Saturday 9th June 9.30am – 5.30pm

Join VoiceScienceWorks and BAST Training for a one-of-a-kind weekend workshop that brings contemporary research on the voice and translates it into directly applicable information so that you, the vocal teacher and professional, can immediately apply it in your practice.
Laurel Irene and Dr. David Harris, co-creators of voicescienceworks.org, will present interactive, engaging and playful sessions that bring you and your studio to a new and intimate level with using voice analyzer technology, gamification as a tool to share complex information in the field of voice science, and new research in neuroscience and listening practices designed to help you deepen into tried and true vocology principals.
“Laurel and David knocked it outta the park! The knowledge that both of them have is phenomenal…I felt as if I walked through an experience with them; rather than just listened to a lecture. “ Keeleen Miskin, music theater coach and voice educator, Atlanta, Georgia
For singers of all styles, actors, teachers, sound and industry professionals, this workshop brings a fresh approach to the teaching voice, training the ear and the brain, and mastering voice technology as a revolutionary tool in the learning process.
All registrants will receive a 50% discount on VoceVista Pro Voice Analyzer Software. We highly recommend that all participants have a working copy of VoceVista Pro for the session.
“Amazing!!! It was absolutely fabulous; I wish I could work with David and Laurel on a consistent basis and can’t wait until I can attend another workshop! It was fascinating and opened my eyes to new options in terms of both pedagogy and thinking about my own singing.” Kelly Ash, musician and educator, Seattle, Washington
