Dr. Wilkinson holds the Doctor of Musical Arts in Voice and the Certificate in Singing Health from The Ohio State University, a collaboration between the departments of music, speech and hearing science, and otolaryngology. At once a singing teacher, voice and speech coach, and voice scientist, he is one of Canada’s leading voice pedagogues with a singular ability to habilitate and rehabilitate both professional and aspiring professional voice users. In addition to his rare background in clinical voice therapy and laryngology, he is known as an expert in educational psychology, curriculum design, and the neuroscience of learning. He enjoys paying what he’s learned forward to individuals and groups from all walks of life, no matter the reason and no matter their level of experience.
“Everybody should have access to understanding how the voice works, what it is, and how to take care of it.” – Dr. Mark Wilkinson
On March 5, the 2022 NYCC singers met virtually with Dr. Wilkinson. The premise of his workshop was to debunk the most common myths about the voice and the breath, all while giving the choristers the opportunity to learn the basics of how the voice truly works. We were delighted to share in this experience, and to learn from such a humble and inspiring teacher. We look forward to seeing Dr. Wilkinson again (in person) in Ottawa in May!
