Oct-Dec 2020 Class Offering
The class offered for October-December will teach the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA). IPA is a code developed by linguists that, once learned, allows one to pronounce any language at sight. The system is especially useful to singers, both for refining diction in their native language and for learning the nuances of singing in other languages. We
will work through English diction using IPA and then start learning the movements from Rachmaninoff’s All-Night Vigil that are in Old Church Slavonic.
I’m excited for you to gain this super cool skill!
In addition to becoming fluent in IPA, we will engage in fun, general musicianship exercises. You will have the opportunity to guide the musicianship exercises that you think will be most beneficial. I will be available for individual meetings between rehearsals for those who wish to dive deeper!
