Keep Your Hands To Yourself
Many of us have received well-intentioned advice about selling the song through use of faces and bodies. Too often, this results in too much hand movement to the point of distracting the audience. This class will explore what we as barbershop performers are trying to do on stage, and then see if it is possible to succeed in our purpose without the use of our hands. Class will include interaction, discussion and experimentation. Class offered in sessions 1 and 5.

Barbershop Language: Tools for Singing
Barbershop is a unique style of music in that we can enjoy a beautiful melody, and yet tell a compelling and exciting story along the way! Some have called this "Singlish"! In this class, we will review the most important singing language rules and apply them to a song example. We will also discuss the new Vocal Expression element in the Singing Category, and how it is affected by proper use of the barbershop language rules.

Story-based Performing

Learn why the story has to come first and then any embellishments or choreo. You'll learn about vocal character and how the vocal inflections, texture changes, and nuances impact the story-telling.

Storytelling - the Vocal Art Form
Once upon a time…Songs were made up of words and the words told a story…. We can develop great vocal skills, but if we don’t use those skills and others to move our audience, it’s a lost opportunity. Story telling is an art and you are the artist. Vocal inflection, word sounds, dynamics, vocal tone even silence are some of the tools you can use to paint your picture and leave a lasting impression. Come…storytellers and storyteller- wanna-bes.

The Emoting Body
One of the unique challenges of singing in the barbershop style is the dual focus on sound and presentation. As stage performers, the body is perhaps the most vital way to connect with the audience, enhancing an interp's impact. This class focuses on unifying the body with the emotional content of the lyrics being sung and will be useful to front-row singers, those aspiring to the front row, and everyone else in the chorus. Please wear comfortable shoes, as we will be walking around the room.

Deep Dive into the Performance Sphere
From Carl: In the class, Paul could also look at a DVD of their chorus or quartet, or listen to their quartet in person, and then talk about where he saw them in the sphere, and why he thought that. (What are you doing most of the time? What are the “markers” of a particular part of the sphere that you are exhibiting? Note how a performer can move from one part of the sphere to another part, even within the same phrase, let alone same song.)

Target audience: Any and all of the attendees of HCNW. This is a way to make the material accessible to all, but not mix it in with the special track.

This could be one 90 minute session, or run it twice on Sunday morning, or make it an 180 minute session.
