauré's romantic 'Puisqu'içi Bas Tout Âme' and G. F. Händel's acrobatic 'Bramo haver mille vite.'
Although the album was first released in 2002, it is now available for the first time digitally, re-mixed and re-mastered by multi Grammy Award-winning mastering engineer Gavin Lurssen.

Geeta's Rucksack Performance Receives Rave Reviews
On June 25th, 2019, Geeta participated in a performance of the musical monodrama "Rucksack" conducted by composer and Geeta's dear friend Russell Steinberg along with the Brightwork Newmusic Chamber Sextet as part of their launch concert as a nonprofit at Monk Space.
Russell Steinberg's stunning contemporary composition draws on Julie Heyman's autobiography "From Rucksack to Backpack", detailing her harrowing escape from the Nazis, her subsequent joy beholding the Statue of Liberty when she and her family immigrated to the USA, and then her somewhat comical run-in just a year later with American police when she was arrested while hiking in the Pocono mountains of Northeastern Pennsylvania.
Noted publication San Francisco Classical Voice wrote, "As conducted by the composer and sung and spoken, with occasional vehemence, by Novotny, Rucksack resonated in several ways."

“It’s so helpful to have Geeta there to see blocks, then teach and guide me — like a coach when you’re training for a sport.
