Students in vocal master class learn from Dr. Paul Smith


Dr. Paul SmithDr. Paul Smith from Friends University was on Cowley College’s main campus in Arkansas City on Tuesday to work with students in the vocal master class.

Dr. Smith worked with each student individually. The soloists were, Hunter DeWald, Abby Killman, Sarah Scruggs, and Kandice Wright.


Lindsay Allen, Cowley College lead applied voice instructor, first met Dr. Smith when she was in graduate school working on her Master’s in Music Ed with an emphasis in voice.


“He is a wonderful teacher that is well-versed in vocal pedagogy,” Allen said. “His knowledge of not only the voice, but how the whole body affects the sound is astounding! Having him here at Cowley this year and last was such a valuable experience for Kandice, Hunter, Sarah, and Abby. I hope we have opportunities to work together in the future and I hope the students learned as much as we did by observing.”
