Feedback form is now closed.

This Seminar in Applied Vocal Instruction provides training for chorus directors, section leaders, and others who want to empower singers through individualized instruction. In Week 1, Rob Mance will explain how to identify the most common vocal inefficiencies and how to offer solutions, using teaching techniques that put singers at ease and promote a joyful, optimistic growth mindset. In Week 2, participants will practice giving and receiving PVIs (personal vocal instruction) in breakout sessions under the supervision of a Master Coach. Participants have the option to register as either Observers (who receive PVIs) or Apprentices (who give and receive PVIs).
