Traditional Singing II (Minicourse) taught by Monica-Lisa Mills, Matt Borgmeyer ----- This is an intensive, two week version of this popular class. Register for Traditional Singing I at the same time for a discounted package. ----- Prerequisite: Traditional Singing I or permission of instructor. ------ This class will build on the foundations of Traditional Singing I with a more in depth exploration of a few traditional song types, depending on the interests of the class, and additional time to workshop songs in class. ------ We’ll learn more about the history and context of the songs, and focus on the nuances of social rather than performance-oriented singing. We’ll also look more deeply at the markers of various styles and practice harmonizing by ear. ----- The goal will be to end the course with a few songs that you would feel comfortable initiating on your own or harmonizing with at a session or gathering. ----- The class is supplemented by a course website containing background materials, online recordings and lyrics, and at least one singing gathering outside of class. ----- The class is an hour and a half long and meets two times. Limited to 8 people..
