The introductory level course will teach participants breathing techniques, vocal warm-up and strengthening exercises, and how to identify and expand vocal range. It introduces the student to ear, diction, rhythm, and harmony training, and basic music theory. The ability to read music is not necessary. Aspiring vocalists will work on proper body posture, and be given performance and voice-maintenance tips. With these new skills, you'll be able to sing dozens of songs with guitar accompaniment from the instructor's Song Request List. A vocal evaluation, with suggestions for improvement, will be included for each student. Students age 12 and older are welcome. CRN 11454. Held 6 Mondays, March 18 through April 22.
