Catalog Description: Instruction in voice by a qualified private teacher. Hours to be arranged with instructor.

This fee is 100% refundable prior to the first day of the term, and non-refundable on or after the first day of term. A minimum of twelve 40-minute lessons is required per semester for 1 academic credit. Students are required to present a performance examination at the end of each term.

Course Learning Outcomes (CLOs):
After completing a minimum of twelve 40-minute lessons per semester as documented by an evaluation form completed by the instructor, the student will be able to:

1. Present a jury or performance: Preparation and performance of a representative sampling of at least two pieces of music from memory explored during the semester. (Day and time to be scheduled by the student with the instructor during the last two weeks of the semester.) Failure to schedule a jury or performance will result in an "F" grade for the semester.

2. Demonstrate correct vocal technique and knowledge of the repertoire through performance at the jury/performance.

3. Document progress at the jury/performance by an evaluation form completed by the private instructor.*

4. Demonstrate correct performance technique and performance etiquette at the jury/performance.

5. Illustrate preparation for auditions and knowledge of the vocal repertoire catalogue with an individualized repertoire book to be developed during four repertoire classes. Students will have five songs added by the end of the semester.

6. Model professionalism and preparedness by attending a rehearsal for the recital and a rehearsal for the jury with the accompanist.

* This course objective has been identified as a student learning outcome that must be formally assessed as part of the Comprehensive Assessment Plan of the college.
