Bc.Voice

Academy of Performing Arts in Prague - Music and Dance Faculty

The programme in Voice provides practical education in the area of voice, as well as song and operatic repertoire supplemented by music-theoretical subjects.Individual instruction in voice and required practice sessions are suitably supplemented by a final solo singing performance in the form of a public concert.The skills acquired in the area of singing and acting, as well as theoretical knowledge in musical interpretation and the history of music, can be verified by the student in practice in the form of a specific project in the opera studio under the direction of an experienced pedagogue and students in operatic directing.The programme reflects new developmental trends in the area of learned interpretation and contemporary music in the form of block seminars.Voice is taught by pedagogues who are themselves active artists, or who have had a significant artistic career.The interconnectedness of individual instruction and collective work preparing for opera projects prepares the student for a wide range of professional application.
