“Vocal technique is not my first competence but I am often in the position of needing to teach it. I felt that my own singing improved during these six weeks. It was wonderful to have official instruction on vocabulary and practices. Having this available in the summer, and online, was amazing. I’ve already incorporated some techniques in my choral rehearsals. — 2023 Vocal Pedagogy student
