Jazzschool Vocal Chair Message


In summer we often choose to do something different with our time — take a vacation, revisit a book or hobby, learn something new or commit to practicing and preparing songs for a performance!

I’m thrilled with the teachers and classes we have to offer this summer.

Returning vocal performance teachers include Stephanie Crawford, Frankye Kelly, and Amanda Addleman, plus newcomer Kalil Wilson! Clif Payne has designed two very special performance classes — the music of Burt Bacharach and another course on the music of the Harlem Renaissance. Cecilia Englehart will teach a jazz performance class in addition to a Bossa Nova class, and Lilan Kane will lead an R&B class. Lilan and Kalil will also offer vocal technique classes. Melanie O’Reilly will lead an Irish singing class, Edgardo Cambón will continue his salsa singing course, Daria will teach a class for bass and voice, and Maye Cavallaro will present her “Unsung Gems” 3-part workshop series.

In addition to our classes, there are concerts every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday as well as workshops throughout the summer.

Feel free to email me at laurie@cjc.edu for more info or consultations.
