    007 - Kenneth Bozeman - Author and Professor, generously shares with us through the lense of his work with vocal acoustics, a personal insight into an extraordinary journey with his own voice.

    An authority on vocal acoustics, this is a glimpse of a very special human in conversation. Humble, open, wise. 

     ‘Voice is a kind of sound characteristic of what has soul in it; nothing that is without soul utters voice… Voice then is the impact of the inbreathed air against the ‘windpipe’, and the agent that produces the impact is the soul resident in these parts of the body’. Aristotle.

    Kenneth Bozeman, Professor of Music, tenor, holds performance degrees from Baylor University and the University of Arizona, and subsequently studied at the State Conservatory of Music in Munich on a Rotary fellowship.  He is chair of the voice department at Lawrence University, where he has received two awards for excellence in teaching. He was awarded the Van Lawrence Fellowship by the Voice Foundation in 1994 for his interest in voice science and pedagogy and is the chair of the editorial board of the NATS Journal of Singing. His former students have sung with Houston Grand, Boston Lyric, Opera Colorado, Washington, Wolf Trap, Seattle, Deutsche Oper Berlin, San Francisco, New York City Opera, the Metropolitan, and Santa Fe Opera.

Njsuk ,

Great new podcast.

I’m not a voice practitioner. I’m a director and writer, but voice fascinates me and this podcast is really well done. It is accessible and really informative. Highly recommended for anyone who works in musical theatre, voice coaching or as a performer.
