AOTOS Zoom Event: The Vocal Athlete – Why Knowing Physiology Matters
Live presentation with David McCabe
AOTOS members only
The Vocal Athlete – Why Knowing Physiology Matters
To reach higher levels of performance, the vocal athlete has to embrace the synthesis between the physical body and neuroscience. Many voice systems will focus on the physical elements of voice production – the anatomy of the voice. David’s presentation will help teachers understand what they are trying to accomplish with various exercises, allowing them to concentrate more effectively on each student’s progress, rather than just completing an exercise task.

David is the CEO and Principal osteopath at Back2Life Clinics and a freelance anatomy lecturer in Scotland. Since starting his osteopathic training in 2000, he has been fascinated with human anatomy. For osteopaths, it is the subject they pride themselves on – their ‘Mastermind’ specialist subject you could say! David decided to take his passion further with an MSc in Human Anatomy with teaching at Edinburgh University. He has since taught anatomy at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. David is a founding member of OPACA, the Osteopathic Performing Arts Care Association.
