Alumni Publishes MA Research in the International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders!

Monday 10th April 2023

We are proud of MA Voice Pedagogy alumni Jo Levett for her recent publication in the International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders!

Jo used the research data collected during her MA studies with us within the published article and collaborated with Dr Tim Pring.

The article, 'Amateur choir singers – Does good vocal health matter?' focuses on assessing the experiences of amateur singers, their use of warm-up and cool-down sessions, their vocal health, their sources of help and advice and their reactions to receiving a diagnosis and treatment.

Congratulations, Jo!
