Associate Professor of Voice, Coordinator of Musical Theatre Voice and Artistic Director of the Contemporary Commercial Music (CCM) Vocal Pedagogy Institute Matt Edwards ’15, D.M.A., was one of 26 voice teachers from around the world featured in a new book titled “Training Contemporary Singers” by Elizabeth Benson. Teachers were identified for inclusion through an international survey.
According to the publisher, “Elizabeth Ann Benson has interviewed 26 expert CCM pedagogues working with leading CCM and musical theatre singers around the world, incorporating established teaching methodologies (including, among others, Speech Level Singing™ (SLS); Somatic Voicework™ The LoVetri Method; and Lisa Popeil’s Voiceworks®) as well as eclectic and independent pedagogical approaches . . . This is not so much a ‘how to’ but more of a ‘how I’; it gives you, in a single volume, the collective wisdom of some of the world’s very best pedagogues — in studio and in academe — and helps you apply best practices in your teaching.”
