What a busy week it has been!
I kicked it off in good form visiting Deakin university to deliver our Voice Maintenance PD to the education students.
The Deakin PD week is a fantastic initiative run by the students, gathering the best education PD’s from around Victoria and putting them in one place.
Anything from integrating i pads into classroom learning, to using drama and performance as a basis for teaching practice (I was upset to miss that one).
For me it was four hours of intensive vocal vibrations, anatomy analogies and new thoughts of practical pedagogies.
So, thank you Deakin and good luck to all the student teachers who attended during your next set of rounds!
Don’t forget, a five-minute vocal warm up every day will strengthen and maintain your voice for your whole career and, as a bonus, tone your abs.
