Instructional delivery format:
Traditional classroom model
Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to: identify the journey/arc of songs; create specific environments; utilize focal points and imagery; articulate the moment before by utilizing introductory music; recognize the art of conversation and the need for the "others voice"; identify obstacles for the character/self in the song; utilize tactics to achieve objectives in the song; perform active and positive/hopeful choices (doing versus feeling); and employ personalization techniques to communicate the story of a song.
This course is designed to enable actors to approach music and lyrics from their own points of view. Lyrics are explored as monologues and music is explored as a technique to support the emotional life of the actor/character. The foundations of solid acting technique are applied to all work in Vocal Performance. Materials for the semester are selected from various composer groups, including: Irving Berlin, Noel Coward, George Gershwin, Jerome Kern, Kurt Weill, Vincent Youmans, Harold Arlen, Burton Lane, Frank Loesser, Frederick Loewe, Cole Porter, Richard Rodgers, and Arthur Schwartz.
