Voice Performance

Justina Bernard

Step into the spotlight and shine at Bucknell, where voice performance majors have a variety of options for expressing their creativity on the stage and beyond.

Experience master classes with singers from prestigious houses like the Metropolitan Opera or Teatro all Scala. Get professional guidance to help polish your résumé, take an impressive headshot and market yourself. Take a starring role in the mainstage musical, play or opera.

Through it all, you'll receive a level of individualized attention that's simply impossible at larger schools.

We're also proud to have an open-studio policy, which means we foster a supportive atmosphere where all voice students are allowed to observe lessons taught by any teacher. We lift up all voice students, regardless of studio assignment.
