Application of Acoustic Vocal Pedagogy for CCM Singing
with Chadley Ballantyne
Thursday 15th July at 5-7pm (UK time)
This course will be recorded and sent out to all pre-registered participants to watch in their own time.
Due to licensing laws, we are unable to sell this course retrospectively.
High-frequency energy in the singing voice is something that we can hear and that we should notice.
In this short course, participants will learn how to distinguish low and high-frequency energy in the singing voice, discern the effect that high-frequency energy has on the sound we hear, and enhance resonance strategies for singing with speech sounds and novel uses of white noise.
When we are aware of high-frequency energy in the sound of the voice, we can use this to guide our students and our own singing to the desired outcomes.
