Fine Tune – Singing Masterclass with Yani

For people who have sung before and want to go the extra step to fine tune their vocal skills

A master class is a small group class where participants learn by receiving direct feedback on a prepared piece from a master – in this case Yani. Participants also learn by watching the other students workshop their pieces with Yani. So basically, you get to both see and experience Yani demonstrate her highly successful teaching style and share her extensive singing and performing wisdom with you and the group. Each person will sing a verse and chorus they have prepared and Yani will then give instruction on how to improve the tone, quality and sound depending on what she hears and what areas you may want to address. Then, you’ll sing again (maybe 2-3 times), putting into practice Yani’s pointers.

  • 1 day workshop
  • Previous singing experience required
  • $165  for full master class session
    $110 for auditing group activities

Gabe Monson attended Masterclass with Yani in June 2014

Thanks and a huge YAY for the skill and generous energy you put into our Masterclass on Saturday... it was wonderful to see people's voices drop in, open out, warm up. And their hearts too... You have such a talent... not just for your own singing, but for seeing what someone needs, for offering the right trick/gift/metaphor that will bring us along. SO look forward to working with you more in choir and groups and sharing the joy and depths of singing.
