Instructional delivery format: 
Traditional classroom model
Learner Outcomes: 

Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to: incorporate a larger range into exercises and material; demonstrate vocal strength for more powerful sounds; utilize literature that requires full legitimate sounds such Operetta; evaluate the skills needed to quickly change between styles and genre; and create a vocal journey that matches the acting journey.  


This course further enhances the focus on the entire process of singing. Students learn and perform songs from musical theatre repertoire. The technique of singing is explored and applied to the performance of these songs. Songs are used to explore the technical skills from the previous semester: working exercises with larger intervals, longer line which requires more skillful breath control, phrasing and dynamic control, tonal energy for core and ring, variation in timbre, belting and mix for both traditional and contemporary musical theatre repertoire. New skills introduced this semester include: strengthening and extending the range, developing vocal strength to create louder more powerful sounds, literature that expands to Operetta and other material that uses full legitimate sounds, developing technical skills for singing various genres, including: pop/rock and country, skill to quickly change between genres and vocal styles, and creating a vocal journey to match the acting journey.
