This 4-week class is designed for vocalists who want to develop a deeper connection to their personal style. We’ll explore methods for enhancing and expressing individual style, such as creating unique arrangements and fine-tuning lyric interpretation and approaches to improvisation. In this master class setting, each singer will work individually and will be given specific assignments based on what the instructor hears. Students should bring in music that is “in-progress,” songs that present a particular challenge, or tunes that are sparking new ideas. The instructor may also suggest repertoire. A professional accompanist will play for the class. Prerequisites: some performance experience.
Wednesdays 8:15 – 9:45 pm
