About The Event

In this workshop, Greg will show why all instrumentalists can benefit from singing practice and how understanding your singing voice is crucial for developing a distinct sound as an improviser. The workshop will begin by Greg leading a variety of vocal warm-ups, followed by a study of several well-known compositions that will explore each individual's unique phrasing and articulation. From there, we will use our voices to improvise and to guide our instrumental improvisation; challenging ourselves to avoid our favorite licks and instead generate musical content from within. This is an interactive workshop and is open to instrumentalists of any level.

Tickets are $30 for advanced registration and $45 for the day of clinic. (https://cjc.edu/workshops/?eid=35572)
