This workshop is open to everyone. 


This workshop will address acoustic, physiologic, and pedagogic aspects of voice research for members of both the scientific and music communities.  It is organized in conjunction with the Distinguished Lecture of the preeminent singing voice acoustician Johan Sundberg (which will take place on 22 January 2009).  The morning session will address acoustical aspects of voice research and its use in voice pedagogy, while the afternoon session will be more related to physiological and pedagogic aspects.  We hope to engage invited guests and the audience in several discussion sessions.


Registration is on a first-come first-served basis (30-35 seats).  Please register here:
