Jazz Singer Class- Thursday evenings from 7-8:30pm Feb. 6 through Mar. 13. We will study the great jazz singers: Sarah Vaughn, Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Nat King Cole, June Christy, Carmen McCrae, Chet Baker, to mention a few. We will learn about jazz harmonic structure, do jazz vocalizes, sing jazz chords, songs, progressions, blues, and perhaps do some improvisation. Students will pick a song and emulate the style of one of the greats for a final class performance. To get the most out of the class, students should be able to match pitches and learn a song from a recording.
