Course description: Skills for Singing is a co-curricular, non-credit, no-fee course offering weekly voice training in a group setting, with a particular focus on understanding how the voice functions and regularly applying that knowledge through class repertoire. Each class will also devote time to reading and sight-singing Western musical notation. All experience levels are welcome, as each student will grow from where they are and discover more about their unique voice, personal musicianship, and artistic style. Participation in the course is encouraged for those new to singing, those looking to audition for the Harvard Choruses, operas, musicals, or a cappella groups,  or any new members of the Harvard ensembles looking to further their vocal abilities.


The Fall 2021 section will take between 15-20 students, pending space restrictions. Priority is given to Harvard College undergraduates, but Harvard graduate students and Harvard faculty/staff/affiliates are welcome for consideration and greatly contribute to the class experience. All singers will be masked and follow the Harvard University protocols concerning COVID-19.

NOTE: Enrollment for the Fall 2021 semester is now closed. The course will also be offered in the spring 2022 semester.
