Training Baby Belters & Beyond-
Marci Rosenberg CCM Summer Pedagogy Institute Online Course- 2024
This course will provide a comprehensive overview for any singer or singing teacher wanting to develop or deepen the science-informed knowledge base and skills needed to train younger or beginner belters efficiently and safely.
Course content will be delivered through asynchronous lectures, real-time virtual discussion/ Q&A, and real-time interactive workshop format focused on applying all covered concepts in a studio setting.
Included in this course is a comprehensive introduction to semi-occluded vocal tract exercises (SOVT) and how these can be used to facilitate safe, sustainable belting.
The workshops will also discuss numerous variations of strengthening and conditioning exercises, including selected exercises from The Vocal Athlete: Application and Technique for the Hybrid Singer (workbook), 3rd Ed. with discussion on how to use these tools when teaching belt and mix. Strategies to minimize vocal fatigue and the risk of phonotrauma will also be targeted, including tools and strategies to screen for potential emerging problems.
At the end of this course, participants will have a general, science-informed framework and understanding of how to implement the concepts and exercises covered to train and develop a safe, sustainable belting quality for beginners, intermediate, and more advanced belters. This course pairs well with Dr. Wendy LeBorgne's Voice Disorders Course.
The 3rd Edition of The Vocal Athlete and The Vocal Athlete: Application and Technique for the Hybrid Singer (workbook) is arriving in late Spring or early summer and will be used for this course. The text will be The Vocal Athlete: Application and Technique for the Hybrid Singer (workbook), 3rd Ed. The 3rd edition has 30 new invited authors. Please note the 2nd edition can also be a great resource if you have recently purchased it.
