Interpretation Techniques for Vocal Jazz Performance


In this class, students will have an opportunity to delve deep into the lyrical content of a song. Find out how the phrasing of a song enhances the story and how this, in turn, impacts your performance. Students will work on two or three songs and perform one or two at the end of the term in an end-of-quarter performance. Prerequisites: none! Open to all.

Wednesdays 6:30 – 8 pm
7/11 – 8/15 (6 weeks)
