Workshops, Clinics and Rehearsals

Rhythm Section 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 trio? Singing with a trio 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 3, half-hour sessions with piano, bass and drums and myself. 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. Students are encouraged to stay as long as they like and watch the other participants. Each 3 week session ends with a performance at local Jazz club/venue where singers have the option of recording themselves or showcasing for gigs…and of course inviting their friends and family to see them!!

Other rhythm section workshops

Double workshops

I’m also offering a “double” workshop! This allows you to perform 8 songs at Tula’s. You’d have 3, 1-hour rehearsals with the band and myself. You can ask to make any month a “DOUBLE”. The cost is$560 and subject to space availability.

Instrumental students

Although the workshops were started primarily as a forum for vocal students, we have recently had pianists, saxophonists, guitarists and a violinist take the workshop as well.

The band will offer to share the wisdom they have to budding instrumentalists who join us and wish to work on their comping, soloing and improvisation skills. They may also wish to augment their time in the workshop with some private lessons with the bandmember of their choice.
