In the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, the boundaries of vocal technique have been expanded into realms heretofore unexplored. The physical nature of singing has not changed; only the ends to which it is employed. Two distinct styles have emerged: classical and contemporary/musical theatre technique. Pedagogues from the two fields teach many of the same concepts, but differ in their emphasis on certain elements over others. This thesis discusses the elements of singing stressed roughly equally by both styles of singing, and describes certain techniques used to teach them.
