The goal of the voice faculty at the CMA is to help students grow as musicians and as people, and become the best singers they can be, regardless of their degree program. The voice faculty members come from diverse backgrounds and experience, and work together to make sure students are getting what they need to develop technically, musically, and personally. Throughout their course of study, voice students develop their skills through weekly lessons and master classes with studio teachers, workshops and recitals with visiting artists, and frequent performances in studio and area seminars. 

Performance opportunities abound for voice students, and include concerts, studio and area recitals, fully staged operas and scenes programs, competitions, and plenty of other events.  Students are encouraged to take advantage of our Opera Department, our many choral ensembles, along with groups devoted to jazz, early music, contemporary music, and an abundance of extra-curricular ensembles and performing groups.

At the College of Musical Arts, we are fortunate to have generous donors who provide funding for high-profile artists and scholars to visit and teach our students.  In recent years some of our guest artist residencies have included Marilyn Horne, Samuel Ramey, Ann Baltz (OperaWorks), Margo Garrett, Richard Hundley, Libby Larson, Thomas Pasatieri, Tom Cipullo, Stefan Zander, Frank Ticheli, Terence Blanchard, Branford Marsalis, David Lang, William Bolcom, Gustav Meier, Bright Sheng, Alice Parker, Johan Sundberg, Robert Spano, Jennifer Higdon, Jon West, Eric Gibson, and Nicholas Wuehrmann.
