Guitar and Vocal Intensive with Tuck & Patti
The Jazzschool is proud to present one of the great duos of all time in an intimate workshop designed to fine-tune collaboration between guitarists and singers!
Tuck will spend time with student guitarists working on the finer points of accompaniment including intros, endings, texture, voicings, rhythm and countermelody as applied to comping for singers.
Patti will work with student singers on intonation, rhythm, increasing pitch, dynamic and expressive range, choosing material and listening, responding and interacting with one’s partner while connecting with the listener. And, most importantly, having big fun while doing it
Everyone will come together. Together Tuck and Patti will focus on the issues that duos most often need to work on jointly, including collaboration, arranging, improvisation, texture, feel, sound, personalities, etc. Then everyone will prepare together for a 4:30 pm concert at the Jazzschool featuring Tuck & Patti and all of the student participants!
