The training of performance singing In a multilingual, multicultural educational context presents unique problems and requires inventive teaching strategies. Computer-aided training offers objective visual feedback of the voice production that can be implemented as a teaching aid in higher education. This article reports on the subjective programme evaluation by a teacher and learners who participated in a dual phase computer-aided training programme. Parallel questionnaires were used to evaluate specific aspects of the programme that included pre-training and singing training with and without computer aid. All the participants were positive about the computer-aided training confirming the feasibility of the approach. A comparison of the evaluations of the participants in the two training phases accentuates the importance of extensive pre-training for teachers, teaching assistants and learners.
