Abstract: The voice only ‘becomes itself’ when it leaves the body, but it is also of the body, tied to our individual physiologies and lived experiences. Teaching voice in the context of a ‘mixed’ higher education environment, characterised by diverse levels of experience, cultural and ethnic backgrounds, therefore raises a number of issues. Focusing on the benefits of self-reflective pedagogies, Broderick Chow and Grant Peterson, both Lecturers at Brunel University London, outline some of the challenges and possibilities of teaching musical theatre in a broad-based BA Theatre programme.
