During this time, he learned how to perform and use his voice in a complimentary manner with body/movement. His graduate training at the University of Iowa was in speech pathology and vocology (voice rehabilitation) where he learned to keep the vocal instrument healthy as well as how to rehabilitate the voice when injured. He stayed at the U of Iowa where he earned his Ph. D. in speech and hearing sciences to continue research on vocal extremes (screaming, shouting, etc) and develop a further understanding of the bio-mechanical and neurological principles involved with voice.
