I have always believed that understanding how young voices work from a physical and pedagogical point of view is extremely important, not only just for training solo voices but also for choral directors and school music teachers. It was an honour for Mississauga Childrens’ Choir to host a teachers’ workshop with Dr. Shannon Coates as our guest clinician. Dr. Coates was such a dynamic presenter with lots of helpful information for our participants. It was especially interesting to me to discover what is reasonable to expect from young voices and why (from a physiological point of view) which will help me to select appropriate choral repertoire for my choristers. I would recommend Dr. Coates to anyone/organization who would like to learn more about how to teach/engage young voices. Thank you for being our guest clinician and we look forward to having you with us again soon!!”
