Subject Overview:

This unit focuses upon The Actors Voice at Work and is designed to refine and strengthen voice skills in performance. Students are required to develop techniques and approaches which serve the vocal requirements of performance as well as maintaining technical rigour by exercising autonomy with individual practice and extending and committing to vocal imagination within the performance requirements. Class assignments are ongoing throughout the year and may take the form of prepared or impromptu sight reading, the development of choral work, group and solo prose/poetry readings and a selection of texts which extend the vocal requirements of the actor in relation to a variety of performance styles and contexts.

Assessment: Assessment is based upon class participation, level of preparation, the degree to which outcomes have been met, and the ability to process and integrate the material into performance work. Notification of unsatisfactory progress may be made at any time during the year. Progressive assessment (20%); class assignments (10%); voice in performance (70%).
