I am a part of an inter-disciplinary team of researchers examining the nature of interpersonal relationships within the context of in-person private studio voice lessons.
I would appreciate anyone who has had private singing voice lessons and would like to share their experiences to complete the survey. Please consider sharing this link with students and/or colleagues. We are hoping for as many respondents as possible, and all data is completely anonymized.
THE USE OF TECHNOLOGY AND INSTRUMENTATION BY SINGING TEACHERS, SPOKEN VOICE TEACHERS AND SPEECH AND LANGUAGE THERAPISTS IN THEIR PRACTICE.

I am working on the second edition of my book Voice Work: Art and Science in Changing Voices (2009) - this time with American co-author, Rockford Sansom.
Since the first edition there have been a number of new developments in terms of apps and software possibly relevant to voice practitioners, and of course this continues. We will not be able to supply an up-to-date comprehensive list of recommendations, but would like to describe what our colleagues are using in their voice work. Rockford is going to make a similar enquiry via social media in the US.
We are very interested in finding out what (if any) technology and/or instrumentation different voice practitioners are using in their voice work with clients - in SLT voice work, and also in singing teaching and the variety of spoken voice training.
I would be hugely grateful if you could spare a few minutes to send me even the briefest e-mail in note form, describing what technology – and how - you might be using in your own work, whether this is an app, computer software or a large piece of hardware.

The Approaches of Singing Teachers to New and Unfamiliar Repertoire.
Contact Email: Deborah Grace
Contact Phone: +61 413 803040
Singing teachers – you may find this survey interesting to complete, as it relates to singing teachers and their approach to Western vocal repertoire selection. You are invited to take part in a research project about how singing teachers approach new and unfamiliar repertoire. The study is designed to discover how singing teachers approach their selection of repertoire for their students and in particular, how and if they teach repertoire which they have not seen or performed before. The study is being conducted by Deborah Grace (Master of Research Candidate, Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia).
The survey is online and is to be completed anonymously. This research project has received ethics clearance from the Macquarie University Human Research Ethics Committee.
