Unit 1: Module 2
An Inside Job:
Before we meet:
Where we'll meet:
This week we’re going to talk about interoception: what it is, why it matters to singers, and how to use it.
Class Time...meet me in my Zoom Room
Our meeting time is listed by time zone in the email you got with the deets for this week.
After we meet:
Step Zero: Before the Hunn
Walk through the process of redirecting the singer's attention when phonating
Principle 1: Find the Hunn
Try the exercise we worked on - Before the Hunn and Find the Hunn - with yourself and with 2 (or more) clients
Try this with 1-3 students (which students do you have in mind?)
The Science of Hearing
The ear's task is to convert sound energy into neural signals; the brain's is to receive and process the information those signals contain. To understand how that works, Douglas L. Oliver follows a sound on its journey into the ear.
In this talk, Dr. Nina Kraus makes clear “sound ingredients: pitch, timing, timbre, sound processing". She demonstrates sound recordings from brains. This demonstrates the way healthy brains process sound in a very analogous way.
Kraus explores the cognitive and biological benefits of music training.
This is TOTALLY optional for people who like reading research papers (this is particularly well-written for a research paper)!
