Why Classical singing lessons?
When you take classic singing lessons you have the advantage of getting a very broad base and be able to sing many different styles. You practice a powerful breathing technique with which we will put your body to work in order to remain audible and intelligible without a microphone until the back of the hall. You will also come into contact with all sorts of composers, who have proven themselves through the centuries from various countries and are dealing with different languages and poets. There is a world open to you which can mean a tremendous enrichment.
Examples of classical vocals:
- Powerfull breathing technique by Cecila Bartoli
- Au bord de l’eau-Fauré by Véronique Gens
- Amarilli Mia Bella Love song by Caccini by Cecilia Bartoli
- Widmung – Schumann
- Vivaldi-Salve Regina-Andreas Scholl
Jazz music originated after black people from African countries were kidnapped to America to work as a slave on the plantations. They were sold and were mainly found in New Orleans, and there developed a mixture of negrospirituals and African folk rhythms from which various jazz movements arose. The syncopated rhythms combined with improvisation is the basis of jazz. Here we limit ourselves to vocal jazz. Listen to Summertime with Ella Fitzgerald. In vocal jazz you will be dealing with ‘skat ‘; These are improvisations with meaningless words. A-Wapdoebiedoebie-Shoebiedoewie-bap-wap.
Examples of jazz:
- East of the Sun and west of the moon – Nicki Parrott plays on the contrabass and sings
- One Note Samba with Ella Fitzgerald.
