Classical Voice Training's 2020

Flagship 5-Day Courses

and

Advanced 1-Day Workshops

Following the outstanding success and unprecedented demand for places on our Flagship courses from teachers and singers in 2019, we are delighted to announce that we will not only continue with our portfolio of two separately focussed courses - SATS for Teachers and SATS for Performers - but also the addition of two Advanced one day Workshops.

SATS Advanced Workshops

March 29th - 30th, 2020 at Guildhall School of Music and Drama, London

These two workshops are designed for teachers and singers who have taken pedagogy courses before and would like to update their skills. The aim is to explain complex concepts in a clear and concise manner and provide singers and teachers with practical exercises that they can use in their studio.

Our two evidenced-based workshops will present the latest information on:

 

Sunday 29th March

Primal Sound: From Accent Method Breathing into Breathing & Support for Singing

This workshop will explore the evolution of Accent Method therapy, originally designed as a tool for speakers, but now modified into a powerful training tool for singers. We will explain how to use Primal Sound to bridge between ‘pure’ Accent Method breathing and supported singing.

 

Monday 30th March

Laryngeal and Acoustic Registration & Vocal Acoustics

Registration is often one of the most contentious issues to discuss in classical voice. The SATS model simplifies registration by considering it from two perspectives: scientific and singing registers.

The latest research into voice acoustics confirms this model by demonstrating that  register events can be laryngeal and/or acoustic.

Cost

£150 per workshop OR book both workshops for the reduced rate of £275

SATS for Teachers

Monday 10th - Friday 14th August, 2020 at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire

Our newly redesigned 5-day flagship course for teachers takes place at a brand new venue for us - the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire.

This SATS course has been specifically tailored for the diverse number of teachers we welcome each year. With a greater focus on developing diagnostic skills and the application of the SATS model in the vocal studio, our 5 day SATS for Teachers course is perfect for any voice teacher who wants a practical and hands-on approach to working with their students.

A key feature of this course is our innovative guided teaching masterclasses where you will take part in a differential diagnosis of a range of performers of varying backgrounds and experiences, discussing any apparent issues and remedies, deciding on the best approach, then reviewing progress - all under the guidance of the Directors.

In addition to the practical skills you will develop on this course, you will also receive Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points.

Cost

£1,100 Early Bird price before 14/2/20. Regular price will be £1,250.

2019 Performers Course

Fifty performers (our largest number ever!) joined us from ten different countries, and as far afield as Mexico and Hong Kong at Eastbourne College on England's beautiful South coast. The emphasis was very firmly on practice with workshops, masterclasses and one to one lessons with a variety of teachers and practitioners.

2017 Guildhall Course

We returned to the Guildhall School of Music and Drama for our second 5-day flagship course in the summer of 2017. This was also a great success with people travelling from all over the world to attend.  This was the first course on which we offered one-to-one sessions. These proved overwhelmingly popular, with demand for sessions outweighing the number of sessions on offer.  Book on our next course to avoid disappointment.
