I SYSA! Vocal Improvisation with Soul - Beginning Vocal Improvisation Class

with Debby Boland Watt


This class meets weekly on Wednesdays from 5:00 - 6:30pm

I Sing Your Soul Alive! (Beginners) Vocal Improvisation Class

SYSA! I ~ is designed for singers of every vocal level who are interested in exploring improvisation within the comfort of a creative and safe environment.  Learning to improvise can be a journey of self discovery. Together we will unite our voices as instruments, creating spontaneous a cappella music. Musical forms such as call & response, hocketing, harmony & spoken word will enhance our songs as we pay special attention to our use of rhythm. Attentive listening and collaborative exercises will free your voice!   

For over 18 years, I've studied with Rhiannon who continues to perform and teach alongside Bobby McFerrin. Rhiannon's book, Vocal River, will be referenced often as I teach this class.  The next intermediate level of SYSA! II ~ will host Bobby McFerrin's Circle Singing techniques.  Please join us!

Please bring: a water bottle and a recording device (your phone will do)
