SESSION THREE & FOUR SUMMARY

By now, you should have mastered your instrument and understand the song charts along with how to sing a song with the appropriate feel and style.  During your second year, we will go in more depth with chart writing and arranging of your songs.  For Jazz or Pop singers, the objectives are the same.  Only the material changes.

Jazz Voice students will be scatting much more and swinging.
Pop Voice students will be solid in their interpretation, groove and melisma runs.

Singers all have the same objectives as far as performing and being yourself in the interpretation of song.
