Hearing loss is an all-too common, rarely addressed problem amongst musicians that can mean the end of a performing/teaching career. Dr. Christine Isley-Farmer shares how she utilized daily Alexander Technique to recover her own hearing after a diagnosis of Sudden Sensorineural Hearing Loss threatened her career as a teacher and singer. She will identify the anatomy of hearing, the different types of hearing loss, prevention, and treatment options and present coping strategies to be used in work and performance environments.

Dr. Christine Isley-Farmer is Coordinator and Professor of Voice at Middle Tennessee State University. Her performing credits include professional singing in both the US and Europe and she has been a teaching member of Alexander Technique International since 1997. Christine has been a featured presenter for regional and state meetings of the National Association of Teachers of Singing and National Opera Association. Her article on Alexander Technique and singing was published in the Journal of Singing. She will present her research on Sudden Sensorineural Hearing Loss and singing in October at the Seventh International Health, Wellness, and Society Conference in Denver, Colorado.

Our expanded conference includes 15 workshops with 16 presenters from around the country and the globe.
