LISTENING ASSIGNMENTS DUE

Voice students, your listening assignments are due by 9am on May 8. This means your journal entries in your Google documents must be posted BEFORE juries begin! This doesn't have to be great prose, just a few lines about what you listened to, and what you noticed and learned about what you can apply to your own singing. Many of you have been doing this already in spurts, so you're on your way. You may complete your assignment in a variety of ways:


  • Watch/listen to 4 hours of YouTube, posting the links in your Google doc
  • Listen to a four hour opera on CD (Mozart's Figaro is a good example)
  • Watch/listen to a combination of links on YouTube (good vocal role models have been provided for you: if you need more, let me know)
  • Watch 4 hours of opera video from the library
  • Go to medici.tv.com and choose something to watch
  • Start a 14-day free trial on http://www.classicalarchives.com/
  • Any other creative solution...just be sure it's a professional classical singer!


As always, if you need guidance, please email me.
