Whole Lotta Shakin’ Going On – Vibrato & the Singing Voice with John Nix

Vibrato and non-vibrato singing are used in musical styles around the world.  How both types of singing are produced, however, is not widely understood by teachers of singing and choral music directors.  The dissemination of accurate information on vibrato and non-vibrato production could transform how these essential vocal skills are taught.  The presentation will review the mechanisms at work in vibrato and non-vibrato singing, present the fruits of several years of surveys and lab based research on vibrato, and provide suggestions for applying this knowledge to successful teaching.
