Through the continued study of appropriate repertoire, technical exercises, vocalises, diction and relevant languages, students will develop their individual technical and musical potential as singers, together with a sound understanding of interpretive principles, stylistic integrity and performance skills. Students are expected to undertake a minimum of 12 hours per week of structured individual practice, technical work, repertoire study, language study and sight-singing practice. Through weekly Performance Classes students will be given the opportunity to develop a range of preparation and performance skills, and will also develop a range of skills and approaches which will aid their technical development. Students will also be given the opportunity to present, perform, and discuss their current repertoire with fellow students as 'work in progress'. Through the Stagecraft & Theatre Skills Class students will experience, learn and assimilate a range of structured approaches and skills pertinent to music theatre, opera and other stage-based art forms. Some of the classes will be undertaken in conjunction with the State Opera of South Australia. Students will also be paid a stipend from the Conservatorium so that they can undertake intensive 1:1 vocal tuition and coaching with an Elder Conservatorium approved Classical Voice teacher.
