Brennan Clark is a local Raleigh musician with a penchant for vocal harmony. He has served as the music director for Grains of Time (a capella group at NC State) for three years, performed as a beatboxer in the vocal band, Transit. Now he performs with his band, Retro Candy, as well as a solo artist under the name ‘Savage’. He has led vocal workshops internationally, and taught vocal and guitar to students of various ages and skill levels within the Raleigh area.

This series will be comprised of three sessions for people of all levels of musical experience, ages 15 and up. Attendance at all three sessions will be beneficial and is highly encouraged, but is not required.

$15 per sessions, if taken individually.
$42 for all 3 when purchased together. Save $3!

Each session will be broken into two portions, 'understanding the language' and 'speaking the language'. In the former we will develop a theoretical understanding of core musical concepts, in the latter we will use our voices to put these theories into action.

Session 1 — January 18
The first session will be called «5 + 7 = 12» and will involve a complete derivation of our twelve-tone music system by only using the numbers 5 and 7. We aim to understand how any single key of music is developed so we can sing within it freely. The singing part of the lesson will involve pitch matching, basic interval training, and scale singing. We will end the session with a short beatboxing tutorial.

Session 2 — January 25
The second session will be called «More than one voice». Here we will look at how different notes are put together to create and develop harmony. From this we will be able to build chords and understand the musical significance behind progressions we are already familiar with. The singing portion will involve fun harmony exercises along with a few barbershop tags. Again we will end with beatboxing.

Session 3 — February 1
The final session will be called «Vocal expression». Here we will discuss using all we've learned to express our complex artistic ideas with our voices. Central ideas of songwriting will be discussed as we let lyrics inspire us to create melodies and realize the chords they imply. We will wrap up the session with a fun improvised vocal jam.
