Subject Overview:

Singing 1 is devised as an integral part of Voice and students' singing skills are developed within the framework of their acting process. The singing component is introduced in the first two weeks of the year. The emphasis in the first block is to give students the understanding and confidence to approach a song as a performer, therefore a significant proportion of time is devoted to group singing and establishing an understanding of different music styles. The second block is introduced in Semester two after the students have completed two terms of work in Voice. The subject includes: exercises to develop breathing and supple diaphragm support; the relation of posture to singing; articulation exercises and games; games to develop rhythm sharing and pitch awareness; group singing.

Assessment: Assessment is based upon class participation, level of preparation, and the degree to which the stated outcomes have been achieved. Progressive class assessment (100%). This subject will not be graded, and will be recorded as P or N.
