Description

SATURDAY AUGUST 19

Level 1 (beginner- some singing experience, but little/no improvisation experience required)

This level is perfect for the novice who is curious about vocal improvisation but doesn't know where to begin! The class focuses first on ear training (hearing differences between chords, identifying and singing chord tones, listening techniques for common progression recognition) and then gets the students singing through very simple chord progressions using easy, customizable patterns. We then apply what we learned to excerpts of popular jazz standards with the same chord changes and the students are encouraged to take risks, play off each other, and have fun in a no-pressure, jam session environment, improvising both with syllables and manipulating the melody with lyrics. All students will receive a thorough set of exercises for further study, reference and practice recordings, and a list of recommended reading/listening.

SUNDAY AUGUST 20


Level 2 (intermediate- singing experience, some improvisation experience required).

If you are a seasoned singer who is comfortable in the jazz idiom and wants to be able to sing through different types of chord changes with ease, this level will be perfect. Maybe you're comfortable on a blues or rhythm changes, but what comes next? This class is laid out similarly to the beginner class, but we're starting at a more advanced place with our ear training: exercises will focus on picking out guide tones and extensions in chords and basic progressions as well as creating motifs using chord and non-chord tones. This level focuses not just on getting through the changes using good note choices, but on risk taking and making interesting and informed melodic choices. All students will receive a thorough set of exercises for further study, reference and practice recordings, and a list of recommended reading/listening.
