Vocal and Choral Music

Home Academics Vocal and Choral Music

The Vocal & Choral studies at Sacramento City College (SCC) has a rich history in education and performance that started in 1968.

Student-driven learning forms the heart of our collaborative approach to vocal education. Under the direction of Professor Daniel Paulson the vocal and choral music program creates a transformative learning experience, which includes a strong foundation in healthy vocal technique, applied performance training, and the concrete opportunity to develop musicianship skills through the performance of creative and challenging choral repertoire.

A key feature of the vocal program is our mentorship program, which provides beginning and intermediate voice students the rare opportunity to receive regular one-on-one coaching from advanced student mentors while providing an exceptional opportunity to begin training in vocal pedagogy at the community college level. The foundational philosophy of the program posits that everyone benefits when given the opportunity to both learn and serve.

Students at every level of vocal experience are welcome and the program is designed to facilitate the growth of majors and non-majors alike. Vocal & Choral Music Students at SCC will participate in weekly vocal instruction and repertoire courses, study outside of the classroom with vocal coaches and accompanists, and perform in one of the two choral performance ensembles as well as in our public vocal recitals.

Students who complete the program will have received training at the highest standard in practice and performance and will have the necessary skills to transfer to a four-year institution in Vocal or Choral Music.
