SOVTs (Semi-occluded vocal tract postures or exercises) have become widely used by singing teachers and voice therapists.

Professor Nix's presentation will begin by defining and describing the various kinds of SOVTs, sharing a classification system he has developed.

Following this, he will discuss how to use vowels during SOVTs, including which vowels to use with specific SOVTS and in specific situations.

Finally, using practical examples, he will discuss which SOVT to use given a particular technical issue.
