Abstract

Classically trained voice teachers face unique challenges in today's college voice studios. Students are increasingly interested and required to sing in musical theatre styles. The Contemporary Commercial Music (CCM) Vocal Pedagogy Institute addresses this issue by teaching classical voice teachers musical theatre-style singing pedagogy. Started by Jeanette LoVetri, it is a body-based system of training for all styles of singing. A few course objectives covered included: learn an organized pedagogical approach based upon vocal function and principles of voice science and medicine; examine "belting" and the term "mix"; educate the eyes and ears about the healthy use of the voice in any CCM style; and sing in the three main registers.
