Have you been thinking you could use some tips or refreshers on proper singing techniques? Want to learn about the care and feeding of your vocal cords (and the rest of your instrument)? Or what do when you feel a cold coming on? How about a brush-up on your sight-singing skills?
The WVC’s Choral Boot Camp is bringing together several of New York’s finest professional singers and musicians to offer workshops for our friends in the NYC (and beyond!) as the new choir season gets into gear.
What will we be learning? We’ve partnered with three different teachers, and have scheduled three “class periods” for you to work with each of them.
Here’s a sneak peek at our teachers and their topics:
Tim Krol, one of the city’s most sought-after singers and voice teachers, will offer a class called Singing Pure Vowels and Making a Three-Point-Landing With Each Breath. In this class, Tim will show how to efficiently—and consistently—form each of the basic vowels while singing, and then demonstrate how vowels are the key ingredient to any song, no matter the style.
Award-winning cabaret singer and vocal coach Stearns Matthews will instruct Boot Camp-ers on The Anatomy of Breathing.
Internationally acclaimed baritone Lawrence Craig will lead a session on Vocal Agility and Flexibility and Vocal Hygiene so we can learn to keep our pipes in tip-top shape for a lifetime of singing.
