The National Association of Teachers of Singing’s May/June issue of the Journal of Singing has come out. My article,”Live vs. Autotune–Comparing Apples to Oranges to Get Fruit Salad,” is published in The Journal’s regular column, The Independent Teacher.
The article is an exploration into how advances in the recording industry over the past 20 years have shaped my work as a teacher of singing of both classical and popular music of over 30 years. If you would like a copy of this article, forward your email and I will send your a pdf file.

The Journal of Singing is a compilation of scholarly, academic and scientific articles on the act and art of singing, mostly from a classical point of view, but the musical theater and pop sectors have begun to infiltrate in the past 15 years.
Unfortunately, there is a ridiculous amount of brouhaha among teachers of different musical styles, in spite of the advances of the teaching community over the years.
It would be really awesome if this article contributes, in some small way, to building more bridges among teachers and singers, performers and scholars.
