COURSES OF STUDY THE regular and special courses of each year are 1 divided into groups (see Horarium, pp. 32 and 33).
Students may elect additional courses when their acquirements permit.
The work of each student is arranged after a careful study of his highest possibilities and his fundamental needs. All regular courses include work: First, for the development of mind, body and voice. Second, students are led from the first, to study literature, poetry and art through interpretation and artistic endeavor. Third, the student is given studies and contact with people in order to develop his social and sympathetic instincts. Fourth, early in their course the students are given a certain work which prepares them for professional attainments. Fifth, later, studies are assigned that will lead the student to comprehend the philosophic nature of all expression.
Certain courses, especially advanced and elective courses, are given in alternate years. A few are given only once in three years.
All regular courses include some work in each of the following fields: (1) Personal Growth and Development; (2) Creative Expression; (3) The Study of Literature and Art; (4) The Philosophy of Expression; (5) Professional Attainments; (6) Life and Social Relations. A synopsis of specific courses under each of these groups follows:
GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT Growth presupposes established natural conditions; and development is the co-ordination of man's thinking with natural growth conditions.
The technical courses for Voice, Body and Mind are the means used in the School of Expression to establish nature; and practice upon the various forms of oral expression establishes natural conditions in Speech, thus preparing for the fullest development in creative activity.
I. VOCAL EXPRESSION
Vocal Expression centers in the study of thinking and in its most direct revelations in modulations of voice and body. Attention, discrimination and sequence of ideas are established. This natural method secures intensity of individual impression, and shows the relation of impression to expression. The interpretation of literature is the means or test used. Each student is thus given a method of self-study and the direct use of his own creative powers.
First Year Courses: 1. Elements of Vocal Expression. 2. Foundations of Expression.
Second Year Courses: 3. Logic of Vocal Expression. 4. Imagination. 5. Assimilation and Participation. 6. Rhythm and Melody in Speech.
Third Year Courses: 7. Harmony of Expression. 8. Imagination and Dramatic Instinct.
Fourth Year Courses: 9. Psychology of Vocal Expression. 10. Unity and Tone Color.
II. TRAINING OF THE VOICE The method of developing the voice is Technical and Psychic. The training is divided into two phases: a, the securing of right tone production; b, the improvement of speech.*
a. Development of Tone. First Year Course: 1. Qualities of Tone. 2. Simple problems in the Spoken Word associated with technical training. Second Year: 3. Principles of Vocal Training. 4. Emission of Voice. 6. Agility of Voice. Third Year: 6. Resonance. 7. Flexibility of Voice in Expression. 8. Dramatic Modulations of Voice.
b. Development of Speech. First Year: 1. Phonology. Second Year: 2. Pronunciation. Third Year: 3. Visible Speech.
* Methods of developing tone are based upon those of François Lamperti and are adapted to the voice in speaking. The work in articulation and speech elements is founded upon the Visible Speech of Prof. Alexander Melville Bell.
