MAS Vocal Ensemble

MAS Vocal Ensemble

We have an exciting new opportunity at Music Academy South! As a voice faculty, we have decided to open up our vocal ensemble auditions to any interested students. As vocal educators, and trained vocalists, we feel strongly that performing within an ensemble(choir, chorus, etc.) is a vital part of a musican's trainging and career. Performing in as ensemble helps develop sight reading, part singing, ear training, balance and blend, sense of beat and rhythm, as well as the ability to learn and work with the other musicians.

Composition & Theory

Composition & Theory

No music-writing experience necessary! This is for students who enjoy creating music on their instrument, with their voice, or in their head, but need help getting the notes onto the paper. Beginners are welcome-if you've never had a music lesson, you will learn about the various notes and their values and pitches and how to write them (notate) on the musical staff. For intermediate or advanced students who already know how to notate, you can delve right into composition study, which includes exercises in counterpoint, harmony, as well as polishing and fine-tuning your own compositions until they are cohesive and bear your unique "thumbprint." Students may also use music engraving software to electronically notate music onto the staff and create professional-looking scores.

Composition & Theory

Composition & Theory

This course is for the beginning music student who wants to learn how to read, write, count, and play music on the staff, or for the intermediate or advanced student who wishes to improve their abilities in rhythm, music-reading, notation, score analysis, and even composition. Our experienced AP Music Theory teacher can help the student with AP coursework and to prepare for the AP test.
