THVC 325 The Singing Instrument

College of Performing Arts

2 credits 45.0 hours
300 level undergraduate course

The singing voice is the only instrument that is being built while it is played. The inability to physically touch the singing voice makes it difficult to learn and practice. What does the singing instrument look like? We will examine the anatomy and physiology of the singing voice as well as explore different methodologies and styles of vocal production. Part pedagogy and part performance, students will be challenged to make cogent observations and informed critiques of professional singers on recordings and performances by their peers as well as execute and display vocal improvement through performances of their own.
