Choral improvisation workshop 4.30-6pm and Circle songs 6-7pm

 

These workshops are a wonderful opportunity to explore your voice and creativity working within a group where the collective involvement and cohesion between singers helps to release your inner creativity and free your voice.  It is a great opportunity to get to know your instrument better and to develop and free up your musical intuition. 

 

Part a) with Matt Burdinowski Choral improvisation will help develop awareness of the relationship between the individual voice and the choral texture in terms of blend, dynamics and expression all within a cohesive group. We will build listening skills, rhythmic co-ordination, and body awareness as a singer as well as building trust and confidence within the group to provide a space for vocal exploration and creativity to improvise as a soloist and as an accompanist.

 

Part b) with Zofia Prucnal, Circle songs will help you to sing freely without constraints of style or form, without inhibition, interacting with those singers around you embracing all sounds, rhythms and ideas so that each singer finds their creative space within the circle of singers.

Sightsinging and how to teach it

This class is for all singers and singing teachers who need help with how to teach sight-singing.

 

Being asked to sight-sing can strike fear into the heart of even the most experienced vocalist. Though it has traditionally been part of the singer's education, very few graduate with the ability to do it well.

Gerald White is an experienced session singer with a long list of professional credits, including "Glee," "Avatar," and the Oscars. The goal of his popular sight-singing class, L.A. Sight Singer, is to remove the mystery from the process of sight-singing and make this rare skill available to singers of all levels

Rhythm is often the most difficult part of sight-singing, Gerald starts from the beginning with rhythm, teaching whole notes, half notes, and then just a lot of drilling.  Intervals are handled by a number system over scales combined with vocal muscle memory. 

 

If you struggle with sight-singing or teaching sight-singing do not miss this class!!  Its truly amazing!!
