Growing a Singer: Resourcing, nurturing, troubleshooting

'An exciting day with five enlightened singing teachers sharing their expertise'

  • Dr. Jenevora Williams asks the question why do we sing? Humans have evolved to sing both individually and in groups in order to facilitate emotional expression, to promote well-being and to engender group identity. Her presentation will summarise some of the research into singing and well-being and explore the evolutionary theories behind these findings.

  • Fiona Dobie will present an interactive session on ‘Tapping’. This evidence based technique uses gentle tapping on Chinese accupressure points combined with modern psychology. It can be used as a self-help tool to help people become free from the limiting effects of any negative emotions.

  • Sally Burgess will present ideas to help a singer utlilise all the different information which they accumulate during their training. She will suggest ways of synthesizing this informaton with confidence and strength, thus giving the singer the ability to perform with imagination, spontaneity and innovation.

  • Dr. Gillyanne Kayes will speak about the role of the singing teacher in Post-rehabilitation work. She will share case histories and talk about the journeys the singers have had to make.

  • Rebecca Moseley-Morgan will chair a discussion forum on issues currently facing singing teachers.
