Song and dance has been essential to the fabric of human societies since our very beginnings. We sing to celebrate unions, accomplishments, and times of year; mothers rock and coo their babies to sleep, and children learn their a-b-c’s to the captivating sounds of “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” and its companions across the globe. In this course, students are provided with an opportunity to consider the role that singing plays in their lives, both personally and interpersonally. How does vocal activity contribute to productive social subsistence, preservation and change? What is the impact of singing, both in groups and individually, on aspects of health, identity formation, and one’s sense of self-efficacy? By engaging in diverse vocal performance and observation practices, students grapple with these central questions.
