Key learning outcomes:
Students completing required courses for the Master Degree of Voice will have acquired the technical and cultural competences that will allow them to fully express their interpretative personality. To meet this goal, students will closely study an overall vocal repertoire (opera, symphony, sacred, chamber) and its related techniques so that they will also learn to sing in ensembles composed of various elements. Aural training, memorization and specific knowledge related to the organizational, compositional and analytical concepts of music, and their interaction, will also be studied.
Considerable attention will be paid to the students’ acquisition of proper emotional and postural control. Upon completion of the Master Degree, students will have attained in-depth knowledge of the general stylistic, historical and aesthetic aspects related to their specific area. In addition, they will be able to carry out improvisation and will possess adequate skills in the use of computer technology for music. The ability to use a second European Union language will also be obtained.
