From a humble beginning in a local choir to one of the most highly regarded vocal pedagogs in the UK and co-founder of the very popular The Naked Vocalist Podcast, Chris Johnson talks to Line Hilton about his journey from singing as a hobby to career. Eventually, his inclination to vocal geekery pulled him into teaching. Chris talks about his mistakes, challenges and victories, how he transitioned from being a small town teacher to running an oversubscribed London teaching studio. Chris also talks about his vocal issues and how he dealt with them physically and mentally. Chris talks about the benefits the podcast has had on his practice, how he deals with negative criticism and shares a little trick he’s learned to market his practice and increase bookings.
