Voice at Cornish is designed specifically for young singers interested in learning about jazz, pop, R&B, and other contemporary vocal styles. The workshop provides students with an opportunity to develop as artists through daily collaboration with professional musicians in the industry and the nationally renowned vocal faculty at Cornish College of the Arts. The week encompasses the full spectrum of the singer's art: vocal technique, interpretation, improvisation, performance techniques, ensemble rehearsal with a band, and special topics. Singers will leave the week with a clearer understanding of what is required to be a vocalist in today's world.

Voice at Cornish allows singers to:

  • Experience singing for other students in a masterclass setting.
  • Learn to work with a professional rhythm section; including how to count off tempos of songs, communicate with a band, and prepare lead sheets.
  • Learn beginning improvisation skills in the jazz/blues/pop idiom, including melodic and rhythmic rephrasing, embellishments, tone color, and hearing basic blues, pentatonic, and other chord-based patterns.
  • Develop confidence performing onstage and learn microphone technique. Experience how movement, acting techniques, and stage presence affect performance.
  • Gain a deeper understanding and command of vocal technique; including breath management, intonation, tone quality, and phrasing.
  • Learn and sing solo repertoire, as well as ensemble repertoire, and experience singing backup vocals for other singers.
  • Have time to practice and take private lessons if desired (for an additional fee).

Voice at Cornish is designed to work together with our Voice 101 intensive. If you are interested in Voice at Cornish, you may want to consider adding additional skills and registering for Voice 101 the following week as well.
