The Developing Voice
with Karen Brunssen
Thursday 2nd September at 5-7pm (UK time)
At every age vocal function is dependent on how the body progressively and constantly changes.
This presentation will outline those changes alongside the consequential expectations for the coordinated effort and interplay of respiration, vibration, and resonance when singing.
Training The Vocal Athlete: Strategies For Efficient Belting
with Marci Daniels Rosenberg & Wendy LeBorgne
Thursday 9th September at 5-7pm (UK time)
Using interactive models with participants and evidence-based exercises, this workshop will address the needs of this specialized population including strategies to maximize strength and coordination, as well as specialized exercises to facilitate healthy belting and balanced voice production.
We are excited to present this highly informative, interactive workshop with John Nix on Designing Exercises for the Classical and Contemporary Singer.
In this seminar Daron will talk through the context of his research at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, identifying some of the ways in which traditional approaches to training can dysconsciously discriminate against students in terms of race, class, regionality, and internationality.
Beyond 4/4 Time
with Kim Chandler
Thursday 28th October - 5pm-7pm UK time
This presentation is the rhythmic counterpart, suggesting that there is also an over-abundance of songs written in 4/4 time in pop repertoire at the expense of other possibilities.

with Dr David Juncos
Thursday 4th & Thursday 11th November - 5pm-7pm UK time
In this two-part course, you will learn how to use skills from Acceptance and Commitment Training (ACT) to achieve peak performance for yourself or your students.
