Inclusive Approaches to Understanding Voice Change in Young Singers

  • 4th March 2022
  • 09:30 - 12:30
  • Sage Gateshead (Northern Rock Foundation Hall) and Online

Sage Gateshead is delighted to present MC2, the sixth in our series of mini conferences for music leaders, music teachers, and other professionals working with children and young people who are experiencing challenging circumstances. Following the success of our November 2021 hybrid MC2 event, this is our second hybrid mini conference and we are thrilled to make more places available by hosting the event in person at Sage Gateshead and online simultaneously. This event is made possible by Youth Music funding. 

Delegates will develop awareness and understanding of inclusive practice when working with young people’s changing voices. MC² will include presentations, workshops and a panel discussion. Delegates will come away with new knowledge, insight, skills and contacts. 

Suzanne Chadwick will explore the practical challenges of working with young singers assigned male at birth in group contexts, developing delegates’ understanding of the physicality of voice change and exploring strategies to support young singers. Mike Woodhams will explore working with trans, non-binary and gender nonconforming singers, discussing empathetic approaches to language and musical content to support delegates’ understanding of how to meet the needs of young people they work with. Sunderland Youth Choir will lead a workshop in which Young Vocal Leaders will share their experience of creating an inclusive space for young people. With young people at the heart of the activity, delegates will develop an understanding of how youth voice can be at the core of inclusive practice when working with young singers.
