Led by Shelly Bukspan, this course will give students a basic understanding of how the voice is produced and works through song. Similar to a fingerprint, each voice is unique. The day will be divided into three components with the morning focusing on cultivating a practice routine through warm up and cool down exercises and introducing ensemble singing for vocal blending, timing, and listening skills.
The afternoon session will focus on solo work, where the student can workshop areas they wish to receive feedback on through individual performances. Students are asked to prepare one song and have a backing track on their phone or other device, and bring a print out of the lyrics with them.
