Further on the program will focus on specific music styles and techniques of acoustic or electric guitar, according to the student's preference, covering classical guitar, finger picking, rock, jazz, improvisation, etc.
The course is meant to develop a correct, healthy use of the vocal apparatus as an important condition in any style of vocal performance (pop, musical theatre, opera, etc.). Vocal technique (like vocal placement, projection, range, volume) is combined with ear training and elements of music theory. Other aspects of the artistry of vocal performance (stage presence, self-confidence, expressive communication) are also covered.
