Advanced Vocal Literature: Vocal Stylings of Sarah Vaughan


Study and practice communicating a lyric with songs recorded by Sarah Vaughan, a master of various style techniques. Exploring songs like “Summertime,” “It Might As Well Be Spring,” “Key Largo,” “Tenderly,” and “Come Rain or Come Shine,” you will learn how to manipulate tone and vowel formation for color, build your range, explore melodic improvisation, and work on straight tone/vibrato. At the end of the 6 weeks, you will perform with an instrumental trio.

Suggested Prerequisite: Five composer literature classes, Chart Writing and Vocal Improvisation
