Class Descriptions

More Than Just Notes & Words                 Steve Tramack

Music is the language of emotion. It has the power to move, to heal, to inspire - both for the listener and performer. One of the keys enabling a performer to unlock the power of music is knowledge of and sensitivity to what the composer and lyricist were trying to say. In this session, we'll take a closer look and listen to the various elements of melody (e.g. contour, movement, range, patterns), and how to interpret melody in conveying emotion. We'll look beyond the text into the subtext of lyrics, and aspects of storytelling in delivering your vision for the song.

Getting Your Chorus Back on Track          Anne Bureau

Workshop on ways to get back into the swing of things, preparing your members, preparing your patrons.

Everyone* Can Hear Overtones                 Doug Smeltz

An exploration of why we all hear overtones!

Performology - The Posture of Performance       Doc Spilker

A lesson in posture for optimum voice and movement for communication.

The Basics of a Budding Director, Arm-Waver, or Front Line Music Maker             Angie Dolber
Have you ever thought about what a Director does, had any interest in becoming an Assistant Director, or are one of those people who would love to teach tags and do warm ups in front of the chorus? This class will talk about the basics of directing patterns, finding your style of directing, some basic music theory to know, and talk about the importance of mirroring posture, plus some ways to ensure a fun rehearsal is had by all.

Ring Those Chords          Ig Jakovac

Learn about how the voice is produced and about some of the factors that affect harmonics in vocal production.

Restoring and Keeping a Healthy Voice                 Renee Tramack

Have you noticed your voice isn’t the same after the Covid lockdown? Maybe you can’t sing as high or as low. Maybe you run out of air or get tired more quickly. Or maybe your vocal break is more pronounced. In this class we will review good vocal habits as well as some exercises that are easy on your vocal folds as you get back into singing with a healthy voice.
