Low-Latency Solutions for Singers, Voice Teachers, and Choral Directors

Join the UW-Whitewater Voice Faculty for an exciting day of safe, low-latency music-making! The UW-Whitewater Voice Technology Open House is an opportunity for high school-age singers to work one-on-one with college voice faculty, meet college voice majors, and participate in master classes and small group sessions--all while safely distanced using remote instruction.

Participants will have the opportunity to learn about and experience the technologies that UW-Whitewater voice faculty currently use to safely teach applied lessons, run rehearsals, record, and perform. These include SoundJack--a low-latency audio platform that allows musicians to collaborate in real-time over the internet, and the “Parking Lot Choir,” which enables choir members to rehearse in real time while singing separately in their own cars.

All individual lessons will be held with both parties in separate rooms linked by low-latency platforms, masterclasses will be run over SoundJack and Zoom, and group sessions will be held in our large spaces or outdoors (weather permitting).

Each participant will receive an individual lesson with a UW-Whitewater Voice Area faculty member. Post-secondary-age singers, choir directors, and voice teachers are invited to attend workshops for music teachers run by UW-Whitewater voice and choral education faculty. This clinic is available to high-school-age singers, voice teachers, and choir directors.

Limited to the first 15 registrants.
