Learn more about about Juilliard’s Marcus Institute for Vocal Arts.

‘As a place to train, the Vocal Arts program undoubtedly has some of the greatest coaches in the world, but where Juilliard excels beyond any other program that I know is that they are instrumental in bridging the gap from student to professional,’ says alumna Julia Bullock. The Marcus Institute for Vocal Arts’s comprehensive curriculum at Juilliard is tailored to the needs of the 21st-century singer, who must not only sing but act, dance, analyse text, take on roles with significant physical demands, and interact with colleagues, designers, directors, and conductors from around the world. Faculty members will encourage you to progress at your own pace through weekly coaching sessions, specialised residencies with industry leaders, and numerous opportunities to perform on the opera and concert stage at the school, Lincoln Center, New York City, and around the world.
