'Get inside a song'
Approach music like a jazz singer
July 15th-20th, ZOOM, Early Bird Deadline 28/6

​​Would you like to spend a week this summer improving your voice and finding your creative direction within the jazz repertoire together with a like-minded group of singers zooming in from across the world?

The online course is a spin-off of our yearly Jazz Summer Cousre in Izola, Slovenia. 

 

The main aim of the course is to provide a fun and creative week together with like-minded singers. We'll pour some love and care into our voices whilst exploring a PLAYFUL approach to interpreting standard and contemporary jazz repertoire.

 

The classes aim to deepen your understanding of jazz repertoire and the jazz approach and help you structure a practice routine that optimizes PLAY and CREATIVITY in your delivery of any songs.

 

The week will consist of some of my favorite classes and workshops from the past 10 years of the course, which focus on jazz phrasing, storytelling, vocal improvisation, artistic identity & creative direction, and vocal technique. We will spend time listening to and analyzing some of our favorite singers as well as practicing and workshopping musical concepts together over pre-recorded backing tracks.

 

As part of the course, you will have a total of TWO 1:1 singing lessons with me. (You will have one lesson during the week and one follow-up lesson later in the summer/early autumn).

 

All classes & workshops will be recorded and you will have access to these for ONE YEAR including access to The Beyond Vocals Exercise Library, which contains jazz exercises and vocal exercises, all for the purpose of helping you stay on track with your practice.

 

I want you all to walk away with a clearer view of your creative direction and to have a better understanding of HOW to practice WHEN to practice, and WHAT to practice.
