What happens when you've been studying for years and it seems as though your newly acquired education is contradicting or not in sync with what you've learned (and paid good money for) in the past?
A conversation sparked in the Working Voice Actors Group on LinkedIn has inspired this post.
What do you think?
A Difference of Opinion
Conflict is never a pretty thing.
Inevitably, we all encounter conflict, and while not always a physical thing, conflict can be a matter of contrasting ideas, techniques or philosophies.
Even if you are studying with some of the best in the business, should you study with more than one of those people, you're likely to encounter a butting of heads or difference of opinion as each of those teachers has their own perspective, experiences and methods.
When you are paying for lessons, seminars or workshops, you might find that you are being taught a number of things, wonderful things, but all the same, potentially conflicting information.
What do you do in such an instance? Do you take only what you want from certain instruction? Have you stopped studying with other teachers altogether to avoid this?
Looking forward to hearing from you,
