Introduction to Vocal Pedagogy

An introduction to vocal pedagogy, this course explores optimal singing technique in the context of a singer’s organizing principle, the series of clear thoughts that gives rise to a coordinated singing body. Practical anatomy and acoustics, historical treatises, and the paradoxes that inform technical choices in classical and musical theater styles are also covered. Regular listening exercises, readings, in-class demonstrations and presentations, and discussions are supplemented by exposure to computer based singing analysis and synthesis systems.
