THE ART OF TEACHING
voice ped for real life
You know that that’s what “pedagogy” is, right?
… the art, science, or profession of teaching …
“I spent years teaching voice based on imagery. When I retired from classroom teaching and had time to take some courses, I felt like I had missed out on the past 20 years of voice research. At first I was intimidated by all the technical terminology but after working with you I realized that even if you know all of the anatomy and physiology (and can teach it!), the need to communicate and to acknowledge how things feel (and – yes! – to use imagery) is still more important than getting too “sciencey”. Thank you for all that you do!”
“Shannon helped me get really specific about providing concise feedback to my students during their voice lessons. This meant less talking for me and more singing for my students; not to mention more meaningful instructions and better results from my singers! Win, win!”
“The TVI101 gave me an opportunity to dive into learning in a hands-on, non-traditional way that sparked my excitement, interest, and curiosity. I feel valuable. I am finding new sounds within myself. I am finding myself practicing more, making plans, and dreaming. I am literally full of happiness because I feel I have found something special in what Shannon offers to people like me (aka voice teachers who have not received their doctorate in voice but are successfully working in the field).”
