TEACHING AT INTERNATIONAL INTERFAITH GOSPEL MUSIC CONFERENCEI'm excited to be included on the faculty of the International Interfaith Gospel Music Conference being held in Oakland, CA April 27-19, 2017. I'll be teaching vocal health and technique to singers from all over the world. Here's the summary of the sessions:
Vocal Health and Technique
How to work with different parts (registers) of your voice, sing through your range without breaks, release excess tension, and how to use different “colors” in your voice to express authentic emotion. Learn best practices to keep your voice healthy. Come prepared to sing. All levels.
