Jazz singing workshop: Learn vocal jazz (taught in english) in a wonderful farmhouse in the heart of Umbria, Italy

This workshop is open to anyone who wants to learn how to sing jazz or how to improve their jazz singing. This course is suitable for those who can already sing with some confidence but with no previous jazz experience.

You will:

be introduced to the subject with a brief history of jazz;
listen analytically to some examples of various singers of the genre and have help identifying the various techniques they're using;
learn vocal techniques used in jazz singing;
introduction to the voice and how it's produced;
vocal exercises;
demonstrations of singing and performing jazz.
Focusing on vocal technique, basic theory, ear training, vocal effects, improvisational ideas, singing through chord progressions, communicating with the band, finding the right keys to songs and arranging ideas to perform songs.

Students will have an opportunity to practice singing with an accompanist for part of the course, learn vocal interpretation and improvisation (scat), develop performance and microphone skills, and learn how to lead the accompaniment– all while activating the creative process. Through structured exercises, students apply what they have learned - culminating in a dinner-concert.
