Bebop Spoken There

New Independent Vocal Jazz Academy

The first British and International Vocal (Jazz) Academy workshop course will take place from Sunday 7 April 2013 with rolling enrolment thereafter.
Where:           West London

When:Fortnightly on Sundays

Who for:         Around 12 individuals who are serious about developing their knowledge and skills with a view to creating successful jazz performance – all styles.
Why:               BIVJA is keen to encourage mature students as well as young people at the start of their careers.
There are very few bespoke courses for vocalists who wish to empower themselves with a greater understanding of the rhythm section, band leading and performance confidence.
Is it for me?    Call for an informal chat on 020 8992 1571 (leave message and we’ll call you back).
Further course details: www.veronachard.com/bivja
Scholarship:
One full scholarship will be awarded per term
This is a high quality enterprise implementing the skills and experience of a full rhythm section. A course for those who wish to acquire a greater understanding of the working of that rhythm section plus harmony, aural, jazz music theory and jazz style through practical sessions integrating performance, history, vocal technique and all ‘tools of the trade’.
UNIQUE
BIVJA promotes a safe but challenging environment and it’s different because of its very  'hands on' approach. As the course develops ALL students will have acquired some practical knowledge of piano, bass, kit and percussion playing and band leading skills in addition to vocal and technical skills.
Sessions will be followed by a de-brief, student feedback, career support and Q+A - again a unique opportunity
Specialist workshops:
Participants will have access to workshops on specific skills such as PA set up and mixing and workshops with visiting professional singers, instrumentalists and mentors.
The support group created by this enterprise will assist students in self-promotion and performance opportunities.
Schedule:
The course runs for 7 x 6 hourly sessions plus one performance session per term. The course allows us to accommodate working musicians and freelancers plus students and those in regular employment.
Course founder:
Verona Chard LRAM, Dip Ram studied at Trinity Laban and the Royal Academy of Music and is a jazz / classical crossover singer, lyricist, actor promoter and vocal coach. She has performed internationally – most recently at the Kathmandu Jazz Conservatory Festival in Nepal at the Pizza Express Jazz Club, Soho, London.
She sits on the MU Jazz Section committee, is an Equity member and visiting expert coach on X Factor Poland and at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, London on the BA (Hons) Acting course - Musical Theatre Pathway. She also collaborates with award winning jazz singer Claire Martin OBE and pianists John Horler, Gareth Williams and Chris Neill.

Best Wishes,
