The Voice Department offers a full range of courses, designed to serve singers from amateur to the most advanced levels. Our courses cover a full range of styles and genres from contemporary musical theater to lieder and opera and beyond, and offer focused training in diction and performance skills crucial to the artistic growth and development of every singer and singing actor. Taken together, they are designed to constitute a comprehensive curriculum for study in the vocal arts.
Fundamentals of Singing is appropriate for beginning singers with or without prior musical or vocal training, and is open to singers without an audition. Voice Classes/Solid Singing for Every Performer loosely grouped by experience and training, stress the development of a free, healthy vocal production and confident performance skills that are applicable to ALL styles and eras of music. Singing with Clarity: Diction for Effective Communication in Song develops the ability to express and communicate effectively in the four basic singing languages (English, Italian, French and German) and gives students a working knowledge of phonetic symbols that they can apply to even more languages that they might wish to sing. The Vocal Performance Seminar is geared to singers who already have a substantial repertoire of classical pieces, and focuses on program-building and communication in both art song and opera.
