First Thursdays: Vocal Health for Studio Music Teachers
Presented by Meryl Jackson-Kew OAM
As music educators, we use our voice to sing and give instructions all day long. When teaching online, many of noticed that this caused even more strain on the voice as we sought to project it more than usual. Keeping your voice healthy is really important! We want to avoid it going hoarse and especially to avoid any long term damage.
In today's First Thursday, the first of the year, singing teacher Meryl Jackson-Kew OAM will show how to keep your voice healthy, ensuring longevity of your voice and teaching career.
These regular professional development sessions were originally the brainchild of MTA Member Annette Allerding, who wanted music teachers to be able to meet and share ideas. Originally named Keys, Cakes and Conversation (KCC) the group went online during Covid, and eventually reached numbers often in excess of 50 teachers, meeting each month on Zoom. The Music Teachers' Association of NSW is delighted to bring these sessions into our fold. We want the sessions to continue to be free to our members, but we also believe it is important to pay presenters for their valuable time. So we ask you to consider a giving a donation towards the costs if you are able. You will be given the option to donate when you book your place.
