In this class we will take a popular song, and explore different ways to make it your own, talking about your own unique things that you wish to add to a song, and taking in consideration vocal limitations as: range of your voice, as well as other aspects that you may bring during the class.
The class is open to any song you bring if you attend in real time.
And it can be adopted to all singing levels, starting from beginners to advanced to pro's.
Hope to see you there.
In this class, learn the foundations of beginning praise dance. Rather you are a beginner, have experienced or never moved before this class is designed to give you confidence through movement. Start connecting with God and learn a few eight counts along the way.
In this singing class we will work on style of singing\ performing, it is where YOU the participants are asking me what would you like to work on, and to receive from this workshop.
I can lead this workshop anywhere you choose, and give you tools and tips to make any song in any style more interesting, fluent, smooth or "Rocky" to make it your own, to add your own flavor and personal color to it, and to polish it to the next level of performance ability.
I will do my best to make you all participate, and feel that you can extract some benefit of the material. You are mostly welcome to try every thing I show to the degree that your voice feel comfortable with, with out causing any harm to it.
I will explain about this more specifically in the begining of the class.
hope to see you there !!
