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 sections of 20 hours (a total of 40 hours).
• Open to people with a background in singing (not particularly in Jazz)
• A showcase concert will finalize the workshop. The final concert will take place June 15, 2013.
• An accompanist musician will be an integral part of the process in preparation for the final showcase concert.
