Jo Sear Launches Pop Up Vocal Training

Thursday 16th September 2021

We would like to wish MA Voice Pedagogy Alumni, Jo Sear, a huge congratulations on the launch of her new website.

Pop Up Vocal Training offers specialist training for rock, pop, soul and R&B singers, as well as offering training for singing teachers who wish to focus on teaching these CCM (Contemporary Commercial Music) genres.

Jo has devised training based on research conducted during her studies with Voice Study Centre, her focus on broadening CCM teaching knowledge stems from her own personal experiences.

‘At school and college, and until well into my 30s, there were never any singing teachers available to teach me relevant technique for these styles… ‘Pop-Up’ was created for a very important reason: To promote the value of popular music voice training and elevate its educational status in the UK.’
