The Vocal Mechanism *

ONLINE
February 3
May 4, 2020

An advanced approach to the recognition of vocal problems and their resolutions, emphasizing student voices in grades 6-12. Learn how the voice functions by studying the physical and acoustic aspects of the voice through lecture, discussion and demonstration. Topics include body awareness, breath management, phonation, resonance, registration, vocal health, and the changing adolescent voice.

* The Vocal Mechanism is offered at two course levels. Students enrolled in the MMEd program at VanderCook are eligible to enroll at the 500 level. Students not enrolled in the MMEd program who wish to earn graduate credit as a MECA Continuing Education student should register at the 7000 level. The difference in credits earned and tuition cost is attributed to the difference in tuition rates for the MMEd and MECA Continuing Education programs. If you are unsure which level is best for you, please contact us directly at meca@vandercook.edu.
