MU 5552 - Diction I for Singers


This course will use the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) to present a systematic approach to the pronunciation of vocal literature in Italian, Latin and German, examining those elements of pronunciation, which must be modified from the spoken language into the singing language. The course will require solo and group preparation of songs in each language, including precise translations for foreign language literature and will provide for class criticism and discussion of performance in an effort to develop critical hearing.

Credits: 2 SH
