Voice Performance Intensive (MVO4404.01, section 1)

Kerry Ryer-Parke

Intense study of vocal technique and the interpretation of vocal repertoire, designed for advanced students who have music as a plan concentration and to assist graduating seniors with preparation for senior recitals. Students will increase their knowledge of vocal technique and learn a varied spectrum of vocal repertory for performance and as preparation for further study or graduate school. A class maximum of five voice students will meet as a group and show work in a performance class, and also receive private lessons with the instructor each week (to be scheduled with the instructor). Students will also have an individual half-hour session with a pianist each week to work on repertory.

The performance part of this class will be held on Tuesdays, from 2:10PM-4:00PM, with additional voice lessons to be scheduled between the faculty and student.
