Description

Vocal Health and Confidence for Teachers

An interactive session to help you stay vocally healthy, strong and inspired!

Janet Shell has been both a classroom teacher and a professional singer and leads workshops in vocal health and confidence to establish helpful patterns around your vocal use and shows how to balance voice use across speech and song. A highly experienced singing teacher, Janet shows how to use this knowledge in an immediately practical way. This session aims to enhance the work of both the teacher in the classroom and the singing workshop leader by understanding how one impacts upon the other.

The session covers the spoken voice and the singing voice and will cover topics including:

  • Find out what your current vocal habits are around speech
  • Discover our universal voice characteristics
  • Learn what is helpful for using our voice efficiently and understand what we tend to do that is unhelpful
  • A look at vocal cords in action
  • Enabling our physique for speaking and singing
  • Basic voice mechanics – what do we need to do in order to sing? (breathing, posture, resonance, tensions)
  • A run through a set of warm up exercises as we prepare to sing
  • Finding your voice!
  • Helping students find their voice
  • Boys’ voices vs girls’ voices
