Voice

BU School of Music offers the best of both worlds: an immersive music program and the diverse opportunities of a major research university. So dive deep, and be transformed not only as an artist but as a leader, entrepreneur, advocate, and thinker.

As a member of the Voice Department you will be immersed in a program of study commensurate with the demands of professional singing. At each level of study, you will pursue the highest standards of training in developing technique, repertoire, languages, and musicianship. We believe the artist synthesizes all aspects of training with heart, mind, and body.
