Soul Ingredients® with Dr. Trineice Robinson-Martin
Hosted with the 2023 Online LoVetri Institute for Somatic Voicework™
The original CCM Vocal Pedagogy course offered in partnership with Baldwin Wallace University.
What is Soul Ingredients® Methodology?
Soul Ingredients® is a voice teaching method created by Dr. Trineice Robinson-Martin for developing the voice while fostering personal style and soul expression. This methodology uses a strategic combination of science-based voice pedagogy and standard pedagogic concepts found within the oral teaching tradition of African American folk-based music styles (gospel, jazz, soul, hip-hop) to develop unique artists and musical storytellers regardless of musical genre. Through this uniquely designed methodology, the historical, artistic and improvisational techniques of African American music merge with science based vocal technique in an exploration of how each individual performer's physical, emotional and cultural perceptions can expand their artistry.
Soul Ingredients® is voice pedagogy according to science; voice training according to style; and artist development rooted in personal soul expression.
