Collaboration with Kings College London

Voice teachers’ practices in the one-to-one voice lesson

The study being conducted in vocal metaphor in the voice lesson will provide the basis for a collaboration with the School of Education, Communication and Society at Kings College London. This study will focus on lesson observation and observing how voice teachers adapt in the lesson to compromise between their own teaching style and goals and their students’ needs.

Call for Participants:

Voice teachers’ practices in the one-to-one voice lesson

This research project investigates the practices of voice teachers to determine how their background, preferred teaching style, and interaction with students shapes a lesson. Further, we would like to explore what affects the course of a voice lesson, such as teacher and students goals, previous education experience, or possible compromises made while teaching.

This research involves a questionnaire and follow-up interview, with voluntary additional lesson observations. 

If you are a voice teacher and would like to participate in this study, please complete the questionnaire in the link below.

It will take about 10-15 minutes to complete this questionnaire, followed by a 30-minute interview with one of the project leads. If you would like to participate in lesson observations, please indicate this as well!

If you have any further questions about this project, feel free to contact Anja Stumpf ( or Courtney Reed (
