I’m happy to announce the next Vocal Improv. Workshop…
Friday, November 1st 7:00-8:30 pm
at Tribeca Music Studio
340A Greenwich St. NYC 10013
(will send detailed directions, if you need them)
Come and release your inner singer & unleash your creativity!!!
Powerful “body, breath, voice warm-up” which encourages relaxation and brings awareness of your voice as the instrument that it is.
Vocal exercises specifically designed to open the voice as a spontaneous improvisational instrument.
Experimenting with vocabulary, rhythm, textures, sounds, vocal percussion and look for places we’ve never gone before
Exploring traditional as well as extended vocal techniques (big fun!!)
Searching for your own personal language
Exercises & ensemble pieces that explore different facets of free improvisation as well as improvising over chord changes & rhythms.
Logical left-brain thinking will be discouraged in favor of a more expansive, intuitive right-brain approach.
For Whom is This Workshop Appropriate?
This workshop is appropriate for singers who feel “boxed in” and want to expand upon their musical vocabulary or open their voices in order to use them more expressively. It is also appropriate non-singers and instrumentalists or inexperienced singers who would like to get more comfortable using their voices. Great for dancers, actors and anyone in the performing arts and last but not least, folks who sit in front of computers all day and need to switch gears.
No experience necessary, just an adventurous spirit!
These workshops are always rockin’ and a lot of fun!! The atmosphere is encouraging and nurturing.
Here’s what one of my students said about it:
We played with Jazzy Rhythms and Beats and took turns using our voices as instruments to create a wonderful acappella Ensemble. By the end of the day, Dori was able to bring out the strengths in each of our voices and had us feeling comfortable enough to perform individually in front of each other and then collectively as a group. I highly recommend this workshop for singers of any level. You may go in already sounding good but you’ll come out with a new vocabulary of all the dynamic things you never imagined your voice could do. – Jeannie F.
