The weekend intensive will include both technique and repertoire work. Exercises and etudes will give students the opportunity to experience the principal concepts of the SAVI system while working in a group. Every workshop participant is asked to bring a song to work on, including two copies of the sheet music – one for the accompanist and one that can be marked up. Individual work on these songs will provide an opportunity to demonstrate the application of SAVI techniques in repertoire preparation. This intensive will include invaluable handouts and worksheets.
