singer at microphone

Grades 8–12

Learn to unlock the full potential of your voice! Discover how to be an engaging, dynamic performer and interpreter focusing on both choral and solo vocal training. Pursue a more in-depth study of vocal skills and concepts and gain insight on the capabilities of your total vocal instrument and its possibilities.

Students immerse themselves in all aspects of music and vocal production, including advanced practice techniques, the physics of vocal production, acoustic theory, phonetics, recording techniques, dynamics, balance through blending, and the philosophy of Linklater technique, Vygotskian theory, physical awareness exercises, and traditional and experimental vocal production. Learn how to present the perfect audition every time.

Invite family and friends to the concert on the last day of the session. Each student will receive a DVD of the final performance.

To broaden exposure to the arts, the Vocal Intensive can be combined with the Songwriting Workshop, Creative Vocal Lab, Project Fashion Designer, Minecraft™ Designers and Modders, Video Game Creators and Animators, Acting Intensive, and/or Filmmaking Institute to make for a well-rounded summer experience. (Refer to youth programs for students in grade 8.)
