8:00 – 9:00            Parent Drop Off, Registration and Check-in (breakfast snack provided)


9:00            What is Singing? It's More Than the Voice (Pamela Hart)

In the morning workshop, participants will sing with a band - Piano, Bass and Drums

Discussion about the body, not just the voice, as a rhythm instrument, the form of a song (bar, bridge, tag, improvised ending), different rhythms, melody, and delivery.  Demonstrations by Pamela Hart


10:00            Know the Code - Communicating with Musicians 

While you perform, you will need to communicate with musicians without talking.  We will show you how!  Some demonstrations by Pamela Hart and participants


        Activity – Participants sing with the band with coaching from Pamela Hart.

Explain:  Parts of a song and signals to get there:  Top, Bridge, coda (tag), end

(index finger or top of head, nose, fist, circular wave, cut off/or hand down and hold, eye contact with soloist for coming back in)


10:30             Break


10:45             Song Structure, Key, Music Styles, Stage Presence, Coloring the Song, Posture –                         “What to Do with Your Hands”

Objective – By the end of this session, singers will understand the parts of the songs, music rhythms and styles, how to have better stage presence, and how to use different vocal qualities, audience rapport, and posture for better stage presence.  They will also get tips on overcoming stage freight.


Activity - Singers Select Songs they want to perform.  Write down tempo, determine the key, what will happen before they start singing, whether there’s a solo, when they will come back in.  How the song will end.  How they will count off the tune.  If the song repeats, what will be different the second time?


12:00            Lunch (Provided) 

12:45            Phrasing, rhythm, vocal interpretation (Pamela Hart)

        In afternoon sessions, participants will sing with a professional Karaoke presenter

Demonstration of singing on top of, in front or behind rhythm to enhance vocal interpretation of song by selecting various standards and giving students the opportunity to practice singing within the music as a lead instrument.  Participants perform group singing.


1:30            Coaching with participants as they sing

                        Elements reviewed and demonstrated

                        With the advent of iTunes, singers are now carrying around tracks in their cell phones ready to sing at any time or place.  In this session, we focus on incorporating style and stage presence with singing with tracks!  Participants will let their hair down and have fun.


                        Pamela Hart will continue to coach during Karaoke singing.
