Vocal Rehabilitation Workshops
Alison's vocal rehabilitation workshops are designed to give an insight into the techniques she employs in this type of work. They explore some of the pathologies that present most frequently in the voice clinic as well as the techniques used to ensure safe recovery. Whether voice clinicians, singing teachers, conductors, voice coaches or amateur singers, she gives delegates practical tips to take away and use in their own practice, especially with a view to recognising and addressing voice strain before pathology occurs.
FEEDBACK FROM THE CANTO LECTURE SERIES
"The Singing Rehabilitation Coach in the Voice Clinic" (June 2015)
'Alison Mary Sutton speaks with absolute knowledge within her field of expertise. She explained her work with passion & humility, giving credit to the team of specialists she works with. The stroboscope images she presented, along with her explanation of how she helped rehabilitate clients to regain full vocal health, were extraordinary. Her techniques were concise & easy to follow & the practical exercises we did were instantly beneficial. I will now be including these in my singing studio. I look forward to more of the same at her November workshop.'
"The Singing Rehabilitation Coach at Work" (Nov 2015)
'Fascinating, skill building, confirming good practice, confidence-building, reassuring, as singing teaching can be a lonely business!!'
'I learned something which I can work with. That's fundamental, but needed to be explained and experienced. This workshop fulfilled my needs at present.'
'I found the session to be very informative and interesting, especially as a sufferer of vocal paralysis.'
'We need a follow up day to take it further!'
