Masterclass Your Voice in Rome, Italy

12 May

YOUR VOICE! A vocal masterclass by Floor Jansen


June 7, 2016

Group 1 (beginners): 13:00 – 15-00

Group 2 (experienced): 16:00 – 18:00


Mississippi Music School
Associazione Culturale

Borgo VITTORIO 79, - Roma

(P. Risorgimento - Metro Ottaviano)

In this masterclass we will focus on vocal techniques and song interpretation. The technical part can be seen as a check-up: what do you know, and what do you actually use? The techniques are there to keep your instrument healthy and strong and to explore its boundaries.

This session is designed for both beginner and experienced singers who are 16 years of age or older (those who are just starting with a group/choir/band and those who have performed or perform regularly). Experience with lessons welcome but not necessary.

We will sing with the whole group (exercises) and you will also get the chance (option) to sing alone. For more advanced singers, we will focus on song interpretation: can you make the song sound good; in other words “tell its story”? Plus: pick Floor’s brain! We can work on specific problems; focus on boundaries you would like to cross (higher, lower, softer, louder, etc.).

Each singer can bring one song for practice (have an instrumental ready to work with, either on CD or in mp3 format). We will take the time to listen to a part of it and Floor will advise you on what technical aspects you should focus on and how to work and study to make the song sound better.

You will hear other singers sing and get advice that will also be informative for yourself. If you have specific questions: ask them! This masterclass is there to inspire you to explore your sound, better your technique and to feel the music even more than before.

I look forward to singing with you!
