Vocal Performance Section 2

This is a repertoire-building class with emphasis on preparing the student to pass jazz performance proficiency (at a minimum) and the sophomore jury. Students are expected to utilize the standard song literature and research the composers. In singing, good storytelling is emphasized. Interpretation of lyrics and creating lyrics based on the story are stressed. Communication with the audience and stage presence, as well as microphone and amplification techniques are covered. This course is a part of the required vocal curriculum, depending on evaluation placement. 1–2 credits
