- "Students of voice are trained in complex processes of coordinated movements, many of which occur internally. Somatic education techniques may promote complementary skills, such as the ability to integrate the mind and body, to move with ease and efficiency, and to intervene with awareness and volition against interfering habits. After examining three related approaches to somatic education, a multiple case study was conducted on three professional voice teachers, each of whom is also certified in the somatic education disciplines of the Alexander Technique, the Feldenkrais Method, or Hanna Somatic Education. Each teacher was interviewed three times, and observed teaching four voice lessons. One voice student at each site was interviewed as well. A comparison and analysis of interview and observation data from these contexts may illuminate the ways in which somatic education principles can be applied to the teaching of voice."
