Workshop Outline

I.Warming up the voice:
• Where to  start
• What to look for
• What to listen for
• Awareness of the body

II. Using solo and ensemble literature to improve critical vocal skills:

• Develop a range of tone colors
• Sing with grounding (anchoring)
• Expand the pitch range
• Make performance expressive
• Build diction skills
• Characterize different texts
• Build confidence in performance

Purpose:  To provide amateur male choral singers with an opportunity to build specific
vocal skills with a skilled voice teacher. The training is not style specific and would be
useful for traditional, gospel, and pop as it reinforces good vocal habits at the beginning
of the choral singing season.

Workshop Leader: Dr. William Cutter, Director of Choral Programs at the Massachusetts
Institute of Technology where he conducts the MIT Concert Choir and Chamber Chorus.
