Abstract

What a wonderful world: international teaching-learning experiences in singing. This paper reports the findings of qualitative research that relied on the collaboration of three voice pedagogues and a number of senior voice students from Sweden, The Netherlands and South Africa. The involvement of synchronous and asynchronous teaching-learning opportunities, as well as a convergence of face-to-face and distance learning, resulted in adopting blended learning as the teaching-and learning approach. The multicultural social contexts across the world requires processes of multicultural education to be considered when preparing voice students for performances, competitions and careers. Therefore, the purpose of this research was to understand how the collaboration between voice pedagogues and students from three different countries can enhance the music education of singers who come from diverse cultural contexts. This research is significant because it offers suggestions on methods and processes that might be used to achieve international collaboration in preparing voice students in the above-mentioned fields. Technologies used to create, design and facilitate teaching-learning material and experiences included hypermedia, social messaging applications and voice over protocol, as well as computer software. Data were collected throughout the research process by conducting semi-structured interviews and observing the participants’ experiences. We anticipate that the results will show that such international collaboration is possible
