Singing For The Aging Voice
This class will explore different topics related to singing as we get older, including hormonal, physical, and emotional changes in the body and how to creatively approach these natural fluctuations. Students will sing jazz standards and jazz-style songs, followed by vocal exercises designed specifically for age-related voice topics. A suggested companion text for this class is Singing Through Change: Women’s Voices in Midlife, Menopause, and Beyond by Boz, Bozeman, Frazier-Neely. Both men and women are encouraged to participate. Students will need to bring jazz tracks or accompaniment audio for their songs.
