Performer's Intensive Week
For whom: You are an experienced singer, have solid knowledge and experience in jazz singing. You have a repertoire, experience playing with a band, go on jam
You are an experienced singer, have solid knowledge and experience in jazz singing. You have a repertoire, experience playing with a band, go on jam sessions and have also had a gig or two.
In addition to working on four songs, this workshop is all about polishing your stage presence and performance.
What you’ll work on in this course:
Have I used all the stylistic devices I can for my songs?
What is my body language, my emotional expression? Do my posture and gestures match the song?
How do I get myself into the mood I need for that particular song right now?
How do I bring different moods into my voice, how can I convey my feeling?
What do I need to consider when putting together a line-up? What makes my program entertaining, when is it boring?
How do I design announcements/moderations?
How do I deal with stage fright?
What’s the framework:
6 days of classes, approx. 30 hrs. plus the sessions in the evening.
The course is taught in two groups of 4 participants each, using the masterclass principle.
During the band rehearsals in the afternoon max. 4 PT in one group.
4 x jam sessions in the evening.
On one day there is no work on songs in the morning. This is about the topics of program design, body language, stage fright. That afternoon, everyone will be off.
At the end of the week, we’ll have a final concert at a nice tavern where you’ll perform two or three of your songs with announcements.
What you need to prepare:
Choose four songs to work on. You should be able to do these pieces from a melody and lyric standpoint for sure. Because you have a lot of experience, we will go through the songs faster. Please send us the lead sheets by July 1st, 2023 at the latest.
After your registration you will receive your personal login data* by mail. This will take you to the members area where your course will be activated (after payment). Only those who participate in the course together with you will have access there.
On your course page, you’ll find everything that’s important before you get started. Even though you know for sure what you want to work on, you might still be interested in the hints and tips on the lead sheet and your song selection that you’ll find there as well.
*If you have already taken one of our courses in Berlin from March 2021 or bought the “10 golden rules for a successful session”, you have already received your login data at that time. They always remain valid. If you can’t find it anymore, you can also log in with your email address and click on “Forgot password”, then you will be sent a new one.
