Vocal Training Workshop: From Specialized Practice to Jazz Repertoire Performance
From October 13th., each Saturday 3 to 5pm
520 8th Avenue, 3rd Floor, New York, NY 10018
Exploit your potential as a solo and small vocal ensemble singer. Perfect your performing skills.
This workshop will focus on the development of the singing voice through body awareness-applying the Feldenkrais Method-and voice techniques from the worlds of classical, jazz and contemporary music. Aural awareness will be improved through ear exercises and free improvisation ensemble singing. Techniques for performance practice and dealing with performance anxiety will be addressed while working in the interpretation and presentation of individual and small vocal ensemble songs in the areas of jazz and Latin jazz music.
The workshop will be divided in two periods of 10 weeks each one (a total of 40 hours).
- Open to people with a background in singing.
- There will be a final concert. To be able to participate in the final concert, students have to do Workshop Part I & Part II.
- As a finalization of the workshop there will be an open concert in March 30, 2013.
- There will be rehearsals with an accompanist musician during Workshop Part II.
