09-08-2018 12:00:00 12-08-2018 12:00:00 America/New_York Vocal Intensive Intermediate/Advanced- Summer Jazz Workshop | 11:00 AM Designed for singers of intermediate level (with some previous performance experience and/or vocal and musical studies), participants learn the fundamentals of healthy, functional vocal technique and their specific applications when singing jazz and other contemporary and improvisational styles of music. Based on the principles of Jeannette LoVetri's Somatic Voicework™, Jocelyn's methods of vocal pedagogy address technical aspects of singing from an integrated, body-based perspective, seeking to establish freedom of movement, sensation and awareness in the throat and body in order to more openly communicate musical ideas and emotions. Topics covered include breathing, posture, registration (chest, head, mix), and tone, focusing on the development of each singer's individual sound as specifically relevant to genres of jazz and improvised music. The workshop will address aspects of musicianship as applicable to basic jazz repertoire (standards, blues, Broadway show tunes, and contemporary cross-over genres such as R&B and pop), improvisation (through both lyrics and scat syllables), phrasing and interpretation. The workshop would explore basic harmonic progressions and help singers learn their way through jazz and blues chord changes through patterns and ear training, in addition to analysis of song forms, chart reading, sight-singing, arranging, and working with an accompanist and/or band of any style. Along with these fundamental musicianship skills, aspects of Brazilian vocal styling and Portuguese language pronunciation would be addressed (in conjunction with Richard Boukas' work), in addition to microphone and stage performance skills. Each day of the workshop will begin with basic contemporary vocal technique work, adapting to the needs and level of each participant. Listening selection might include examples by Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Betty Carter, Billie Holiday, Bobby McFerrin, etc. Repertoire might include works by standard composers such as George Gershwin, Duke Ellington, Cole Porter, Rogers & Hammerstein, Jerome Kern and Johnny Mercer, as well as works by Brazilian masters such as Antonio Carlos Jobim, Caetano Veloso, Milton Nascimiento, and selections in other contemporary genres. Singers are encouraged to bring in their own song choices, as well, to be explored within the workshop setting and performed at the conclusion. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=298096 New York Jazz Workshop New York Jazz Workshop
