Kenneth Bozeman, Frank C. Shattuck Professor of Music, is the ninth recipient of Lawrence’s Faculty Convocation Award, which represents the judgment of faculty peers that the person’s professional work is of high quality and deserves the honor of selection.
A tenor, Bozeman has taught in the conservatory’s voice department since 1977. He is one of only 11 faculty members in the history of the university to be recognized with Lawrence’s Young Teacher Award (1980) and Excellence in Teaching Award (1996). He also was honored by the Voice Foundation with its Van Lawrence Fellowship in 1994 for his interest in voice science and pedagogy.
In 2017, his book on acoustic pedagogy, “Practical Vocal Acoustics: Pedagogic Applications for Teachers and Singers” was published. He is frequently invited to speak at seminars and master classes on acoustic pedagogy at universities and interdisciplinary conferences.
His appearance is supported by the Marguerite Schumann Memorial Lectureship.
