Perfect diction is essential for opera singers in order to make their performance linguistically understandable without altering the quality of the sound. Understanding what you are singing through correct diction helps to improve your technical aspects, as well as the formal and interpretive ones. This course will explore the principles of phonetics as it applies to singers. It is designed to cover the basics of the International Phonetic Alphabet, with attention to the German and French language, and will focus primarily on practical application, critical listening and vocal performances. Grades will be determined based on homework, lyrics of the scores, and in-class performances.
