This 90 minute webinar will focus on vocal exercise design for both classical and contemporary voice teachers. Professor Nix will discuss the difference between warmups and exercises, pedagogical considerations in exercise design (including motor learning, muscle development and age/experience considerations), as well as illustrating these discussion points with practical examples. This webinar will be interactive, with opportunity for questions throughout.
This free webinar is available to all financial members of ANATS.
