The Singer and The Song: Focus on Johnny Mercer

maye cavallaro


Choosing material, developing arrangements, programming a set and writing and delivering interesting patter are all skills advanced singers need to master to grow their audience. In this class, we’ll focus on the music of Johnny Mercer and together we’ll put together an hour-long performance including songs and stories about the charming Mr. Mercer. Each student will choose two tunes from the Mercer catalog and we’ll concentrate on creating arrangements, communicating our ideas to other musicians and stage presence. Weeks two and three include a professional accompanist, while weeks four and five and the performance include a full trio. For intermediate to advanced singers. Prerequisites: consent of instructor-telephone consultation required. Call 510.845.5373 for more information.
