   (0 reviews)

Hello, Voice Community!

I am pleased to announce the Voice Foundation's 2nd Annual World Voice Day Celebration!

Please join us for any or all of the following events:

Tuesday, April 14, 2009 8pm THE VOICE FOUNDATION PRESENTS IN HONOR OF WORLD VOICE DAY A MASTER CLASS WITH MELISSA CROSS

My voice teacher won't teach me that!

Finally! A solution for the frustrated vocal student's most common complaint against their classical or musical theatre-based teacher: the struggle to find relevance in training that doesn't translate to the genre in which the student strives to succeed. In an essential evening for voice teachers and voice students, New York City teacher Melissa Cross, will enlighten and entertain even the mildly interested about the voice and how the world of vocal instruction has been polarized by the rising success of commercial music.

Cross will present a forward-thinking lexicon of vocal terminology that bridges the gap between long-accepted voice pedagogy and its contextual equivalents in commercial music. By exploring the technical similarities and stylistic differences between genres (classical, rock, pop, metal, etc.), confusion will be cleared to dismiss the judgmental thinking that has alienated vocal instructors and students. Come and learn the three tools of vocal expression in the modern world and the ways in which a modern vocalist can benefit from centuries of voice wisdom!

Melissa has appeared on NPR Radio, The Discovery Channel, Smithsonian TV, Late Night with Conan O'Brian, MSNBC, VH1, and MTV, as well as in countless international and national publications. (www.melissacross.com )
