MA Voice Pedagogy Cohort A’s Inspirational Final Presentation Weekend

Monday 2nd December 2019

Voice Study Centre's first MA Voice Pedagogy Cohort completed their presentations for their final projects over the weekend and it was so exciting to see the varied research that they have been carrying out!
