COURSE DESCRIPTION

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 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 Italian language, and will focus primarily on practical application, critical listening and vocal performances. If time permits, we will touch briefly on Italian dialects like Neapolitan. Grades will be determined based on homework, lyrics of the scores, and in-class performances.
