MUSICAL THEATER IN THE CLASSICAL VOICE STUDIO: a Unified Pedagogical Approach through a discussion of the Research on and Misconceptions of Belting

by Jeb Mueller, Jeffrey Stern
posted 3 years ago
A well organized, overview of Belting. It begins with a review of the physiology of the voice, then moves into historical context, definitions and their discrepancies, and a discussion of what is actually occuring during belt singing. This presentation is filled with excellent citations and presents the controversies in a well thought out manner. It also discusses whether or not belting is healthy and then strategies for maintaining vocal health for those who teach and perform in this style. As a final thought they quote Barbara Doscher when she states that "our profession has a responsibility to all singers, not just to those whose aesthetic preference we agree with." A starting place for the teacher who is grappling with how to and whether or not to teach those who wish to belt.

    Editor's Review
    The author indicates that TA and CT muscles are separate from the intrinsic laryngeal muscles. This is inaccurate, as CT and TA are intrinsic laryngeal muscles. The outline does not go into great depth but is a great starting place for further education.
