STANDARD: LOWER/UPPER INTERMEDIATE, ADVANCED

If you’ve ever yearned to sing with the sound of a Big Band behind you, then here’s your chance. Working under the guidance of Anton Browne and Jenny Howe, two of the finest Big Band singers around, you’ll explore and develop vocal techniques relevant to the genre, study the art of stagecraft and presentation, discover how to make a well-known song your own, and learn about microphone technique and singing in harmony. We’d like you to prepare two standard songs from the big band repertoire and to bring along chord charts. We’ll provide songs and duets too. A portable CD player and some kind of recording machine will also prove useful. We begin at 6.30pm on the first day and finish after breakfast on the final day. And of course you get free entry to the A Night of Jazz concert on Thursday 27 July, in which Anton and Jenny will perform.
