Presented by: Joseph Golden, MM
Location: Hyatt Regency – Hanover F
A workshop/demonstration that will focus on lifting hymn playing to the highest standards expected of all keyboard playing in the popular realm of Collaborative Arts, presented by a member of the AGO and the National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS).
Emphasis will be on applying a truly collaborative understanding of what all keyboard players can do to assist improved singing. Specific focus will be on the crucial relationship between catch breaths and full breaths and their impact on tempo, phrasing in a vocal rather than instrumental manner, sensitivity to the highest and lowest pitches in melodic lines, and organ registrations that are supportive of good, healthy vocalism for amateur and professional singers.
