Dr. Kathy Price leads a seminar that explores how perimenopause, menopause and post-menopause may affect the voice.
In this edition of the virtual series, Westminster Wednesdays, Westminster College of the Arts faculty Jay Carter is joined by Kathy Price, Ph.D., professor of voice and director of Westminster's Presser Voice Laboratory, for “Singing Through Menopause” which explores the complexities faced by female singers during the stages of menopause.
Women in particular face hormone loss during mid-life that can affect their voices in challenging ways. In the video, Price explores menopausal changes, what’s involved in each stage and explains how to work through the challenges and continue singing throughout the lifespan. She also addresses questions with suggestions for practice sessions, vocalises and lifestyle tips.
Westminster Wednesdays is an interactive, monthly virtual workshop hosted by Rider University’s renowned Westminster Choir College. The series is designed to help musicians explore sound, collaborate, practice and learn new techniques.
