August 2009 - June 2017.

Instructional delivery format: 
Traditional classroom model
Learner Outcomes: 

Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to: analyze a text (score the script, find the story, the "10 Basics"); identify punctuation and conjunctions, articulate the journey/arc (What has changed by the end of the song); create a specific environment by using focal points and imagery; refine moment before/use of intro music; script the subtext; and identify obstacles/tactics (staying active and hopeful). 


This course is designed to enable students to approach music and lyrics from their own points of view. Students explore lyrics as monologues and music as  techniques to support the emotional life of the actor/character. The foundations of solid acting technique are applied to all work in Vocal Performance.
