Course description

In this course which is open to all levels students explore how to create a polished and convincing solo song performance. Each class meeting begins with a vocal warmup reviewing the basics of good singing technique and ear training. Through individual work we approach each song from a vocal musical and dramatic standpoint discussing character story and presentation. Students delve deeply into the song texts by working them as monologues learn vocal techniques that strengthen their song performance and study the musical score and how it enhances the lyrics. The final consists of a polished presentation of each student's song using all the elements explored throughout the term and a brief report of the song show composer and lyricist.
