The Benefits of Mixing Vernacular and Classical Techniques in the Voice Studio

As singers and teachers, our job is to ensure healthy function for ourselves and for our students. Healthy voice production has a seemingly endless list of contributing factors, but my hope with this project is to show how musical theatre techniques can positively influence voice production, specifically in the classically oriented studio. Even if one does not pursue musical theatre as a career or regularly study the repertoire, practicing vocalises that use a variety of registration events on any pitch allows for the exploration of all the sounds the human voice can make. The text-driven nature of musical theatre can also give a technique-driven classical singer further permission to connect with the story of an aria or art song.
