Rosanna Vitro Workshop
October 24 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm
VOCAL JAZZ WORKSHOPS & MASTER CLASSES
Roseanna has worked with singers age 13 to 100, in the realms of jazz, opera, pop and the theater.
Her methods emphasize the holistic, finding who you are in the creative world of singers. That is, the disciplines surrounding confidence, good musicianship, singing and performance: breath management, story-telling, rhythm, improvisation (scatting with both syllables and lyrics), repertoire, group leadership, performance, making your recording and overall utilization of the whole self.
She enables vocalists to discover their potential.
She began teaching Vocal jazz in 1998, following 26 years of performance and recording. Her music can be found on a multitude of labels and channels, including Concord, Telarc, Skyline, Half Note and Chase Music.
After years of leadership – which includes her recent supervision of the Jazz for Teens program at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center – Vitro created a four-year, Masters Degree program for Jazz Vocalists at New Jersey City University.
She has served as Jazz Ambassador for the U.S. State Department twice – in conjunction with the Kennedy Center (2004), and Lincoln Center (2009). Her workshops have taken her to South America, The Balkans, Kazakhstan, New Zealand and South Korea.
On stage and in the classroom, Vitro inspires.
Roseanna’s programs are designed for high school or conservatory or professional singers. Each program is designed utilizing a vast library of the latest vocal and improvisation programs. Hand out packets are created to coincide with mp3’s in dropbox or flash drive or cd recordings.
