Discussion of standards in voice teaching
If we don’t have standards as teachers, who will? Brian and Justin discuss standards of vocalism and musical style and how teachers can serve students to develop standards in themselves. The holism of the voice and the demands of the style are sometimes in conflict, so finding agreement is an important part of voice training. The college audition process is discussed as well as issues touching individualism versus collectivism. Students should be on a steady diet of the best of singing in all styles of music. An objective list of standards for singing is covered as well.
