Abstract

There have been a variety of different approaches to vocal performance and pedagogy from the very beginning of singing. The different functions and stylistic demands of singing, from sacred, to classical concert repertoire, to "background noise," have challenged all singers as to how to best produce a sound. There are several leading pedagogues that serve as guides for today's modern singers of art literature. This research specifically looked into the work of pedagogies of Richard Miller, Clifton Ware, and others. The objective of this research was to determine how different pedagogues contribute to the variety of styles of singing apparent in today's leading opera houses and schools of singing.

There have been a variety of different approaches to vocal performance and pedagogy from the very beginning of singing. The different functions and stylistic demands of singing, from sacred, to classical concert repertoire, to "background noise," have challenged all singers as to how to best produce a sound. There are several leading pedagogues that serve as guides for today's modern singers of art literature. This research specifically looked into the work of pedagogies of Richard Miller, Clifton Ware, and others. The objective of this research was to determine how different pedagogues contribute to the variety of styles of singing apparent in today's leading opera houses and schools of singing.
