THEA 1700 VOICE FOR THE ACTOR

This course is the second in a two part series and will focus on song interpretation (paraphrasing, subtexting, given circumstances, emotions, images, and releasing) and articulation (vowel and consonants).  The singing fundamentals learned in the first part of the series (relaxation, alignment, breath, and placement of resonance) will continue to be employed throughout this course.   This course will facilitate an atmosphere in which the student will be able to form confidence in their personal abilities to act while singing a heighten text.  These personal abilities will be enhanced as the student learns to apply the fundamental techniques of singing.  This course will also teach the student versatility and clarity in several styles of music.  Finally, this course will prepare a student to successfully perform songs within various styles and contexts.
