Director of the Janette Ogg Voice Research Center and Associate Professor of Voice (Baritone) and Vocal Pedagogy David Meyer, D.M., co-authored two articles in the May/June edition of the Journal of Singing, the peer-reviewed journal published by the National Association of Teachers of Singing. In the first article, “Practical Science in the Studio: High-tech Strategies,” advances in measuring vocal acoustic and aerodynamics are discussed as they relate to the training of singers. The second article, “Motor Learning and Teaching Singing: An Overview,” presents a fact-based framework to improve the teaching and learning of singing.
These articles mark the end of an unusually active publishing year for Dr. Meyer. During the pandemic, he co-authored seven journal articles in three international journals. Topics included two articles on the COVID-19 pandemic and its effects on singers (Journal of Voice), an article on how singing in choral settings can benefit persons with Parkinson’s disease (Australian Voice Journal), and four articles on how science can practically improve the training of singers (Journal of Singing).
