MA Voice Pedagogy alumna to be published in AmSAT Journal

Saturday 9th September 2023

We are delighted to report that MA Voice Pedagogy alumna and Online Short Course guest speaker Michele Capalbo is to be published in this summer’s AmSAT Journal, as produced by the American Society for the Alexander Technique (AmSAT). The article will also be re-published in the inaugural peer-reviewed Alexander Journal (expected October 2023).

Michele’s article – ‘Whispered Vowels for Singers: A Discussion and Exploration’ – examines current research in conjunction with multiple pedagogical perspectives to explore the ‘whispered “ah”’ (a traditional Alexander Technique procedure) from a singer-centric perspective.

Congratulations, Michele!
