Excitement continues to build for the second year of the LoVetri Institute for Somatic Voicework™ at Baldwin Wallace University in July in Berea, Ohio. Participants are arriving from Australia, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, France, Spain, the United Kingdom and all over the USA. Many people are also returning to review the course because the information is always presented in a new way, and new things arise as participants ask questions.

Where else can you find an organized and respected method for teaching singing backed up by Jeanie LoVetri’s 47 years of experience and by outside experts in multiple vocal disciplines for a very low price? The original Vocal Pedagogy Training for Contemporary Commercial Music, Somatic Voicework™, in its newly revised and expanded form, was a tremendous hit last summer. The course has garnered rave reviews from singing teachers since 2002. The interest in learning a codified, vetted method to address CCM styles has always been very strong and continues to grow. Many classical singing teachers find the functional approach to teaching greatly helpful to their own work and compatible with what they do. It isn’t necessary to “re-do” your own classical singing to learn how to effectively approach CCM styles. Jazz vocalists report that it helps them with pitch accuracy, freedom, phrasing and vocal stamina. Music theater singers find it explains in a simple manner how to switch styles and choral music educators are able to get their choirs to sing in a unified blend in just minutes.
For those who have completed all three Levels prior to 2018, our special guest is Dr. Claudio Milstein of the Cleveland Clinic, who will be presenting an Intensive on Vocal Health during Level III. The course is designed for singing teachers and is only for graduates of Somatic Voicework™ Level Three prior to 2018. (more details later in the newsletter)
Somatic (meaning “of the body”) experts Suzan Postel of Los Angeles and Peter Shor from West Virginia have dozens of years of expertise behind them and are recognized experts in their own right, will be offering valuable information about being in touch with our bodies in unique ways. Insight into our own posture, movement, sensation and coordination and the consequent heightened awareness it provides, is deeply rooted in Somatic Voicework™. Jeanie LoVetri is delighted to bring these two bodywork experts to the course.
