Talking Technique with Joan Melton

Posted Thursday, December 2nd 2021 by Greg Kefalas
"What I love most as a teacher is helping others to realize their potential and manifest their dreams." Vocal Pedagogy interviews Joan Melton, PhD, ADVS.

Having studied and performed all her life, Joan Melton soon went on to teach at “leading centers of drama and music” around the world including “the US, UK, Norway, Sweden, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand.”

Over the years, Joan has collected a vast knowledge of the different vocal techniques used in every part of the world. What makes one form more effective over another and how it is communicated here, there and every where.

Joan is the author of Singing in Musical Theatre: The Training of Singers and Actors (2007), Dancing with Voice: A Collaborative Journey across Disciplines (2015), and One Voice: Integrating Techniques across Performance Disciplines (3rd edition available in 2022).
