As a researcher, Jared is interested in investigating the ways elite professional singers use and maintain their voices. His intent is to distill acoustics, physiology, neuroscience, and aspects of voice & speech and acting training into practical tools for use in the vocal studio. He has presented at various conferences around the country including Fall Voice, Pan-American Vocology Association (PAVA), Musical Theatre Educators' Alliance (MTEA) and National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS). He has also been a part of Mary Saunders-Barton’s presentations at the MTEA Conference. Additionally, Jared is on the faculty for the Penn State Musical Theatre Voice Pedagogy: Bel Canto/Can Belto workshop and the Boston Conservatory Vocal Pedagogy Professional Workshop.
His honors thesis from Tufts University is titled Belting Beauties and Soaring Sopranos: Voice Pedagogy to Address the Wide-Ranging Needs of Women in Musical Theatre. His and Michael Hanley’s presentation Bridging the Gap Between Theatre Voice Training and the Male Singing Voice explores how spoken voice training and singing technique intersect and help one another. Jared and Amanda Flynn’s research Perception vs. Reality: Investigating the Female Belt in Broadway’s Leading Actresses examines the techniques used by women on Broadway in both high belt and traditional belt roles.
Jared is available as a guest clinician for both lectures and masterclasses. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a workshop.
