SINGING FOR UKULELE PLAYERS: BUILDING JOY AND CONFIDENCE IN YOUR VOICE
In this lighthearted, 1.5-hour workshop, we'll explore vocal tools used by the pros and use our ukuleles to help us find the melody and rhythm of a song, using "Walking After Midnight" as our working song. Vocal teacher Jody Albright joins Ukulele Clare and Rebecca Padula in this special class where we’ll explore a variety of techniques, identify our vocal ranges, see how easy it is to change the key of a song to match different vocal ranges … and we’ll learn what the heck a key is!
In this workshop, you'll:
- Loosen up with some physical and vocal warmups
- Learn how your breath can better support your singing
- Identify your vocal range and learn how to change song keys to match it
- Tune your voice and ear to the melody notes in a song
- Practice coordinating singing and playing the ukulele
- Get access to the class video for a full year
You will get the most out of this class if you can maintain a steady basic strum and switch among the following chords with ease: C, C7, Dm, F, and G.
Led by Jody Albright, a vocalist who enjoys singing many styles of music and especially loves to improvise. She is also a voice instructor and circle-singing leader. She has been performing and teaching since the 1980s. Jody has always been especially interested in helping people 'find their voice' and discover the joy of singing.
