(p.161) Chapter 6 Emerging Considerations
Thinking Outside the Voice Box

Bridget Sweet

Oxford University Press

The chapter discusses emerging considerations of adolescent voice change beyond classification systems and provides new food for thought about working with the adolescent changing voice. A section of the chapter specifically addresses female singers, for while it is common to have more females than males in choral programs, enrollment numbers do not ensure that choral programs are meeting females’ musical, developmental, and personal needs. In addition, discussion of the documentary Riot Acts provides insight into voice change from the perspective of professional musicians who identify as transgender. The chapter ends with ideas for working with changing voices, especially with regard to approaching choral repertoire.

Keywords:   female voice change, male voice change, adult singers, adolescent alto, qualitative research, identity, Riot Acts, transgender voice change, choral repertoire, reimagining choral music
