For over 30 years, I have developed award-winning ensembles through attention to vocal technique and team building. Let's grow your vocal jazz program this year by creating strong singers and team players.
vocal jazz workshops
Below are my three most popular workshops that I offer to vocal jazz ensembles. If there is another way you would like to partner together, please reach out and let me know.
one hour package
This format is very similar to attending a jazz choir festival, the jazz choir performs and I provide feedback in the areas of style, presentation, communication, nuance, customizing a chart and chart specific needs.
two hour package
In addition to the jazz choir performing and offering feedback in the areas of style, presentation, communication, nuance, customizing a chart and specific chart needs, additional time is spent on ensemble growth. The creativity of the students and director is called upon to mold the chart to the ensemble. We delve into the nitty gritty details of the pieces being performed, and work to build a unique chart for the group.
half or full day package
The first hour of this package focuses on developing vocal jazz style and technique after the jazz choir performs their current repertoire. After addressing technique, the second hour builds upon ensemble growth and molding the charts to the choir with the creativity of the students and director. An introduction to scat singing is included, along with high level interactive team builders. A venture into the area of quartet or one on a part singing brings the group together and creates a stronger and more confident sound. This package can take three to six hours depending on the group's experience and availability.
