Vocal Health Workshop – Sing Ireland @ Cork International Choral Festival 2021
Eimear McCarthy Luddy is a singing teacher with a keen interest in vocal health and singing voice rehabilitation. She was the first Irish person to complete advanced training in voice science (also called vocology) at the National Centre for Voice and Speech in Salt Lake City and remains committed to expanding her training by completing regular CPD courses. She qualified from the Royal Irish Academy of Music with a Masters in Music Performance where she also conducted research investigating attitudes and practices toward vocal health in Ireland. As a singing teacher she maintains a busy practice from young students to professional singers. Eimear founded Vocology Ireland in 2020 with the goal of bringing an approachable voice science and vocal health resource to Irish shores. As part of this goal she presents voice science and vocal health education workshops for singers and singing teachers. She is also currently the Course Leader for Vocal Health First Aid as part of the not-for-profit organisation Vocal Health Education, and a vocal health trainer with the British Association for Performing Arts Medicine.
