Spring is Here!

Here’s a sampling of what the JCMS vocal program is
offering this term.

Performance courses for newer singers include Beginning
Jazz Singing and For the Love of Singing. Introductory and
more advanced vocal technique courses are also available.
The Vocal Jazz Ensemble is a great option for those that
enjoy working in a group setting with other singers. Salsa
fans should consider our Salsa Singing course, an amazing
opportunity to work with a full salsa band, and blues fans should check out Pamela Rose’s high energy performance courses. My own Contemporary Jazz Singer courses are running on Wednesday nights, accompanied by a band of some of the best musicians in the Bay Area. We’re also offering a range of courses focusing on R&B, pop, vocal improvisation and more.

Maye Cavallaro has been leading a workshop series for some years now and this spring will focus on the music of Duke Ellington. Students receive charts, playback tracks and a history and background of the repertoire. Our one-day workshops will feature Brooklyn resident Fay Victor and Stephanie Nakasian in from Charlottesville, Virginia, in addition to the Bay Area’s own Ellen Johnson and Joyce Pricco.

Please contact me at laurie@cjc.edu if you’d like to consult about course and workshop options. See you singing soon!!

Hope to see you soon!

The Word

“The Jazzschool provides a wonderful community for musicians. It legitimizes one’s efforts, so even if one is a beginner, it says yes to one’s attempts and ambitions. It is the greatest.”

— Angharad Jones, Jazzschool Student
