Do you love to sing? Are you craving an environment that is made just for you, your vocal interests and goals? New York Jazz Academy® Vocal Jazz Intensives offer a completely immersive experience for vocalists to delve into jazz training from 2-5 days at a time. Based in part on the long-running NYJA® Jazz Intensives model, the new NYJA® Vocal Jazz Intensives provide an engaging atmosphere entirely designed specifically for vocalists. Being a singer encompasses a different art form than being an instrumentalist and we at NYJA® celebrate that distinction.

NYJA® Vocal Jazz Intensives run intermittently throughout the year. Vocalists will learn about facets of vocal health and technique, jazz repertoire, jazz improvisation, the art of duo settings, and much more. Participants will leave the program with a significantly greater understanding of harmony, melody, and jazz styles.

When and where are the NYJA® Vocal Jazz Intensives?

Upcoming NYJA® Vocal Jazz Intensives have merged with the NYJA® Summer Jazz Intensives (click here for 2020 details and summer dates), giving vocalists a great opportunity to learn with vocal faculty, but also receive daily practice with instrumentalists and ensembles.
