Jazz Vocals Class at the Bloom School of Jazz

New Class Begins April 22, 2017

Check Out What Our Students Think...

Learn to sing and scat with authority and direction. The Jazz Vocals course takes singers through a unique experience of deep imagination and expression.
A professional pianist accompanies the class throughout its duration, and a bassist and drummer are added for the last day. Through recording, playback, and assessment, by the students and the instructor, a new awareness and standard of performance is created. The course culminates with a final concert where each singer performs two pieces with a professional rhythm section at a Chicago music venue.


You will:

  • Rehearse and perform with a professional rhythm section (live band)
  • Improvise scat solos
  • Increase awareness and execution of dynamics, rhythmic variety, expression, and phrasing
  • Record and assess your singing
  • Greatly increase your dramatic expression
  • Meet musicians and vocalists
  • Perform two songs at an afternoon concert in a Chicago music venue
