Students are trained to be professional vocalists capable of functioning in any branch of the musical profession, both on the stage and in the studio. Therefore they learn to interpret and improvise in various jazz styles and in black music, rock, fusion, pop and Latin (Brazilian). All this is made possible by the vocal faculty's broad range of teachers, and regular guest teachers such as Kurt Elling, Peter Eldridge, Nancy Marano, Gretchen Parlato and Becca Stevens.

Each student is taught by two principal teachers, for vocal-technical and artistic aspects respectively. The two teachers are jointly responsible for the end result. It is possible for vocal students to study with various teachers in the course of their four-year study.
