SEE 'UPCOMING EVENTS' ON MAIN MENU FOR NEWLY ANNOUNCED DATES! SKYLARK-Online Jazz Course Dates/times can be tweaked to fit the group Where: Zoom Fee: £200 Max: 6 singers Aimed at singers of an intermediate-advanced level. Explore ways in how to become free within your repertoire, how to make musical decision within the moment and begin to approach your repertoire with more imagination. The aim with this course is to provide a clear structure towards learning a song 'inside and out' in order to be able to 'sing what you hear' in the moment. You will receive audio and video files with guided practice routines, backing tracks, and worksheets to use for your own individual practice in between the sessions. Each session will begin with an in-depth vocal warm up and practice routine that focuses on body & breath, tone & placement, vocal agility & aural training. The course is spread out over five separate dates. DAY 1) LOOK AFTER THE MELODY-TONE/PITCH & TIME/FEEL Our main job as singers is to look after the melody. In this session we'll look at each voice individually to understand what we each need to address technically in order to execute the melody with accuracy. DAY 2) STORYTELLING & JAZZ PHRASING In this session we'll look at breaking away from the written melody and explore our own own interpretations of the lyrics and ways in which we'd like to approach the arrangement of the song. You will be provided with beautifully recorded backing tracks in different tempos and feels. DAY 3) IMPROVISATION We will be breaking down the harmonic structure of the song and learn how to sing the roots, arpeggios and the guide tones. We will also explore a variation of improvisational concepts. (Scat singing and improvising with the lyrics). DAY 4) PRACTICE GROUP/ACCOUNTABILITY We will go through all the course work together and explore how to best implement focused practice into your daily/weekly life. DAY 5) PERFORMANCE Each singer will perform their own unique take on Skylark. Backing tracks, (piano accompaniment by Matt Robinson) will be provided.
