Jazz vocal is a complex kind of art, as it combines techniques of many other vocal styles and gives the performer a greater freedom for experimenting, interpretation, discoveries and artistic expression.
At Solomriya school, experienced and qualified instructors give private jazz vocal lessons for kids and for adults in an exciting and understandable manner.
Learning jazz vocal starts with basics of the voice control: relaxation of vocal apparatus, using vocal resonators (chest voice, head voice, and mixed voice), breathing techniques, and work with a diaphragm.
Then, we’ll learn more about the main element of jazz singing – rhythm. We’ll get acquainted with “swing” and various rhythmical patterns.
Next parts of our course will be dedicated to learning jazz vocal techniques, runs, and phrasing.
We’ll teach you scat singing using the teaching methods of Bob Stoloff and the best examples of scat vocal by Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Dianne Reeves, Dee Dee Bridgewater, and others.
At our jazz vocal lessons, we’ll also learn more about the main jazz styles: swing, blues, gospel, ballad, Latin jazz, Bossa nova, bebop, hard bop, jazz waltz, funk, cool jazz, and smooth jazz. We won’t forget about more recent styles like R’n’B, soul, neo-soul, acid jazz, post-bop, jazz manouche, fusion, modal jazz, jazz-mugham, jazz rap, and many others.
Our tutors will tell you about the structure of a musical piece, basic jazz chords, and forms of compositions.
Of course, we’ll pay great attention to learning improvisation: scat singing practice, exercising improvisation in the main jazz styles, and learning models.
The course’s program also includes acting skills ( microphone techniques, stage performance) and practice in the studio (recording of the song in professional recording studios, improving your skills of providing backing vocal).
