Mouth Music provides students the opportunity to learn the craft of a cappella from world class instructors of music and songwriting. Foundational to advanced vocal ensemble skills will be honed while learning contemporary music, which will also include original "circle singing" songs by the students. We will also integrate vocal percussion techniques to allow the group to explore the realm of “vocal band” vs. traditional vocal music. Make no mistake, Mouth Music ain’t your grandpa’s a cappella or barbershop group (but we do think he’ll still LOVE it). Music for this course will be specially arranged for the group or specifically chosen for the individual group's ranges, aptitudes and skill sets. All purchased arrangements will become something the students can keep when the ten week course concludes. Lead instructor and highly sought after choral director, Stephen Ross, of the internationally acclaimed vocal group FACE has been educating students of vocal and musical arts for more than fifteen years. The ten week course will also include master classes with guest artists such as award winning singer-songwriter Cody Qualls and world renowned vocal percussionist Mark Megibow, also both from FACE.
