Shannon is in conversation with Melanie at 8PM on Wed, 20th April and she’s talking about all of the things she picked up in academia that she can’t drop fast enough!
If you came through the ‘western-classical voice pipeline’ (that is, you took voice lessons in high school & learned some art songs or arias & maybe did some RCM grades, then you did a voice undergrad somewhere … ), or you studied with someone who did, chances are HIGH you picked up a few thoughts about the RIGHT/HEALTHY/BEST way to sing, and the BEST (like, MORALLY BEST) voice technique and the ONETRUEWAY to teach singing. I know I did. In this lively (how could it not be lively? have you even MET Melanie?) discussion, we’re gonna’ unpack a few of the nastier little zingers that we tend to pick up on our voice journeys, launch them into the abyss (metaphorically, obvs), and then forge some new zingers that better align with our own values AND more deeply affirm the voice users we work with. (It’s a #voicepedrev(solution), friend, and you’re so totally invited.)
