This workshop is about understanding the roles of the players in the rhythm section and how you, as a singer, interact with each of them. Working with the Rhythm Section, we can discuss and practice:

  • Listening to “non-melodic” instruments
  • Feeling groove and showing time
  • Roles of rhythmic players
  • Singer-player relationships
  • Giving cues
  • Solo and scat singing*
  • Microphone technique
  • Understanding song form and keys
  • Learn what players need from singers (Q&A)

*This workshop is an excellent place to practice implementing the skills we learn in the Scat Singing Fundamentals I and II workshops. Working with the Rhythm Section is open to singers of all levels; previous experience singing with a rhythm section is NOT necessary.

This workshop is part of a series. Package and student pricing are available. Visit http://www.sarahmgreer.com/workshops to learn more.
