WAM’s teaming up with APRA AMCOS to bring you another Music Industry Sundowner Session, this time talking all things vocal health with WA’s very own vocal health specialist and voice coach, Edwina “Edde” Masson. All local singers are encouraged to join us 6-8pm on Monday April 29th at Cleaver Street & Co.
Meet your speaker – Edde Masson:
Edwina “Edde” Masson is a singer, songwriter, teacher, author, vocal health specialist, voice coach, and the current Head Lecturer of the Vocal Program in the Music Artist Contemporary Course at the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA).
Edde graduated from WAAPA in 2015 with a Bachelors Degree in Music and has since become the youngest ever lecturer employed by the Academy. Whilst pursuing a successful career in the Music Industry, which saw her perform in New York, Melbourne, Perth, and at the iconic Basement in Sydney, Edde became acutely aware of the effect physical health has on vocal performance.
Managing her own chronic autoimmune condition, Edde has spent innumerable hours caring for her constantly fatigued vocal cords. Because of this, she has amassed a personal wealth of vocal health knowledge. From anatomical to physiological to psychological to emotional to spiritual, Edde has dedicated her life to researching the nature of the Human voice.
As a lecturer and voice coach, Edde has become aware that many singing teachers and students have little knowledge about how their voices work. This has inspired her to teach workshops and courses, guest speak at music conferences and mental health seminars, and also offer private coaching, focussing specifically on a truly holistic approach to singing.
Edde has collaborated with speech pathologists, public speakers, Yoga instructors, school teachers, lawyers, mental health professionals, allied health practitioners, and an array of respected musicians, including Deni Hines, Drapht, Coin Banks, and Flowidus. She has also coached some successful local artists, including Grace Armstrong, Bella Nicholls (Demon Days), and John Stapleton (Wooly Mammoth), as well as Ashleigh Carr-White and Saskia Brittain (Dulcie).
As a member of the band Lofty Heights, Edde was awarded the first runner-up position of the international John Lennon Songwriting Contest. She has also participated in Desert Feet Tour music projects in remote Indigenous communities throughout Western Australia. Edde is a pioneer of holistic vocal health and continues to be a highly sought after speaker and teacher.
