The Voice Area of the Florida State University College of Music has an established world-wide reputation as a leader in the field of voice study. Voice majors receive individual attention from the members of the full-time artist voice faculty. The undergraduate voice performance curriculum is one of the finest in the country with courses in music theory, music history, language and diction study, vocal and opera literature, vocal pedagogy, conducting, and opera training. Active participation in opera productions and choral ensembles is an important part of the undergraduate experience. An undergraduate degree in voice from FSU is an excellent way to prepare for admission to the finest graduate schools. In addition to voice study, graduate students at the MM or DM level are able to work with our staff of professional vocal and opera coaches, take graduate level courses in vocal pedagogy, vocal and opera literature, perform in Florida State Opera productions and sing in graduate vocal ensembles. Due to our excellent instrumental programs, our singers are able to perform with first-rate pianists, chamber ensembles, and orchestras. Singers with degrees in voice and opera from FSU have found careers performing in major opera houses throughout the world and teaching in our nation's finest music schools and conservatories. Undergraduate voice scholarships and graduate voice and opera assistantships are available to qualified students.
