About the class

To which extent does classical vocal training allow us to explore our entire vocal potential and to use it adequately? Timna Brauer inspires the participants with precise but simple exercises to discover hidden ways of expression of their voice. Endless musical worlds open up when rhythm, phrasing, diction, timbre and joy of improvisation create an inspiring interplay.

Emphasis:

  • physical training as foundation for voice and breathing technique

  • repertoire and style: jazz standards, chansons and musicals as basis for swing, phrasing and improvisation

  • "Off-beat", solo and ensemble singing, a capella and with professional coaching and piano accompaniment by the internationally renowned Jazz pianist Elias Meiri.
