Jazz Vocal Workshop

0.00

The Jazz Vocal Workshop is an intimate study of the art of a jazz vocalist focusing on learning jazz standards, improvising, transcribing, arranging, and performing in a unique style. Students will graduate from this course with a deep understanding of the history of jazz voice, with the ability to perform with a jazz band, and with the preparedness to audition for a vocal jazz program at the collegiate level. Upon graduating from the Jazz Vocal Workshop, each student will have: 1) a book of jazz standards in his/her key, as performance-ready charts using Sibelius, along with select lyric sheets (the student must know the composers’ names, along with the origin of the song, if possible); 2) the ability to improvise over the chord changes of a swing tune, a bossa nova and the blues; 3) the ability to perform a selection of songs from his/her book with a rhythm section, acting as a bandleader, completing a jazz set during his/her Senior Recital; 4) a notebook listing the selection of jazz vocalists, composers and recordings studied in the class, including arrangement and performance ideas they acquired, along with historical notes from class presentations and lectures.
