Pop: the substance behind the style
A practical day exploring teaching pop singing at a grassroots level
with Jono McNeil
About the day
Singing teachers are increasingly being required to teach across the full spectrum of genres. This professional development day is designed for teachers looking to further their knowledge of pop singing and provide some of the substance behind the style. During the day, Jono will work with a range of students of different ages and levels of experience to help you build a tool kit for use in your own teaching practice.
Jono McNeil is a senior vocal lecturer at the Academy of Contemporary Music and also works as a vocal coach for The Voice Kids, The Voice, Wedding Day Winners and Change Your Tune, airing on BBC1 and ITV.
He is an artist and singer in his own right as well as providing vocal coaching for professional singers, contemporary artists and musical theatre performers, combining a unique complement of skills to provide a well-blended approach to maximise the possibilities of the voice. He adopts a holistic approach, with a deep focus on sustainable vocal technique, contemporary vocal styling and dynamic performance skills.
