Older Learners Ep. 3

Episode Summary

Keeping learning fresh at any age.

Episode Notes

What are some things to remember for older learners in regards to receptivity and staying curious about singing? Suspending judgement can be a way to keep the process novel and fresh, regardless of the singer’s level or age. What is the value of mindfulness in a voice lesson? How can we be more present to the experience of the voice lesson? Recognizing the process of mastery is helpful to gain clarity of guiding our students to greater success. A tangential conversation about Uta Hagen closes out the episode and its value for the training of the singer actor, and the value of recitals and their place in the life of a singer.
