Program  Structure for singing

Concettina teaches singing for all ages. Concettina offers a holistic approach to learning

 Singing is are combining a planned program with an improvised program. The planned work is blended with a fluid approach where the studio teacher is responding to the students. This can lead to discussions and new experiences. The program is flexible. The content is discussed with the students.  The choice of songs are selected to meet the students’ needs and interests. Some students may like to follow the Australian Music Examination Syllabus for  the subject of Singing or Singing for Leisure.  If they don’t wish to do exams they can choose repertoire with teacher’s guidance that suits their voice and goals.

Singing lessons aim to help the students develop musical and technical skills to help them sing informally or in formal situations.

The studio teacher will facilitate the creative process by following this singing program structure.

The technical work aims to develop the following:

  • Posture
  • Breath management
  • Intonation
  • Clear vowels
  • Clear even tone
  • True self
  • Melodic line
  • musical concepts: beat, dynamics, rhythm, pitch, structure, tempo and organising sound.

The song studies aim to develop the following

  • Accurate performance
  • Application of technical work into the songs
  • Legato
  • Consistency of pitch
  • Appropriate style and phrasing
  • Application of drama elements into the interpretation of music and text.
  • Careful and clear presentation of words (vowels and consonants)

 Musicianship:

  • Aural training (practise aural exercises e.g. interval training, harmony work)
  • Sight reading exercises in time, rhythm, pitch, tempo, dynamics, articulation and style)

 General Knowledge:

  • Background knowledge about the composer or text or song
  • Content of the text
