Musical art, academic singing, professional and pedagogical culture, neuroscience, neuroaesthetics


The article attempts to comprehend the latest achievements in such a field of neuroscience as neuroaesthetics, which analyzes the nature of music and musical creativity through the prism of ontogenetic features of the human brain. Using numerous examples it is shown that the key ideas of neuroaesthetics in general correspond to the spirit of Kantian a prioriism, reinterpreted in current terms of cognitive neuroscience; an attempt is made to justify the necessity of increased attention to the urgency of updating the professional training of vocal teachers, revealed the ideal structure of the competence of a vocal coach on the basis of systematized by him views of different experts, as well as proposed to make individual principled emphasis on a comprehensive study of trends in current musical culture by students; as a conscious and purposeful familiarization with such, in his view, is an essential element in the system of today's professional competence. The personal and professional characteristics that every future vocal coach should possess are revealed in great detail; the special importance of each of these components of success in competing in the pedagogical labor market is emphasized.

In addition, key features of the dissemination of musical information in today's society, the impact of network technologies on the specialized training of teachers and recipients, the formation of the technological basis of vocal and sound culture aesthetics of academic singing of the future teacher are highlighted. As a conclusion, further, more in-depth study of the raised problems is proposed, since it is not sufficiently developed at the scientific level.
