Vocal Jazz Workshop (Online)
The NYJA® Online vocal workshop series is titled “NYJA® sings Ella, Billie, Sarah & Carmen.” This is a fun hands-on vocal workshop where vocalists get to grow their repertoire, scat, and perform weekly. With the tools to recognize specific vocal jazz devices, vocalists will be encouraged to come up with their own interpretation of American Standards. Whether you are a beginning soloist who wants to learn how to successfully sit in at a jam session or a seasoned singer preparing for a performance, NYJA® Vocal Jazz Workshops will help you with performance skills such as stage presence, song interpretation, lyric memorization, musicianship skills, and improvisation. Semesters typically include 7-8 sessions, and class sizes are designed to be small; typically 4-8 students.
