Anne Peckham

"I teach vocal technique to singers who are interested in all styles of music. The people who come to me usually have a well-established personal sound, and my job is to help them fine-tune the craft of singing. I think it's hard for students to find somebody who teaches technique and who's open to teaching students who aren't interested in classical music. That's where I fit into the voice pedagogy puzzle. I'm very interested in all kinds of contemporary, commercial music, and so that's what I do. I help pop singers, rock singers, jazz singers, r&b singers, gospel singers, anybody who is interested in improving their voice or aspects of their vocal technique.

"I want students to know that they can sing in a healthy manner in the style of music that they love. It's not like making cookie-cutter singers where everybody has a certain quality of tone or a certain sound to their voice; you can sound like yourself and still use vocal technique. Technique really has to be habituated so that it's almost invisible to the naked eye. That way, you're watching the singer perform, be expressive, and be him- or herself, while technique is the underpinning that's allowing the singer to sing freely, but with good stamina and good intonation.

"There is more of a hearty and wholesale acceptance of the individual and the individual's interest in music at Berklee than almost anywhere else. Berklee is a place where students can come and sing the music that they love. Teachers in the Voice Department are really open to working with students who want to sing the types of music that wouldn't be accepted elsewhere. Whether it's music they have written or pop and r&b music, students will find a home in Berklee's Voice Department in a way that they wouldn't find it at any other college of music."
