Topics covered include: crafting rhythmic ideas, melodic singing, constructing musical form, incorporating dynamics, utilizing vocal ranges, understanding harmonic progressions, deep listening, and ensemble play. Whether you are an improvisor, musician, artist or simply craving tools to take your shower singing to a whole new level this class has something for everyone.
