Vocal Production 2.2

Spring 2020

Taught By: Andrea Haring

Section: B

CRN: 1111

Credits: 3

Our studies this year will refine the techniques of the Vocal Production studies begun in Year 1. The fundamental work associated with the free, flexible, and colorful release of spoken thoughts and feelings will coordinate with clear speech and expressive language use. An enhanced attention to communication will demand that the actor learn to balance emotions, intellect, body, and voice. Our work will seek to reveal the depth of the imagination, through the text, by the use of the voice that must be long, wide, strong and tender enough to do so successfully. The vocal work will be guided by the specific needs of the character and the play. There is the expectation that complete fluency in Neutral American Dialect can be accessed at will, and that there is a working knowledge and method for applying Classical American Dialect and Standard British Dialect to text work. Shakespeare and other stylistically challenging texts are the focus in the second year course. Storytelling through songs will inspire and enhance the sensorial experience of form, structure, rhythm, tempo, and dynamic variety.
