Soul Ingredients®: Jazz

Based on extensive research, Soul Ingredients® is a teaching methodology I created for developing a singer/performer's musical style.  This methodology shows students how to take their musical influences and models and execute the different components in a manner that is personal to the singer/performer’s own personal expression. 

Soul Ingredients®: Jazz specifically delves into the style of jazz.  From both a pedagogic (or teaching) and singers' perspective, it examines questions like:
  • What are the voice training goals for a Jazz Singer?
  • Can I use the standard Classical-based vocal technique to sing Jazz?
  • What makes jazz similar to other styles of African-American Music?
  • What makes jazz different from other styles of African-American Music?
  • What are the components of expression used in Jazz?
  • What are some of the sub genres of Jazz?
