Voice Studies is designed to explore the world of voice production and its application specific to the Music Theatre genre. Particular focus will be on the physiological understanding of the human voice as an infinitely variable, expressive instrument and the relevance and practice of this within the confines of past, present and future-driven music theatre voice usage. Throughout this subject, the phenomenon of individual voice difference will be taken into account and students will be encouraged to explore and value these differences in themselves and others. An ongoing focus of this subject will be the study of the inextricable link between technical voice study and artistic expression, taking into account ‘the actor’ as the germinal cell in all dramatic human voice production.
