​  Panel: Videos on videos: Teaching Voice in the TikTok Era

  Many voice teachers of the 21st century have undoubtedly had students come into lessons referencing or asking questions about voice   lesson/technique videos they have seen on TikTok or Instagram. It is the job of the voice teacher to decipher the information being shared,   separating useful information from information that may be less useful, and then being able to guide the student to achieve the desired result   in a way that is rooted in Evidence-Based Voice Pedagogy (EBVP) and Practice. This panel will look at several videos that have been found on   TikTok or Instagram to decipher and discuss what information is useful, and also to brainstorm ways to achieve the desired results through   their experience and expertise, a pillar of Evidence-Based Voice Pedagogy (EBVP).
