MA Student’s Work Hits National Press

Sunday 27th October 2019

A massive congratulations to our MA student Emily Foulkes who gained national press recently regarding her vocal pedagogy research into alleviating long-term pain through singing.

Patients on the scheme have reduced their visits to GPs by 40 percent, at a time when waiting lists are at an all-time high.

It was borne out of Emily’s hard work on our MA Voice Pedagogy course

We’re proud to say we recently awarded Emily a bursary so that she can develop this further.
