The establishment of solid, safe vocal technique during the teenage years is essential to a singer’s growth and success as an adult; the purpose of this paper is to investigate vocal pedagogical technique for female singers in their adolescence. Through an exploration of adolescent vocal development, a survey of the bel canto singing tradition, and interviews with voice teachers, this project will discuss a teaching method that values vocal health, development, and longevity in young singers. The final objective will be to better understand and identify the developments and challenges encountered by female adolescents in and around puberty, and to suggest pedagogical vocal techniques for current and future singers and teachers.
