Through the understanding and use of proper vocal technique, students will musically perform traditional and contemporary Musical Theatre, as well as "pop" pieces, implementing many vocal colors and styles.

Vocal Health

Students will demonstrate knowledge of vocal technique outlined in the text through taking a series of quizzes.

Repertoire and Performance

Students will memorize and perform repertoire that is representative of the various vocal styles used in Musical Theatre literature.

Sight Reading

Students will expand sight-reading skills by participating in oral drills, enhancing the ability to study and learn musical scores.

Personal Core Values

Through class devotionals, group discussion and personal reflection (journal writing) each student will begin to synthesize his/her growing skills with his/her moral, spiritual and ethical values.


By supporting the growth of each member of the class, each student will develop a sense of community and sharing in the process of magnifying his/her own talent, thus downplaying the intensely competitive element of the performing business.
