Gillyanne and Jeremy candidly share their philosophies on a “one size fits all” and a “one method” approach to teaching singers. They believe these approaches do not take into consideration the student as a human being who has a spirit, emotions and physicality, and is not just a larynx. They stress the importance of a multi-faceted approach when working with a unique creative vocal artist in the voice studio. Gillaynne and Jeremy believe that context is everything, and discuss how this can also be applied to voice science.
In celebration of World Voice Day, Gillyanne and Jeremy stress the need for teachers to understand the significance of self-care and to acknowledge their personal self-care needs in order to best serve their students. They deliver their inspirational message regarding the importance of fostering healthy mindful connections and collaboration within our teaching voice community. Be kind to yourselves and to others.
