Pedagogy in Perspective: Developing the Gospel/Soul Singer with Trineice Robinson-Martin - Tuesday 18th August, starting 4pm (UK time)
This 2 hour workshop will specifically delve into the style of gospel/soul music from both a pedagogic and singers’ perspective. Pedagogy in Perspective relates to the identification of generic components of music expression commonly found in folk-based African-American music styles.
Dr. Trineice Robinson-Martin has dedicated her career to performing and developing resources for teaching jazz, gospel/christian, R&B, rock, country, and pop singing styles in an applied/private voice lesson setting.
She completed her doctoral work at Teachers College Columbia University. Dr. Trineice holds master degrees in music education and jazz studies from Teachers College and Indiana University-Bloomington, respectively, B.A. from San Jose State University, and is a Level III Certified Instructor in Somatic Voicework™ The LoVetri Method. Dr. Trineice holds faculty positions at Princeton University as the jazz voice instructor and director of the Jazz Vocal Collective Ensembles I and II. She serves on the National Faculty in the academic division of Gospel Music Workshop of America, and serves as the Executive Director of the African American Jazz Caucus, Inc.
Based on her graduate research, Dr. Trineice created Soul Ingredients®, a teaching methodology for developing a singer’s musical style/interpretation in African-American folk based music styles (i.e. jazz, gospel, R&B, blues, etc). This methodology shows students how to take their personal experiences, musical influences and models, and execute the different components in a manner that is personal to the singer/performer’s own personal expression.
As an accomplished performer, teacher, and scholar, Dr. Trineice has traveled and taught students from all over the world and lectures nationally and internationally on a variety of Soul Ingredients® topics. Her performance experience spans a variety of musical styles, venues and settings: the intimacy of private parties and local clubs, the grand stages of musical arts centers and large music festivals, and international stages. She has performed with concert choirs and chorales, large and small jazz ensembles, Latin music ensembles, corporate bands, a POP orchestra, and R&B groups, including international R&B recording group CHANGE and Standing in the Shadows of Motown Live.
She has taught music appreciation, music history, graduate level vocal jazz improvisation, applied vocal lessons and vocal coaching at both the graduate and undergraduate level.
Dr. Trineice has authored for Journal of Singing, and has a chapter on gospel music pedagogy in “Teaching Singing in the 21st Century.” Look out for her upcoming publications: “Voice Training for the Gospel Soloist: Training the Voice,” and “So You Want To Sing Gospel” as part of the NATS book series.
