Workshop: What is swing?


Louis Armstrong reportedly answered: “If you gotta ask, you’ll never know”.
This masterclass will try to answer the question while taking a look at how jazz singers handle swing. Participants will have the opportunity to sing during the masterclass. If you wish to do so, please prepare one of the following songs:

  • Fever
  • Honeysuckle Rose
  • I’m Beginning To See The Light

Everyone is welcomed!
