Gala Performance at the Walker House
Classes begin at 9:00 AM and run until 3:45 PM for the week.
This program accommodates more advanced musicians interested in exploring and improving their skills in the jazz genre. The classes encompass chord tones, blues, be-bop, tonal and vocal improvisation. This group has a unique opportunity to showcase their talents and newly developed skills in front of a live audience at a local commercial venue.
Students enrolled in Vocal Jazz engage in learning the facets of a vocal jazz performance. Through the repertoire of the Great American Songbook, participants learn the platforms of vocal jazz style and technique. Participants also prepare for a live vocal jazz performance, with lessons on microphone technique, lyric and musical expression, leading and singing with a jazz combo, and more! Singers of ALL levels, from complete beginner to advanced, are welcome!
