Rebecca Moseley-Morgan – Vocal 2020
Rebecca is currently chair of Education for the British Voice Association, an associate lecturer in voice at Bath Spa University and has a busy voice studio in Oxford. She gives workshops throughout the UK on the functionality of the voice, accent breathing and vocal care and maintenance. Last year she wrote a module entitled ‘an introduction to voice science’ for Bath spa University. She is also an adjudicator for the International and British Federation of Music Festivals.
In her early career, Rebecca won scholarships to the Royal College of Music and Opera School and sung professionally at Glyndebourne, WNO and Opera 80, amongst others. As a soloist, she has performed throughout the UK and Europe.
Rebecca has an MA in musicology and is currently nearing the end of her PhD research at UCL. Her research investigates what interventions can maintain the functionality of the mature female voice. Findings from this study are statistically significant and support the hypotheses that the vocal competency of the mature female singer can be sustained through effective pedagogy. This is leading to her current work on devising a new pedagogy specifically for the mature voice. The first presentation of this work was at the Pan European Voice Conference, (PEVOC) in Copenhagen August 2019.
