“Owning our Voices: Vocal Discovery in the Wolfsohn-Hart Tradition” by Margaret Pikes and Patrick Campbell.
Published in January 2021 by Routledge in their Voice Studies Series.
“Owning our Voices” fuses Margaret’s personal account of her own vocal journey as a woman within this, at times, male-dominated tradition, alongside an overview of her particular pedagogical approach to voice work.
It is accompanied by digital footage of Margaret at work in the studio with artist-collaborators and written descriptions of scenarios for teaching and thus offers readers an introduction to both the philosophy and the practice of Wolfsohn-Hart voice work.
Margaret Pikes is a founding member of Roy Hart Theatre. She has been teaching voice internationally for over 50 years. After participating in the first shows of the Roy Hart Theater, she developed a career as a singer in different styles, from jazz to French song.
