Rebecca Moseley-Morgan is a former opera singer turned voice science researcher, musicologist and voice teacher. She is currently researching the longevity of the mature female a voice at University College London. This research has spanned eight years now and findings from this study are statistically significant and support the hypotheses that the vocal competency of the mature female singer can be sustained through effective pedagogy
Originally RCM-trained, Vetta came to Suffolk in 2002 after careers as a soloist and University lecturer in Opera and Musical Theatre singing and Choral Training at the University of Cape Town; she was also Chorus Master of Cape Town opera and Director of the Philharmonia Choir. She established an opera training programme for previously- disadvantaged young singers from the townships, which has served as a springboard for several currently successful solo singers internationally. Her extensive work with choirs in South Africa allowed her the opportunity to work with, inter alia, Menuhin, Osawa, Pavarotti; the LPO and Birmingham Royal Ballet,Rutter andWillcocks. She now teaches privately, conducts several choirs and ensembles both in the UK and overseas, runs popular vocal workshops and master classes, and is currently collaborating to develop a synthesis of past and current effective breathingtechniques for singers.
