2016-17 GUIDE TO MUSIC SCHOOLS

Academy of Vocal Arts
Academy of Vocal Arts
MISSION
The objective of the Academy of Vocal Arts is to ensure that a student will be a thinking artist who is both self-sufficient musically and dramatically, knowledgeable about the field of opera and voice, well-prepared in foreign languages, and able to pursue a career in the world’s great opera houses. Performances of opera, art song and oratorio give each student the opportunity to learn masterworks under the supervision of an outstanding faculty, and to perform them in venues open to the public and reviewed by music critics.
WHAT DISTINGUISHES THIS SCHOOL
The full course of study at the Academy of Vocal Arts is four years. It should be emphasized that all training is directed towards preparation for a career in singing rather than toward the fulfillment of set academic requirements or a career as a teacher.
