Singing voice education


Singing voice consultation OR supervision for singing teachers

 If you are a singing teacher, you may miss the days when you were in school and could ask your vocal pedagogy teacher or colleagues for advice on your students.  It was like we all had access to grand rounds, and we learned it a lot doing it.     I can't tell you how often people reach out to me for advice related to their teaching. If this is something that you are interested in, I love talking voice students and would be happy to be of service to you.      Send me a video of your student, call me, email me, or any combination can work.  I am happy to be help!  

Clinical voice consultation OR supervision for Neurologic Music Therapists

 If you are a Neurologic Music Therapist, you may come across clients on your caseload with voice disorders.     If you want to refine your understanding of how to do Vocal Intonation Therapy®, Therapeutic Singing® or Oral-Motor and Respiratory Exercises®, or if you have a client that you feel  bit stuck with, or want some feedback on the great work that you are already doing, reach out.   Music therapists email me all the time for advice.  I am happy to be help!

Neurologic music therapy® is "an evidence-based treatment approach that implements music and rhythmic interventions to promote recovery and neuroplasticity. Musical intervention in speech rehabilitation is beneficial because it is one of the few modes of recovery that activates the whole brain simultaneously, promoting neuroplasticity and improving functional speech and language goals (i.e., speech rate, fluency, breath management, and respiratory strength)" (Thaut, 2005).    The Academy of Neurologic Music Therapy hosts multiple International Training Institutes each year.  The training is offered to allied professionals who are interested in gaining a deeper understanding of Neurologic Music Therapy® and to music therapists interested in utilizing NMT® methodology and techniques.     I am an assistant faculty member of the Academy providing lectures on Vocal Intonation Therapy® and Therapeutic Singing®.     If you are interested in taking the training, please click the link below, which will take you to the Academy website.  In 2023, training institutes will be offered in Canada, the United States, the Netherlands, Germany, and France.  

"I took the NMT Training back in February.  All the information that you shared has made a significant difference in my practice."

"Thank you so much for your eye-opening presentation at the NMT training on the weekend. I was inspired and want to learn more about the science behind singing exercises."

"Dr. Charlene organized every lecture with very informative content. Students really learned a lot from her class. Her lecture helped the students understand the basic concepts of vocal anatomy, the pathology of voice disorders, and much more. These course materials are not easy for students that are not voice majors, but Dr. Charlene was able to deliver the lecture using lots of case examples or her personal experiences to make the content more relatable therefore and easier to understand."

​"The course's content was very thorough, detailed, and applicable... it made me want to study vocal pedagogy in further depth - not just because of the content, but also because of the professor who brought a wealth of knowledge and experience."
