What we offer?

The art of singing has been taught for generations without the benefit of evidence-based science to underpin it. Due to recent developments in spectrographic software, ultrasound, fibre optic and endoscopic technology, it has become possible to view the voice and build a science-based understanding of how it works. This knowledge does not replace the empiric writings of the old masters but rather enhances our understanding of past teaching methods.

Classical Voice Training was formed in order to bring this modern understanding to as wide an audience as possible. Classical Voice Training’s directors are Professor Janice Chapman (internationally renowned singing teacher), James Platt (International Soloist & Teacher) and Andrew Follin (Certified Master Teacher of Estill Voice Training).

Based on Professor Chapman’s groundbreaking book ‘Singing and Teaching Singing – a Holistic Approach to Classical Voice’, our courses will focus on: Breathing and Support, Accent Method breathing, Postural Alignment, Vocal Anatomy and Physiology, Phonation, Resonance, Articulation, Mind-skills for Performers and Artistry and Performance.

Our courses contain body/voice warm-ups, lectures, small practice groups, masterclasses and interactive discussion sessions. Our courses are suitable for singers (solo and choral), singing teachers, vocal coaches, choral directors and voice professionals.

Our course price includes a our cutting edge, comprehensive 160 page workbook.  The Workbook contains the latest scientific research distilled for the student and teacher to use in the studio and our comprehensive list of vocal exercises.
