Understanding acoustics and physiology can help us assess and fix vocal problems. But knowing how a car works is not the same thing as being able to drive it: a mechanic and a race car driver have distinct knowledge sets. In the past two decades, brain science has made great leaps in our understanding of how thought is translated into sound, with many unexpected insights uncovered. Combining their unique perspectives, Dr. Viskontas and Ms. Moss will team up to discuss how singers can integrate the latest ideas from neuroscience into their own singing and teaching.
