Vocal Arts students take specialized music classes alongside peers who have similar interests. All students in this conservatory are immersed in the fundamental elements of music as the basis for artistic expression, regardless of genre. These areas of study include theory, musicianship, history, diction, and piano classes, as well as classes focused on solo and ensemble singing. As students acquire greater musicianship and artistry, more genre-specific classes are offered in the fields of classical, jazz and commercial singing. All students participate in one or more ensembles and experience the camaraderie of shared music-making. Students also benefit from the knowledge, experience, and high-caliber education of the faculty. Renowned guest artists, university faculty, and industry leaders visit the school’s campus to share their expertise and creativity through master classes, lectures, presentations, and hands-on training.
