The Singer and The Song

maye cavallaro


All the best jazz singers are master musicians and storytellers. This class will focus on developing our skills as singers, artists and song interpreters. Topics include choosing the right song; using various grooves, tempos and arrangements; learning and memorizing the melody and lyrics; phrasing; improvisation skills; communicating with an accompanist; and stage presence. In this supportive and challenging environment, students work on these skills and create arrangements for songs, culminating in an end-of-quarter performance. Weeks 2 and 3 include a professional accompanist, while the last two classes and performance include a full trio. For intermediate to advanced singers. Prerequisites: consent of instructor — telephone consultation required, 510.845.5373.

Sundays Noon – 3 pm
