Loyola University Maryland Voice Program

Loyola University Maryland

I direct the voice program at Loyola University Maryland. If you are thinking of visiting Loyola, I would be delighted to speak with you about our voice program and perhaps arrange to meet with you when you visit the Baltimore campus.  To arrange a meeting or simply to ask questions, you can leave a voice mail at 410-591-8327 or contact me at ehart2@loyola.edu

Voice at Loyola

The voice program at Loyola welcomes all singers—from beginners who have never studied formally to advanced performers. Most of our students study for multiple semesters and include Fine Arts music majors and minors, as well as singers who want to study for personal fulfillment. The goal of our program is that all Loyola voice students will achieve a level of performance skill that can allow them to pursue vocal studies and performance opportunity after graduation if they so desire.

Training for the first few semesters is geared mainly towards classical techniques that are meant to encourage healthy vocal habits in each singer while increasing vocal range, developing evenness of tone, and most importantly, helping each singer find his or her own individual sound. Many of our students enjoy singing a combination of  musical theater and classical music (including operatic music and serious song in various languages) while others prefer to explore specific genres in later semesters, such as belt, jazz, folk or pop.

Public voice recitals (concerts) are offered at the end of each semester as well as opportunity for participation in the Voice Master Class Series (see below). All voice students, beyond the first semester of study, participate, inviting family and friends.

At times, we have presented cabarets, in conjunction with Jazz at Loyola, in both professional and on-campus venues. The cabarets help develop collaborative skills among singers and instrumentalists and include both students and faculty members.

Voice Master Class Series (VMCS)

A major advantage to studying voice at Loyola is the Voice Master Class Series, generously supported by Loyola’s Center for the Humanities and Music at Loyola. Twice a year, internationally known voice teachers and singers, composers, acting teachers, coaches or music directors work with invited voice students in a public class on performance techniques for classical, theater or pop music genres. Voice teachers and students from throughout the mid-Atlantic area attend the series.
