Level III certification in the Somatic Voicework™ The LoVetri Method
Aug 2011
Shenandoah University
Somatic Voicework™ is based voice upon research done on Jeanie LoVetri in 1988 in Stockholm, Sweden, by Dr. Johan Sundberg and the late Dr. Patricia Gramming of the Royal Swedish Institute’s Music Acoustics Lab. In this research, Ms. LoVetri was confirmed to be singing in three distinct, separate vocal productions on purpose. She was already an experienced singer and singing teacher, working with her voice all day long, and had no vocal health issues. Somatic Voicework™, Ms. LoVetri’s method, is clear, easily understood and incorporates grounding in vocal anatomy and physiology, vocal acoustics and voice medicine, assuring that it presents information that makes sense, is accurate, and is replicable by others, no matter what their background.
