The Voice Culture

An Ideal Curriculum for Singers?

Episode Summary

Peter T. Harrison, the British pedagogue, and his proposed comprehensive training for singing artists.

Episode Notes

What would the ideal non-academic vocal curriculum look like? Brian and Justin explore just such an idea in this episode. Based on the work of British pedagogue Peter T. Harrison, a vocal training program would include much that remains outside the scope of the present academic model. Taken from Harrison's 2013 book, "Singing: Personal and performance values in training" another way of considering voice training is discussed for the modern voice student and independent voice trainer.

Harrison's books:

Singing: Personal and performance values in training

The Human Nature of the Singing Voice.
