Program Overview

The KIIS summer program in Salzburg, Austria offers you a unique opportunity to study, practice, and study the performing arts in this beautiful European city.

Salzburg also is a city of stunning architecture. Founded in the 8th Century, Salzburg displays evidence of Roman culture, the Middle Ages (notably the Festung), and wonderfully-preserved Baroque buildings. Situated on the banks of the Salzach River, nestled near the Alps, home to three universities, and filled with hospitable people, Salzburg indeed is a magical city. The program also includes a day trip to Munich and an overnight excursion to Vienna.

Courses

All courses are taught in English and are 3 credit hours. You may enroll in 1-2 courses. Courses are divided into 3 time-blocks. You cannot select 2 courses in the same time block.

Block 1

MUS 338-1 Topics: Form & Analysis

Prof. Scot Buzza   

Form and Analysis develops aural and written skills for analyzing how structural functions delineate musical form. The course will cover the full range of formal elements, from the smallest (motives and phrases) to the largest (rondo and sonata form). Through detailed score study of assigned pieces, students gain a greater understanding of formal principles.

MUS 338-2 Topics: Instrumental & Choral Conducting

Dr. Johann Van Niekerk

Student musicians will develop conducting technique through analysis and score study, individual and group exercises, study of conducting drills, individual works and excerpts, individual “podium” time for conducting and rehearsing, and self-evaluation of videotaped exercises. Special emphasis will be placed on clarity in preparations, cut-offs, cues, fermate, dynamics, articulations, changes of tempo, irregular meters,  and expressive gestures.

Block 2

MUS 310 Pedagogy for Performance Majors: Vocal Health & Techniques

Dr. Kimberly Gelbwasser Lazzeri

This course is designed for all serious voice users, including singers, actors, and teachers. Students study the various components of healthy vocal production, including anatomy, posture, respiration, registration, phonation, resonance, articulation, expression, and coordination.

MUS 327 Music History II

Dr. Johann Van Niekerk

We focus on the major composers and important performance trends from the Classical period through the present day. (*It covers the material from Music History II for a two-semester sequence, or History III in a three-semester sequence.)

Block 3

MUS 338-3 Topics: Musical Theatre Survey

Dr. Kimberly Gelbwasser Lazzeri

This course is designed to equip acting singers and singing actors with the musical and dramatic techniques required of performers in a variety of genres for the stage, from operetta to “Golden Age” and contemporary musical theater.

All KIIS course credit is awarded by Western Kentucky University. Prior to your KIIS program, please speak with your home campus academic advisor and/or study abroad office to determine course equivalencies. Grades will be transferred to your home institution in mid-August after the completion of the program. Course offerings are subject to change according to enrollment.
