Dates and Fees
Rebecca is currently chair of Education for the British Voice Association, an associate lecturer in voice at Bath Spa University and has a busy voice studio in Oxford. She gives workshops throughout the UK on the functionality of the voice, accent breathing and vocal care and maintenance. She is an adjudicator for the British and International Federation of Festivals. Last year she wrote a module entitled ‘an introduction to voice science’ for Bath spa University.
In her early career, Rebecca won scholarships to the Royal College of Music and Opera School and sung professionally at Glyndebourne, WNO and Opera 80 amongst others. As a soloist, she has performed throughout the UK and Europe.
Rebecca has an MA is musicology and is currently nearing the end of her PhD research at UCL. Her research investigates what interventions can maintain the functionality of the mature female voice. Early findings are statistically significant and support the hypotheses that the vocal competency of the mature female singer can be sustained through effective pedagogy.
She has presented her research at conferences throughout Europe and has recently presented the early findings from her research at the PEVoC 12 conference in Ghent. Most recently she was runner up in the prestigious Van Lawrence prize for voice research.
This interactive two-day workshop will guide you through the symptoms of the ageing voice and will explore teaching strategies to mitigate the impact of ageing. This weekend will consist of a journey through evidence-based primary research conducted by Rebecca Moseley-Morgan as well as corroborating primary and secondary research.
The two-day course will consist of:
The decline in respiratory function.
Atrophy of the laryngeal cartilage and stiffness in the laryngeal tissue.
Lowering of the fundamental frequency and loss of range.
Increased breathiness giving rise to poor onsets.
Vocal fatigue, lack of stamina.
Increased tension in the laryngeal structure giving rise to pressed phonation.

What impact do these consequences have on vocal function and can systematic and targeted training of the ageing voice maintain its’ functionality.
