Ornamentation, Vibrato and Improvisation, 1 Day CVT Course ONLINE master class

for singers with little or no CVT knowledge


Break free of the original song, work with ornamentation and improvisation & phrasing with the special CVT tools!

All styles are welcome.


Course description

This 1 Day Course is aimed at singers that have never worked with CVT and who wish to further extend their vocal ability getting secure in how to practice and integrate improvisation, phrasing and ornamentation as part of their vocal expression and vocal performance.

‘Ornamentation’ means to decorate singing. The decorations can be both melodic and rhythmic. They are also known as ‘fast phrasings’, rapid ‘runs of notes’, or (in classical music) ‘coloratura’ or ‘melisma’. Fast phrasings or melismas are often used in world music, Gospel, R’n’B music and many operas.

Here the singers get precise tools on how to break free of the original song adding rapid runs of notes and balance artistry and expression with technique and musicianship helping them to achieve and further develop their own original sound and improving their performances. When working with improvisation the singer gets a deeper understanding, find and try out the various melodic and rhythmic elements.
