MUSC-341   Vocal Choral Pedagogy

Offered upon sufficient demand, otherwise by Independent Study; check with the Music chair. The course is designed to provide practical study in vocal-choral training and rehearsal techniques, which help to develop singing skills in the classroom and in the ensemble. Lectures, demonstrations, and discussions focus on vocal techniques, which develop healthy singing and pleasing tone quality in children, adolescents, and adults. Course work includes listening, textbook readings, written reports on field trips, and observations of off-campus choral ensembles. In addition, each student will prepare demonstrations of conducting and applying the vocal techniques required for all age levels.
