Voice Disorders: An Overview Of Common Pathologies And Indications For Management

Tuesday 11th October 2022, 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM (London Time)

Voice teachers and singers are invited to join this course to learn more about common vocal pathologies and their management.

Participants will learn the various zones of the vocal folds and how lesions within particular regions point toward (or away from)  problems with technique or overuse/misuse.

Learn when you or your student should see the voice specialist and when a second opinion is warranted.

And finally, learn about how to advocate for yourself and your students without straying from “your lane.”

Sorry, this is an archived short course...

We have plenty of upcoming short courses coming soon. See details of some of them below or look at the full list of short courses.
