Thursday 20th October 2022, 7:30 PM - Tuesday 25th October 2022 7:30 PM (London Time)

Part 1

Voice teachers and singers are invited to learn about the primary methods used in voice therapy for healing the injured voice.

Course participants will learn about the research that supports these methods, indications for use, and any contraindications.

Participants will be given the opportunity to experience several of the techniques in class.

 

Part 2

Voice teachers and singers who have already completed Therapeutic Techniques for Healing the Injured Voice (Part 1) are invited to join this higher-level course to discuss critical thinking as it pertains to developing a plan of care for the complex voice patient.

Several case studies will be discussed in class with the goal of establishing a hierarchy of decision-making and planning.

The class will work from a skills checklist and then determine how and when the singing teacher may participate in the remediation process.
