Breath and Shape: Pursuing Optimal Efficiency and Beauty in Singing

The course will consider the physiological, psychological and expressive components of singing with applications for teachers, conductors and performers. Consideration will be given to the ways in which an understanding of healthy vocal production impacts work in the classroom, in choral ensembles and in solo performance. Discussion topics will include building resonance by linking efficient airflow to optimal vocal shape, managing tensions that inhibit balanced tone, and using language and diction to enhance vocal production and expressive potential. Activities will include discussion of assigned readings, performances by course participants and analysis of recordings by exemplary singing artists.
