Contemporary Vocal Literature – Part 1

,

Learn how to present contemporary classics from a jazz point of view. Re-imagine songs like “Killing Me Softly,” “How Sweet It Is,” 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. At the end of the 12 weeks, you will perform with an instrumental trio.

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