Contemporary Vocal Workshop

The NYU Steinhardt Vocal Performance Program offers a two-week contemporary voice workshop during which students learn about vocal technique, vocal function and basics of vocal anatomy and physiology, while employing the tools learned in activities including but not limited to: ensembles, solo performances, private lessons and coachings, workshops and masterclasses with master teachers and guests currently working in the field. Students will have a chance to showcase their talent and progress from material learned during the two-week intensive program at a final concert at the conclusion of the workshop.

Audition Requirements

Please prepare two contrasting songs of your choice from the contemporary repertoire. Selections can include any genres you'd like: pop, rock, country, classical, jazz, musical theatre, R&B, etc. Please upload the two selections as two separate videos. You may choose to showcase the contrast in your selections by: 

  • Choosing songs in different styles that will allow you to demonstrate contrasting vocalisms
  • Choosing songs in a similar styles that explore different aspects of your voice
  • Choosing a ballad versus an uptempo, where you can demonstrate the ability to sing sustained/legato lines versus singing a patter song or a song with a moderate to fast tempo.

Your video should count with the collaboration of a live musician (pianist, guitarist, etc.) However, due to the current circumstances, applicants who do not have a video submission of their song selections pre-recorded with a live pianist may submit recordings using tracks for summer 2020 submissions.
