Don’t have an interest in vocal jazz?
Don’t really understand what SongBird is all about?
Feel you are already a pro and would not benefit from attending the day of workshops and performances?
Here are some quick answers……….
● SongBird is more than singing. If you like to hum along to music but have no aspirations of singing in public — This is a great way to learn some new things that will add to your appreciation of vocal jazz. No one who attends SongBird Fest is pressured to sing in front of others. We respect everyone’s comfort level.
● Are you a music educator or musician that works with singers? Having an understanding of the voice as an instrument is a great tool in collaboration of presenting or writing music. Most educators and songwriters use singing in their teaching and creating.
● SongBird is a day-long educational, performance, networking event that welcomes ALL levels of musicians. We focus on performance, improvisation, and strive to inspire each participant to discover their own special artistry in a nurturing community of like-minded individuals.
● SongBird welcomes all experience levels of musicians. We never stop learning! There is a conversation that naturally occurs where pros share experiences on their journey to performing and become natural mentors to those just starting their exploration of jazz performance.

REMINDER!! Our featured vocalist, Miles Griffith will present a concert on Fri., Nov. 4th at 7:00 p.m. in the beautiful Masterpiece Performance Studio at the Buell Media Center. Tickets sold separately at http://www.songbirdjazzfest.com
