Join JUNO-nominated Jazz vocalist Heather Bambrick as she takes you through the ins-and-outs of what it takes to effectively sing in the Jazz style!
Heather will walk participants through the various elements of singing Jazz, from choosing the right repertoire and the correct keys, to style, technique, phrasing, tone placement, and more!
Heather will discuss the various elements that go into singing numerous styles within the larger Jazz umbrella, including classic Swing, Latin, Blues, Cabaret, and more! There’ll even be some improvisation!
Participants can also examine song forms, learn some “stock” intros and endings, and determine the best way to communicate their ideas with accompanying musicians!
It’s a lesson in many parts of the Jazz language!
Vocalists can participate with their own tunes, working with Heather to further develop their style, sound, and repertoire.Learn how to sing Jazz a little more like Ella and Frank and a little less like Beyoncé and Bieber!
