Faculty member Lynn Helding inaugurates vocal science association

Lynn Helding, a faculty member of the USC Thornton Vocal Arts and Opera program who specializes in vocal pedagogy, delivered the keynote address at the inaugural symposium of PAVA, the Pan-American Vocology Association, in October at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.

PAVA stems from the relatively new field of voice science — also known more broadly as vocology — and is dedicated to advancing the scientific study of the voice through research, dissemination of knowledge, training, and the creation of professional standards and credentials in voice habilitation and rehabilitation.
