Dr Ron Morris has much to offer teachers at all stages of their careers. Whether you are fairly new to singing teaching or have much experience, there is always something new to learn, some new insight to gain, some unforeseen “light bulb moment” to be had. His teaching style is open, inclusive and immensely clear. All that he has to offer is backed up with deep and insightful scientific knowledge.
This year’s Vocal Pedagogy Course will concentrate on the practical application of pedagogical knowledge. Morning sessions will be devoted to the theory and use of Janice Chapman’s pedagogical model with this year’s course having a focus on phonation and resonance.
Afternoon sessions will consist of exercises suitable for all ages and stages of vocal development. The course will include work on Accent Method and ways to link this valuable tool into singing. There will also be practical work with students in a masterclass format. Course participants may take an active part in these sessions if they wish.
This course will be of particular interest and relevance to singers (both professional and advanced students), singing teachers, conductors and all those working with the singing voice. It will also be appropriate for those who attended last year’s course.
The course will meet for registration at 4 PM on Thursday 26th July and will finish by 5 PM on Saturday 28th July.
Course members are invited to stay on for a buffet supper and the opening concert of Musicfest 2018, featuring the ‘cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason (BBC Young Musician of the Year 2017) and the Orion Orchestra.
The cost of the course is £300. Rooms with en-suite facilities in a University hall of residence are available for an additional cost.
