JAZZ SINGING BASICS

10 week course - starting January 2014 at VIC

Hear It! Love It! Sing It!

This course is dedicated to those who wish to learn the craft of jazz singing and jazz standards made famous by singers and writers such as Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, Billie Holiday, and Diana Krall.


The A to Z of jazz singing will begin with vocal warm ups. You will then learn group & solo songs and start building a repertoire of jazz standards. This will lead into making songs your own, using jazz phrasing and styling, lyric interpretation, simple arranging ideas, and singing your own scat solos. The course will cover different styles of jazz ranging from blues, swing, bebop, bossa nova to modern jazz. Working with Heidi Krenn and a professional pianist, you will learn basic musicianship skills and how to improve your stage presence.


The culmination of the course will be a final concert. Performing before an audience, with a professional jazz pianist, you will put your learned skills into practice.
