Pre-Conference Workshop 1: Teaching the Singer Songwriter

June 26, 2020, 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM

Presenters: Marcelle Gauvin and Matthew Edwards 
Price per person is $55 (and not included with conference registration rate)

Location: Knoxville Convention Center, Second Floor, 200 ABC

Training singers who write their own music requires a different mindset in the studio. Story reigns supreme and vocal technique is viewed as a way to unlock the voice so that the story can be told more effectively. Preconceived tonal goals and standard vocal exercises are not enough to take a student to the next level in this context. Instead, the teacher must address the needs of the person they are working with, help them pursue their tonal goals, and free their vocal mechanism so that they can focus on connecting with their audience. This pre-conference workshop will introduce participants to new ways to think outside the box when a singer-songwriter comes into the room and will include brief sample sessions with several singer songwriters applying the methods and processes outlined in the workshop.
