Scat Singing Fundamentals I is a 90-minute primer for new jazz/scat singers. In this first session (there are two scat singing sessions on May 20th), we will cover the basics – what is scat singing?, how to pick syllables, how to pick notes and how to put it all together so you can start to scat sing during songs. The key to scat singing effortlessly is to access and share your personal language and perspective. We begin with straightforward, step-by-step exercises that get you scat singing in ways that are easy for you.

Scat Singing Fundamentals I is a perfect fit for new scat singers or as a review for folks looking to brush up the skills they learned in previous workshops.

Who can attend?

This workshop is open to singers of all levels, from beginners to professionals, who want to learn how to scat sing and improvise in songs and other standard forms. Previous experience scat singing is NOT necessary.

Scat Singing Fundamentals I is suitable for adults and teens who like to sing, who are comfortable singing in a group setting and who have basic rhythm and pitch skills.
Each singer receives personal attention and feedback.

Package and student pricing are available. Visit www.sarahmgreer.com/workshops to learn more.
