Dr Ron Morris has much to offer teachers at all stages of their careers. Whether you are fairly new to singing teaching or have a great deal of 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.
The course will cover the basics of vocal pedagogy including: vocal anatomy, alignment, breathing and support, and phonation. Each component will be illustrated with appropriate exercises and there will be an opportunity for questions and answers. This course will be of particular interest and relevance to singing teachers, singers (both professional and advanced students), conductors and all those working with the singing voice. The daily rate for this course is £30, or a reduced rate of £80 for all 3 sessions.
The teaching will be delivered online by Zoom. Zoom links will be sent by email the day before each session.
Numbers will be limited so early booking is advised. Booking via this web site
