"Do you hear what I hear?"

The neuroscience of hearing, perception, and acoustics for singers

This course is designed to provide information about the variables that influence supraglottic activity in singing and why this activity should not be necessarily considered as a sign of vocal hyperfunction.

Trends in Teaching CCM Singing

This interactive lecture and question/answer session will center on the research process and findings of the book Training Contemporary Commercial Singers(Compton, 2020). The author will share insights to the development process and what it was like to collaborate with 26 highly accomplished pedagogues and contributors. This book is the first to identify and synthesize “trends” within the field of popular singing voice pedagogy, and we will discuss key findings. Course participants are invited to ask questions and engage in dialogue regarding the research process and results.
