As Ella Fitzgerald would say “The only thing better than singing is more singing”. During this five-day intensive, dive into the world of contemporary music in your style of choice. This program is open to vocalists, singer-songwriters and instrumentalists alike. Beyond the Beat’s Vocal Summit will employ both group and individual instruction as well as feature well-known and respected musicians. In addition, recording session opportunities will be provided and executed in a professional environment. Throughout the week the curriculum will cover many different aspects of vocal education such as:
- vocal technique
- the influence of gospel in music
- audition tips
- R&B improvisation
- recording and mixing vocals
- background singing
WHAT TO BRING
Every student should choose one style they would like to focus on, either pop/rock, pop/R&B, country, jazz, musical theatre or a capella. Your style choice will be taken into consideration for all solo coachings and workshop placements. Prepare (2) songs to perform confidently and preferably by memory. Please provide at least two copies of the sheet music for each song.
WHAT YOU TAKE AWAY
Private Coachings: One-on-one guidance with a qualified vocal instructor, vocal coach and/or guest artist.
Ensemble Rehearsals: The group will form a vocal ensemble that will rehearse daily and perform one or more musical selections at the final concert.
Individual and group recording sessions : Participants will take advantage of our state of the art equipment by performing in at least one individual recording session and or/ensemble session.
