Workshops, Clinics and Rehearsals

Performance Workshop Series
(How to work with a LIVE band!) Our most popular workshop!

How do I learn the same “language” as the musicians. What order are the solos? How do I count-off the entire band? Where do I look? Who’s in charge? How can I truly make music with a whole Quartet? Singing with a jazz band can be thrilling, but it’s daunting too. If these questions resonate with you, come to our rythmn section workshop and get ready to move to the next level.

This workshop is a rare opportunity for singers to work with one of the top rhythm sections in the Northwest jazz scene. Each series includes two 45 min sessions with piano (or guitar), bass, drums and sax and myself as your personal coach. The students will work up 4 songs for the performance. We work on communication with the instrumentalists, song form, solos, arrangements, mic technique and stage presence.  Each 2 week session ends with a performance at local Jazz club/venue. You are encouraged to invite your friends and family to see YOU!
