Prof. Christian Starinieri
The Masterclass is aimed at singers and choir directors who will be engaged in a training course consisting of 12 hours of theoretical study and a final test. The course will begin with an introduction on the fundamentals of correct breathing and on the right way to use the breath and the muscle chains that control it, also in vision of long successions of notes and musical phrases to be supported and managed vocally. We will then continue with the study of the pieces chosen for the Master which will then be examined and concerted in line with the introductory part analyzing the phrasing, the use of vowel weights (both that of the vowels and consonant sounds), the juxtaposition of the “winds” and the relationship between “tactus” and the holding of physical and mental energy. Main topics of the Course: Elements of anatomy and physiology Breathing and support or support of the breath Classification of voices The mute and the articulation of sounds Mask, cavity and lunge The problem of diction Importance of reading music SCHEDULES AND LOCATION OF THE COURSE: Venue: Federazione Cori Italiani Chorus Inside – APS Ente Terzo Settore Via Giuseppe Verdi n. 15 – 66100 CHIETI Hours: Saturday 19 March 2022 at 10:00/13:00 15:00/18:00 Sunday 20 March 2022 at 10:00/13:00 15:00/18:00 QUOTA: actual students 50 euro – auditors and choristers 20 euro For information: email@example.com
