Course: Singing Voice Rehabilitation 27.01.20
27 January 2020 | Queens University, Belfast, 10.00 – 5.30
This course is aimed at voice practitioners who already have a working knowledge of anatomy and function but who wish to gain a deeper understanding of voice disorders and post-clinical voice rehabilitation. In order to take part in this day, it is essential to have completed the anatomy course from the previous day, or an equivalent elsewhere.
This is of particular interest to teachers who wish to understand the impact of vocal misuse in singers. It is also an ideal foundation for any singing teacher wishing to work within a multi-disciplinary voice clinic.
