P15-1 Development and Evaluation of an Audio Signal Processing Educational Tool to Support Somatosensory Singing Control—Evangelos Angelakis, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens - Athens, Greece; George Kosteletos, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens - Athens, Greece; Areti Andreopoulou, Laboratory of Music Acoustics and Technology (LabMAT) National and Kapodistrian University of Athens - Athens, Greece; Anastasia Georgaki, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens - Athens, Greece
This paper discusses a newly designed educational tool called “Match Your Own Voice!,” which aims at complementing modern vocal pedagogy. The software addresses the perceptual challenges faced by aspiring singers and the need for more objective unsupervised practice methods and quantified reference points to guide students through their training course. The tool is a real-time visual feedback application that uses lessons with a professional vocal coach as a reference for the students’ unassisted practice guidance. It is designed for use on portable computers. The conducted longitudinal study evaluating the tool’s effect on the students’ practice accuracy showed promising results.

P15-2 Future Educational Goals for Audio Recording and Production (ARP) Programs: A Decade of Supporting Research—Doug Bielmeier, Northeastern University - Boston, MA, USA
This paper presentation reviews research collected over the last decade to forecast best practices and goals for future educators and students. A collective mandate of Audio Recording and Production (ARP) educational programs is to provide students with foundational skills/theory to begin a career in the recording and entertainment industry. This paper draws connections between a series of surveys designed to elicit many perspectives of people involved in the education and application of ARP programs, educators in ARP programs, and students enrolled in ARP programs. The review will provide insight and actionable items for continued innovations in ARP educational institutions and the maintenance of a healthy relationship between Industry and ARP programs for employees, employers, educators, and students.
