A closer look at the Laryngeal Musculature with Jenevora Williams - Sunday 23rd August, 10am to 3pm (UK time)
This day is primarily designed for our MA students but it may also be useful to anyone else with an interest in the laryngeal mechanism. The day will involve a close examination of the laryngeal musculature and its impact on voicing.
Dr Jenevora Williams is a passionate pedagogue and a leading exponent in the field of vocal health and singing teaching. She was the first singing teacher to be awarded a PhD in voice science in the UK and won the 2010 BVA Van Lawrence Prize for her outstanding contribution to voice research. Her book and DVD Teaching Singing to Children and Young Adults has sold several thousand copies worldwide.
As voice science is a relatively young discipline, she has engaged in pioneering work at a grass roots level through the delivery of innovative lectures on Vocal Health, Performance Anxiety, Vocal Pedagogy, Teaching Young Singers, Voice Acoustics, and Teaching Studio Communication Style for bodies such as the British Voice Association, British Association for Performing Arts Medicine (BAPAM) and the Association of Teachers of Singing. She wrote the first Vocal Pedagogy syllabus for a university-accredited MA.
Some of her teaching work is in vocal rehabilitation; she offers guidance for singers who may have challenges with vocal health or technique. Jenevora’s PhD research looked into the vocal health of intensively trained child singers.
