Where will be getting our class materials?
Please go to www.reddit.com/r/MUS200VP. This is where you will find lectures, post assignments, and access other necessary information. The only assignments that will not be uploaded are the ones that have to be uploaded to our class Soundcloud.
What is the generally layout for each class?
Each class day, we have three major points that we will be covering. I will do a video for some lectures and live stream for others. I've made a example outline below.
Week One: Intro. to the Art of Singing - Building Your Repetiore - Introduction to Voice: Getting Ready to Sing - "Smile" by Charlie Chaplin
What is the Final Project: Vocal Recital?
As we progress with each class, you will be working on a final project which will be a song of your choice. You will upload it to our Sound Cloud and it will be like an online recital for everyone to listen to :)
You may want to buy a 1 in. or 1 1/2 in. binder to store all of your music.
