IN SUPPORT OF FACT-BASED VOICE PEDAGOGY AND TERMINOLOGY

The Academy states that singing teachers and other voice professionals have a responsibility to expand teaching skills through a clearer understanding of a twenty-first century, fact-based and functional voice pedagogy and terminology that is consonant with the laws of nature.  Fostering a common nomenclature is imperative.  Fact-based voice pedagogy provides the foundation that supports the artistic journey of the singer.

This paper includes brief descriptions of cognition, breathing, phonation, resonation, registration and articulation. Additionally, a brief description of the history of voice pedagogy is included. Note that AATS addressed this issue in previous publications, including a 1969 pamphlet.  It is expected that ongoing research will bring even more revelations about the art of singing.
