Will involve a series of writing exercises, journaling, basic theory practice, and use of an instrument (can be your voice) to give life to the songs that are already inside of you.
We will start with a list of songs you enjoy and would like to play. You will learn to create tension free sound, to connect with your tone, and have fun exploring your voice. We will work on pitch, tone, breath control/projection and find a daily practice of singing that feels good for you.
Learn to shuffle, hop, toe, heel, step ball change! We will start with basic tap dance steps and vocabulary. These classes will explore keeping a groove with simple steps, learning classic tap routines and singing while tapping.
Each class will start with a gentle warm up, stretching, and strengthening. We will then fully connect with our bodies to move in ways that feel comfortable and healthy for each student, exploring shapes, and movement sequencing.
Scheduling will vary based on the time of year due to touring. There is an option to continue voice and songwriting lessons via Skype while I am on the road.
