Introduction to Jazz Singing, Rhythm and Improvisation, Beginnings

  • 74 Avenue Denfert-Rochereau Paris, Île-de-France, 75014 France (map)

Do you dream of singing in a jazz club? Do you want to dare to improvise? Do you want to learn more about the mysteries of improvisation and interpretation. Do you want to understand how to communicate the tempo, form and style to other musicians? Then this introductory course is for you.

Our next group course begins January 20 for 10 meetings ending June 9. 

Jazz Singing Workshops is about the art and practice of jazz singing. There are courses for all levels, requiring only a commitment to grow. Singing brings joy and satisfaction, and group work helps those who have problems of confidence. Jazz Singing Workshops offers both group and individual courses.

- For those who are interested in exploring the styles and techniques of jazz singing through group work that includes rhythm, harmony and theory. 

- Improve your technique and build confidence, a confidence rooted in knowledge and understanding.

- Enlarge your repertoire.

- Understand how to decipher a jazz lead sheet

- Learn simple techniques for arranging a song

Of course I expect you to apply yourself and complete exercises and learn the songs assigned. Like that we are sure to advance. And progress is such a pleasure and a wonderful way to build confidence!
