At STEMMEDOKTOR, we are highly skilled and at the same time able to use our own voice at a high level, and because we have been very critical regarding the learning process, we have sorted out all irrelevant content and made the relevant and interesting content much more pedagogic. We have researched and developed a unique knowledge and a unique teaching material.
It is singing and speech therapist Hans Toft-Olsen who has developed STEMMEDOKTOR’s educational methodology. He is also the author of the book “Styr på stemmen” (Control your voice) that is based on the same philosophy. One reviewer wrote:
“This book is a magnificent specimen of pedagogical mediation. No more, no less. If you have read many books about the voice and the vocal function and abdominal support and posture – and indeed I have – you can safely take a garbage bag and throw the whole lot out and let this little nifty case written by singing teacher and speech therapist Hans Toft-Olsen, stand back as a unique and functional evidence that it is actually possible to say much in few words and that it is not always necessary to render things more complicated than they actually are.”
