The Vocal Arts Department guides motivated students to develop their voices and performance abilities, study a variety of song repertoire, and explore the art of songwriting.  SPCPA Vocal Arts graduates are prepared to enter into Songwriting programs.

Vocal Arts students spend their first two years on general pre-conservatory vocal studies, with courses in Music Theory, Studio, Performance Skills, Ensemble, and Music History.  Before entering their Junior Year, both returning and new Vocal Arts students will demonstrate their vocal development in Juries or Placement Sessions and discuss their musical interests and aspirations in one-on-one interviews.

Over the course of their term at SPCPA, Vocal Arts students develop their voices, learn to accompany themselves on an instrument, and learn to work with current music technology.
