Returning Guest, Shannon Coates discusses her new online course: The Vocal Instrument 101. A fun and inspiring conversation about continuing education and diving into the science, anatomy and physiology of singing. (Please note: There is occasional â€œcrackleâ€ in the recording due to internet connection issues, but the voices are clear.)
A few years back, after having taught at a music school and running my own voice studio, I went ahead and got a doctorate in voice pedagogy from the University of Toronto. Now, in addition to being an independent voice teacher, I teach undergraduate voice pedagogy courses at a few universities in Southern Ontario. The Vocal Instrument 101 is a distillation of the information I wish I could download (Matrix-style) to my own voice students, to my voice pedagogy students, and to my voice teaching colleagues who didn’t have a chance to go get a doctorate in voice pedagogy (because: ain’t nobody got time for that!).
