MA Advanced Vocal Studies


Course Description

The MA Advanced Vocal Studies is offered through the University’s Wales International Academy of Voice under the directorship of renowned tenor, Dennis O’Neill. The programme will provide the highest possible level of tuition for singers either already in the profession or about to enter it.

The programme concentrates on issues of vocal technique and style in operatic repertoire from the baroque onwards, as well as in art song repertoire. It is predominantly a skills-based programme focusing on performance, knowledge, intellectual, communication and interaction, personal management and creativity. It is entirely practical and designed to enhance already established abilities by focusing on security of vocal technique, with particular emphasis on acquiring the technical skill in the tradition of the belcanto method.

The programme will be under the direction of Dennis O’Neill and delivery will be supported by a team of visiting tutors who are prominent in the profession. In addition to individual teaching, there will be opportunities for group teaching, master classes, participation in public events and professional placement.
