PRACTICAL ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY
for Singers and Singing Teachers
with Prof. Dane Chalfin
This highly interactive two-day course takes a holistic and incremental journey through the anatomy and physiology of the singing voice. Though thorough and evidence-based, this course aims to take what can sometimes be complex concepts and make them easily accessible, practical and applicable to your existing pedagogy in any genre.
Each section will start with visual examples of the relevant anatomy followed by practical exercises to explore various functional options. There will be audio, video and hands-on exploration throughout. Participants will leave with lots of practical exercise work they can incorporate into their current practice.
This course is ideal for singers who want a better understanding of their own voice, singing teachers who are new to science or want to refresh on the latest information, and speech therapists working with singers.
