Have you considered teaching voice lessons, but you're not sure where to start? Do you know what works for you as a singer or a teacher, but you don't understand the mechanics behind it? Join Dr. Amelia Rollings Bigler in this voice pedagogy intensive primer course that focuses on the basic and practical knowledge base needed to teach singing. Dr. Rollings Bigler will break down each topic in an understandable way that can be applied directly in the studio and classroom. Topics include...
