Advanced Vocal Pedagogy: Teaching Singing


Building upon the knowledge gained in Introduction to Vocal Pedagogy, Advanced Vocal Pedagogy is geared toward students specifically interested in learning how to teach voice. This course offers a practical approach to evaluating voices, diagnosing technical flaws, and offering targeted solutions. Also covered are studio ethics, repertory selection, historical pedagogy, and suggestions for building and maintaining a studio. Heavily practicums based, students will teach several voice lessons to non-majors, observe NEC faculty members teach, and work with computer based voice analysis software. Students will read several peer-reviewed articles from voice science and voice pedagogy journals, give a presentation demonstrating original thought in the field of vocal pedagogy, and write a final essay exploring their philosophical and practical approaches to teaching voice.
