Contemporary Vocal Literature

Course Description

Learn how to present contemporary classics from a jazz point of view. Re-imagine songs like “Fields of Gold,” “Superstition,” “Killing Me Softly,” “How Sweet It Is,” “Will I Lie to You,” and “A House Is Not A Home.” This is a great class for vocalists interested in filling out their repertoire with more current material while still keeping it “jazz.” Students must be able to write their own charts.

Suggested Prerequisite: Five Great American Songbook literature classes and Chart Writing
