Vocal Technique 4

Learn to interpret, shape, and enhance melodies using genre-specific and harmonically appropriate improvisations and stylizations characteristic in various musical idioms.

In Vocal Technique 4, you will develop the ability to identify and utilize specific musical time-feels or “grooves” and their corresponding rhythmic patterns. You will learn to interpret, shape, and enhance melodies using genre-specific and harmonically appropriate improvisations and stylizations characteristic in various musical idioms. Skills and topics covered in this class will allow vocalists to project a rhythmic pulse consistent with stylistically appropriate considerations. You will learn to create arrangements and realistic practice and accompaniment recordings in a multitude of styles and keys using the Band-in-a-Box software, and will use the free Musescore to transcribe lead sheets. Through activity and analytical discussion, you will identify chord-scale relationships, building the melodic vocabulary required to improvise intelligently over sophisticated chord progressions.
