This course is for those who have taken my introductory course or who have already some experience. As places are limited it is advisable that you contact me. I am limiting the group to 8 maximum.

Our next group course begins January 27 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 deepening their understanding of 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

- Technical exercises will be used to strengthen both your sense of harmony and rhythm. You will be encouraged to practice at home. Practice makes perfect they say. 

-There will be several group songs that will challenge you to hear and to stabilise yourself in group situations, whether it be with instrumentalists or other singers.

As this is my advanced group we will be looking for possibility of 1 or 2 concerts as well as the student concert.

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

There will be a student concert the 3rd week in June and a separate rehearsal for preparation
