Electives: These sessions are throughout the event and most will be 50 minutes long, though some are 110 minutes long. The electives are stand-alone classes that do not have other courses connected to them.

Show Me Your Overtones

Feedback form is now closed.
Sounds are waves, but what does that mean? What are overtones? What do they look like and why are they important? This roundtable discussion will focus on visualizing your voice. We will talk about overtones and visualizing them in spectrograms. These are great, simple tools to learn about your voice and what happens when we sing together. Afterwards, Drs. Bitzer, Powell, and Dougherty will discuss questions and the benefits this technology provides for singing.
