Walz, Ivy
ProQuest LLC, D.M.A. Dissertation, University of Cincinnati
This document examines the current status of voice teacher education in the 21st century, focusing on the undergraduate experience as an important first step, and links that experience to current trends in pedagogical training as a whole. This document includes the results of a curriculum survey detailing the undergraduate vocal pedagogy courses from three music schools that specialize in undergraduate education; Oberlin Conservatory, Lawrence University and Ithaca College. Additionally, this document provides an overview of sources published since the year 2000 which promote excellence in teaching; such as gaining expertise in the anatomy and physiology of the voice, developing a broader range of responses to vocal issues, and recognizing student individuality. Finally, this document presents a broader discussion of the current training of 21st century voice teachers and what developments should be made to better equip them.
