required unit for all BMus voice students
Students are expected to attend masterclasses of visiting artists specific to their field of study (ie classical or contemporary).
This is the sixth of six units of vocal singing that explores the connections between body, voice, breath, emotion and imagination. Emphasis will be given to developing efficient and effective vocal technique and the building of performance/stage-craft skills. A wide range of styles and idioms will be included and students will be expected to demonstrate progressive development throughout the duration of the course. A program of study will be established on an individual basis with regard to the needs and stage of development of each student.The Classical stream student's repertoire will be drawn from song literature of the 16th - 21st centuries. It is expected that the student sing Italian, German, French & Latin repertoire in the original language.
The Contemporary stream student's program demands a mastery of performance skills in a variety of styles incorporating scat singing, jazz improvisation as well as demonstrating professional stage presentation skills.
