JAZZ & CONTEMPORARY
In the jazz/contemporary voice studio, the main focus is on the fundamentals of vocal technique with an emphasis on jazz and contemporary musical styles and repertoire, including jazz standards, top 40 pop, and musical theater. We also cover topics such as vocal improvisation and arranging within each piece, allowing the student to explore many different timbres and colors of the voice and develop a unique interpretation of each song. Students generally choose their pieces and may sing from a lead sheet.
*Two years of classical voice lessons recommended as a foundation
