1 credit 15.0 hours

This course provides a basic understanding of how the voice works when either speaking or singing. Topics of consideration will include the anatomy and physiology of the vocal mechanism and its specialized subsystems of respiration, phonation, resonance, and articulation. Common vocal problems and viable solutions will also be identified and discussed. Preventive voice care will be examined with a focus on designing a personal voice care maintenance plan that will ensure the preservation of the physical and mental aspects of voice use in both training and performance.
