Breakout Session

From Puccini to P!nk: Helping the Classically Trained Female Sing Pop

Saturday, June 27

Presenter: Timothy Carson

Classically trained females who want to sing pop music face some of the greatest challenges of any developing singer. They are required to adopt new vocal coordination and develop approaches to their musical expression that often oppose the “rules” for classical singing. Their journey in developing in this new genre is not merely an adaptation of their classical background, but requires them to establish new skills and coordination in an art form that is as different as it is similar to the one they have learned. This session will provide practical tools for the female classically trained singer to develop the necessary techniques and style to be successful in the world of pop music, and to do so using established techniques that promote vocal health and longevity.
