Our In-Person Courses Have Influenced Professional Practice!

Wednesday 28th June 2023

From the 21st to the 23rd of June, we hosted two in-person events in Newcastle, UK.

We are pleased that both events were met with very positive reviews! Including feedback that attendees have already used their newly-informed knowledge to shape their professional practices.

It was fantastic and we've already applied our learning in this morning's professional voice clinic. - Mr Chris Webb, Consultant ENT Surgeon - Liverpool University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

Wednesday's workshop, delivered by Kerrie Obert

On Wednesday, Voice Scientist and VSC lecturer Kerrie Obert delivered a workshop for singers and singing teachers entitled ‘The Signature Sound: Friend or Foe? Balancing Authenticity and Vocal Health’.

I absolutely loved the course, not only the content but the friendly and informal atmosphere. It was also wonderful to meet both fellow students and the tutors from the MA course! - Catherine Kimmance

The following two days saw Kerrie deliver valuable training by sharing her groundbreaking research conducted using endoscopy and MRI scans. Kerrie was joined by the Elite Performers' Clinic at Freeman's Hospital in Newcastle, including Natalie Eastwood SLT, Mr Ben Cosway ENT Consultant, and Pippa Anderson VRC.

 

Thursday and Friday conference

During the event, Ben Cosway delivered an engaging presentation about his work at Newcastle Hospitals, and both Ben and Natalie led an interesting section on case studies. The highlight of the event was the live endoscopies conducted by Natalie and Kerrie on three singers, and Ben even demonstrated his vocal talent while under endoscopy.

Additionally, Claire Cordeaux, CEO of BAPAM, delivered an excellent talk, providing insights into performers' injuries' prevalence and the charity’s invaluable support. Experts Tori Burnay SLT and Linda Hutchison VRC shared their immense knowledge during the case studies and as part of the expert panel. The event was a resounding success, with attendees gaining valuable insights into vocal health and injury prevention in performers.
