Performance - Voice

The Voice program prepares students who aspire to be professional vocal performers in solo or group settings, studio instructors, and other professions in the music field. Performance students are given extensive opportunities to perform on stage each semester of their program as they develop their technique, expression, and overall musicality across a wide range of repertoire through intensive studio and small group instruction.

Program-Specific Course and Non-Course Requirements by Year

Specific requirements for technical exams, final juries, studio and solo recitals, and 10-minute concerts for voice students can be found in the Repertoire Requirements document. Pre-screening and live audition requirements can be found on the Admissions page on the school website. In addition to the core curriculum, voice students have the following requirements: 


  • Diction

    • Students will take three terms of diction in the Spring term of Years 1 to 3. Diction covers Italian, German, and French in that order. 

    • Diction courses correspond to repertoire requirements each year, so it is recommended to take diction according to the recommended plan of study together with Private Lessons.  

  • Vocal Ensemble & Concert

    • Beginning from Year 2, students will have 6 terms of ensemble courses total. Students will take Vocal Ensemble from Years 2 to 4. 

    • The Vocal Ensemble Concert is held at the end of each term for the public and all Vocal Ensemble students must participate as a part of their course participation grade. 

  • Vocal Coaching

    • Voice students have 2 terms of Vocal Coaching lessons during Year 4.
