Scat Singing Fundamentals II offers more scat singing tips and techniques. In this session, we add vocalist and instructor Jen Parker, working with song forms, practice counting (including trading bars) and lyric improvisation. In addition, Jen and Sarah will coach up to three (3) participants during the workshop on a song of their choice.

This workshop allows you to practice and improve your scat singing with the aid of experienced coaches and other supportive singers.

It promises to be day full of fun, success and scat singing! Best of all, we’re offering a nice discount for folks who take both workshops (visit sarahmgreer.com/workshops for info).

Who can attend?

This workshop is for adult and teen singers who want to practice scat singing and improvising in songs and other standard forms. It is suitable for singers who have attended Scat Singing Fundamentals I or who have other jazz or scat singing experience and are comfortable singing in a group setting. Each singer receives personal attention and feedback.

Enrollment is limited to 10 singers. There are 3 personal coaching spots.
