Play with melody, rhythm, language, harmony, vocal production, and soul connection. Get the gritty, technical, sensual sense of how the voice can draw powerfully on vocal wisdom from many cultures.
Explore the rainbow of colors inherent in our voices and join with other daring singers to create vocal landscapes, soulful harmonies, and impromptu sonic masterpieces. In her improvisation Singing Workshops, Elise uses games and exercises from her studies with master teachers Rhiannon, Bobbie McFerrin, David Darling, Dr. Fred Onovwerosuoke, and Dr. Ysaye Barnwell, which expand with our own creativity. We also explore SONGS as inspiration for improvisation.
Vocal Improvisation provides a safe and supportive space to stretch out and widen vocal horizons, and to express our authentic selves.
Music reading is not a prerequisite,
but some knowledge of music theory can’t hurt.

At the next workshop, I would be more than happy to repeat any of the songs we sang with you! They were all excellent and worth revisiting. Although I would sing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star for an hour and a half if it meant I could sing with you!Julie E. ~ Workshop Participant, June 2022
