LOIll'SI'I'l1l' C0llN!'I'l'l!,f0I'jj of Music DEPARTMENT OF DRAMATIC ART AND EXPRESSION In all fields of endeavor the keynote of success is personality. The vital significance of the study of expression to each individual lies .in the fact that it deals essentially with the development and expression of personality. Through reading comes the opportunity to enlarge one's intellectual, imaginative and emotional equipment. In oral interpretation of literature, the desire to harmonize feeling with thought, to gain a mastery of self in thought and emotion, and to express in our own lives the recognized relationships between the life inside us and the world without -us, means a gain in our ability towards self-expression, through the medium of the voice and body and as a consequence an enrichment of that inde- pendent psychologrical force which we term personality. The wo1'k of the department of Expression and Dramatic Art is presented in small classes combined with private lessons, each course of study being adapted to meet the needs of the individual. School children may enroll for one class or for two classes with the privilege of one private lesson a week for repertoire. OUTLINE OF COURSE FIRST YE.'lI?.' 22 credits. Slzzrlio ll'orL'.' Repertoire and Criticism CSO private lessonsf, 4 credits. FUNDAMENTALS OF EXPRESSION AND LITERARY INTERPRETATION The ability to interpret orally the printed page connates a training in clear and logical thinking, in physical poise, in conversational fluency, in emotional control, and in sympathetic appreciation, which is the purpose ofthe outlined course. Alertness, which is the first requisite of a reader, implies a focused attention, expectant interest and a mental and physical readiness to act, which transforms the words of the printed page into living thought, with the reader, as the medium for the expression of thc message. The desire to convey this thought, to present this picture, to portray this emotion sincerely and sympathetically means the elimination of self-consciousness, the stimulation of intellectual and emotional responsiveness and the broadening of the social sympathies. The awakening of personality comes with this desire toward self-expression, and to render the voice and body .more adequate for the expression of personality is the basic principle of the first year of study.
