Jazz Power Fall Youth Training Workshop auditions
Jazz Power Initiative’s Fall Youth Training Workshop is an award winning, transformational, 8-week multidisciplinary program in singing, acting, piano musicianship and movement. Our voice pedagogy cultivates awareness of voice function for healthy, expressive and free singing in African American singing traditions from the foundation of many styles of American singing; including jazz, blues, gospel, R&B, rock, pop, and country. Our theater pedagogy uses holistic body, mind and spirit methodology and a variety of socially conscious literature to train youth in diction, articulation, moment to moment acting and breath work. Piano keyboard musicianship provides basic orientation to the keyboard, location of pitches, intervals, triads, 7th chords and an introduction to reading notation. The fall program looks to enrich the student’s learning experience with one-to-one educational prep with private lessons in voice and piano.
