A Capella and Rubato Singing

Students will learn the skills necessary to sing A Cappella (without accompaniment, one of the most challenging aspects of singing) and Rubato, by phrasing with the accompanist in a more intimate and personal way as well as working on solidifying pitch and rhythmic sense. Students will also learn how to work in a rubato tempo, singing the lyric expressively with rhythmic freedom by manipulating the tempo at the discretion of the vocalist.
