What is a Jazz Vocal Performance Class?
It’s a place to learn about singing, swinging and performing jazz standards … to have fun while becoming a better singer… to learn to explore your unique style in a safe, supportive environment…to work on self-expression, microphone technique, stage presence, interacting with the band, connecting with the audience, and singing for enjoyment. All levels are welcome. Live piano accompaniment is provided during class, and a jazz trio accompanies for the student recital.

A public performance at the end of the series showcases each student singing 4 songs with a jazz trio at Egan’s, an intimate club with a relaxed vibe, perfect for a student recital. 1707 NW Market St, Seattle, WA / www.ballardjamhouse.com

As an instructor my main goal is to inspire singers to HAVE FUN and feel safe enough to fully express themselves regardless of age, background or ability.

Our intelligence can get us wherever we want to go with our voices, because our bodies already know what to do. A group of three year olds singing their little hearts out is proof that all of us were born to sing. There are things to learn at every stage, but regular listening, practicing and expanding our breath awareness will bring momentum to our progress.

Registration is on a first come, first served basis.
Cost: $275

Fees include four class sessions plus the recital at Egan’s Jazz Club (venue info see www.ballardjamhouse.com) Class is limited to 5 students to ensure a quality experience. All levels welcome.
