College voice classes offer instruction for students of every ability. Beginners as well as students pursuing transfer music degrees will benefit from any College Voice class. Students are offered practical tools for accessing their inherent vitality, expressiveness, and grace. Performing opportunities include recitals, original operettas (Winter quarter) and collaboration with the WWCC Theatre Department. MUSC 217 offers a more in-depth study of specific elements of efficient vocal technique and performance. These include vocal purity, the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) and appropriate vocal literature for each individual. Choral singers, all music majors, elementary education majors as well as students who simply want to continue to improve their singing will benefit from this class.
