‘Everybody benefits!...an accessible and beautifully illustrated text. This is a
must-read book for everyone in teaching, not just those in music!’
Professor Graham Welch, Institute of Education. University College London
Around the world, teachers still do not get adequate information and training about how to take care of their voices.
VocalChoices helps teachers, along with their pupils, go through a series of simple exercises on a regular basis in order to maintain a healthy voice, whether for speaking or singing, and to be ready to focus on the school day.
Developed over many years, piloted at the Institute of Education, University College London, and accepted as part of the Department of Health and the Arts Council of Great Britain Prospectus for Arts and Health 2007, the package comprises a book and video with background information, explanations and benefits of each exercise, and demonstrations of how to do them.
VocalChoices is a proven aid to vocal health, confidence and communication skills, and is essential to teachers and their pupils, in both mainstream and special needs education, in order to take best care of their voices.
