IVACON 2018 in Edinburgh

Every year, I attend a teachers’ conference organised by the institute i am with – Institute for Vocal Advancement. This year’s IVACON was held in the sunny capital of Scotland, Edinburgh 😉

This is a week of networking with teachers from all over the world – I am the only Maltese certified with this institute and of course intensive teacher training, consisting of lectures like: Teaching beginning singers; lots of practical-based learning sessions with our Master Teachers; dealing with various types of issues in the voice, etc.  Continuing education in this field is important, it keeps you abreast of what is going on in vocal science and helps you improve every day as a teacher.

Bring on IVACON 2019…

One of the highlights was attending a fantastic master class ‘Breaking down the riffs’ with Broadway star Natalie Weiss. She was also part of the ensemble for the pre-recordings of The Greatest Showman. What a great voice and inspirational person!
