Bocconi University - Campus Life in collaboration with Coro Bocconi Studenti
This singing course is held online in bilingual mode (Italian/English). It’s free and open to Bocconi students, faculty and staff. Specific theoretical and technical knowledge is not required, participants should simply have a passion for music.
The course aims to work on each participant’s vocal technique through short, fun and educational lessons. The language of vocal music for performance will be taught, making learning easy, immediate and usable. Furthermore, as the final project, at least one song will be recorded in MP3 and MP4 format.
Instructor: Maestra Martina Zambelli
Calendar: Mondays from 6:45 to 8:15pm from 15 February to 3 May (the course will break during the partial exams period and the Easter holidays)
PROGRAM: Lessons will be held by Maestra Martina Zambelli (www.martinazambelli.com) through Zoom video conference and will last 90 minutes. In the first half hour, each class will address a different topic of choral practice: diaphragmatic breathing; control of the epiglottis; command of the movements of true and false vocal cords; management of the soft palate; mastery of the sublingual muscles and key theoretical musical concepts. Then, a maximum of 5 singers per lesson, chosen by the instructor and who agree to participate, will perform a piece with an arrangement found online. The performances will relate to the topics covered during the theoretical section, sharing techniques and an emotional journey with classmates, who will then comment on the concepts learned, applying them to practice. The piece(s) that each participant will learn and record on their own using leader tracks will be assembled by the instructor in complex polyphonies. They may differ by era and genre, in order to make the vocal ensemble as flexible as possible and learning more exciting.
