Players in the class, as well as professional players from outside, will later join in to help bring each piece to life in sound. In addition, other twentieth-century works are played and discussed and occasional visits to performances of new music in New York are made. Individual meetings are arranged on a regular basis.

Two Credits. This workshop is designed to help music majors learn to hear in their heads what they see on the page, to sing what they hear, and to put on the page what they hear in their heads--each of which requires its own set of mental and physical processes. Students will undergo exercises in melodic, harmonic, and rhythmic dictation, sight-singing, interval and chord recognition, and so on. Three sessions are offered, on Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday. Intended for music majors. See Bari Mort before registering.

In this singing class we explore the art songs of America, England, France and Germany, including some opera arias and ensembles depending on the make up of the class. At the same time we learn the necessary technique to perform them successfully. Each class will be divided into two parts. The first will deal with vocal technique, and the second with technical issues that arise from individual performance. Requirements: the ability to match pitches, and an adequate vocal range. Pianists will be assigned individual singers to work with and coached in the various musical styles.
