A l'issu du cours, l'étudiant devrait comprendre davantage les origines du jazz, les styles de jazz, la structure des standards, les intros et les finales, comment travailler avec des musiciens, etc. Il sera également en mesure de chanter des standards avec un ou plusieurs musiciens après avoir appris des notions de techniques vocales, de phrasé, d'interprétation, de présence scénique, etc. On abordera aussi l'improvisation.

A la fin de la session, il y aura un « jam session » et, tout au long de la session, des possibilités de mettre en pratique les notions apprises avec des musiciens invités. Tout ça sous le signe du plaisir et de l'humour!
