Ever wonder how jazz musicians do it? Mesmerizing us all with their seemingly effortless melodic dances that drive the crowds wild? What if YOU could show off some sweet vocal moves that would make Ella swoon? You can! Based on the vocal style and teaching of singing greats such as Rhiannon and Bobby McFerrin, this workshop will guide you through the foundational steps to becoming a vocal improviser. Throw your inhibitions to the wind and sing like there's no tomorrow! Gather your gumption and release all expectations in this vocal improv workshop with Audrey Voon. This workshop is for you if you are new to vocal improv AND if you attended our workshop in December. We'll review the concepts from that workshop while adding modifications for those who are ready to step up their vocal improv game. Ready to uplevel your singing game? Sign up today!
Facilitator: Audrey Voon
A lifelong singer and a lover of adventure and learning, Audrey is at her best when she is empowering others. Through her teaching, community cultivation, and ongoing performance projects, Audrey seeks to breathe love into the world, one song at a time. Audrey believes that singing is innate in all of us: “If you can walk, you can dance. If you can talk, you can sing” (Zimbabwean Proverb). And, if you believe you can, then you will. Audrey has a Master of Arts in Teaching and a Bachelor of Arts in Music, as well as her Orff-Schulwerk Level 1 certification. She has performed with local theatre companies, including Elsinore Theatre, Broadway Rose, and Portland Opera. She currently offers remote 1:1 voice lessons and coaching for singers, teachers, and other public speakers. In January she is launching a brand new transformative program for women called Full Voice, which empowers women to stand up fully in their voice every day. Audrey also leads bi-weekly guided music meditations on Zoom. She is a student of Ayurveda, yoga, mindfulness, and meditation, and her practices inform her teaching.
