AUDITORS ONLY AS OF 4/28.

Does your vocal technique get in the way of your communicating a song? Or is it more likely that your attempt to communicate a song gets in the way of your technique? Master voice teacher and vocal coach David Edelfelt will help you assess and then balance your strengths and weaknesses of both the technical aspects of singing and the skills needed for implementing compelling and effective choices in dramatic or comedic song communication to allow for a balancing of your best work in both areas.

Communicating with your audience. While other workshops will explore text and subtext of our lyrics, let’s take a look at what happens in between the songs. What setup or context connects the song to your audience? Whether the song serves as soundtrack to the world we live in or is a time-travel vehicle to another time, its “patter” helps point the way.

Thoughtful expression through the body—lessons from burlesque. Making music is at the heart; making sense of it is at the limbs. Actions of the body are as crucial as learning the notes and rhythm. Finding the “comfort zone” of your body language on stage during a performance will make or break the delivery of the song. We’ll dive into the theory that translates basic movements as choreography—everything from a simple smirk or gesture to using the landscape of the stage to your advantage. Tailored to your abilities and needs, each participant will have the opportunity to work one or two of their selections. Mild to wild—you get from the audience what you give them. We give you tools to pop off the page and onto the stage. Todd Michael Kiech (Hot Toddy), from Chicago, is the 2009 Burlesque Hall of Fame’s ‘King of Burlesque’.

We continue exploring what it feels likes to “sing with one’s bones”; and for those who prefer, we will apply this to singing in French. Poetry—the music of words and the depth of texts beyond the music itself— is one of the specificities of French song. Making vowels and consonants resound, using diction, resonators, sound colors and textures to release and share the emotion contained in a poetic text. “It’s because I’m resonating that the Other resonates with me.” Refining our ear to listen to the bones and their harmonics.

A few things to know when you are transitioning from opera to cabaret! You already have a voice or talent, a need to perform, a willingness to take risks, and imagination. But now your audience is smaller and closer to you. You’re at greater liberty to sing what you like and not sound “operatic”. You’ll learn to adjust the rhythm, the key that suits your voice, the pronunciation of text, the use of microphone and possibly belting. You are responsible for your own musicians, your production, and promotion.
