Abstract

The article discusses the role that attention, memory and learning play in the study of voice and discusses the impact that ambient noise levels in the environment, the constant availability of news and digital technology have had on the attention span of human beings. A discussion of the differences between short-term memory, working memory, declarative memory and procedural memory is presented. Research which has investigated memory in humans is discussed. The role that voice teachers can play in improving the memory skills of voice students is examined.
