MUS-3060 Vocal Pedagogy

2 credits
Students in the course will receive grounding in the structure and function of the vocal mechanism, combined with a survey of basic pedagogical approaches to healthy vocal production and singing technique.  Students will have introductory experiences in teaching basic constructs for both group and individual contexts.  Students will be introduced to the International Phonetic Alphabet as a tool for teaching diction in both the choral and solo arenas.  Attention will be given to psychological and technical problems that may occur at all stages of vocal development. Time granted for an introduction to solo vocal repertoire may be considered.  While this course focuses on foundational singing technique in Bel Canto style, course discussions and projects are expected to branch into other styles, techniques of singing, and specialized areas of interest such as Belt Technique, jazz style, the changing adolescent voice, the agiing voice, vocal issues in relation to gender transitions, etc. – the final goal being a platform from which to deal more effectively with teaching voices of all types in both the group and individual contexts.
