MUSIC 053 Class Voice Practicum (1)
(BA) This course meets the Bachelor of Arts degree requirements.
MUSIC 053 is a voice class experience that affords the pupil instruction in a class setting and in individual lessons. The weekly class meetings feature either demonstration lessons with his or her teacher (from the voice pedagogy curriculum). These lessons give the instructor the opportunity to monitor the progress of the pupils, supervise and evaluate the teaching of the pedagogy students, and make suggestions for further growth. Pupils and pedagogy students also have the opportunity to learn by observing the demonstration lessons of others in the class. Lesson evaluation forms are completed and turned in at the end of each meeting. Class concerts typically occur at mid-term and at the end of the semester. These performances give the pupils the opportunity to display their vocal and musical progress. The individual lessons that pupils receive out-of-class give them an occasion for concentrated work in a more relaxed atmosphere. It may be of interest that this is the only course offering individual voice instruction in the School of Music that does not carry an additional applied music fee. In addition to the vocal and musical advancement for pupils in MUSIC 053, this course also serves as a progressive training ground in teaching for advanced voice students. They gain important teaching experience in a closely supervised forum.
Note : Class size, frequency of offering, and evaluation methods will vary by location and instructor. For these details check the specific course syllabus.
