Jazz Singing by Ear

Master a jazz standards and
scat solo in 4 weeks
Learn to sing jazz

without the theory-overwhelm
March 1st-31st

How can you truly make a jazz standard your own?

And feel free and confident with your scat?

  • You find jazz intimidating and don’t know what notes to sing or scat syllables to use
  • You want to find your own style when singing jazz and not sound like a copy of someone else
  • You lack confidence and feel overwhelmed when changing up a melody
  • You are not sure which notes are right when improvising
  • You usually sing pop/musical theater/classical and finally want to sound like a true jazz singer when singing standards
  • You are getting lost in the songs, the moment you try changing them up or scat and improvise
  • You are not sure what songs are right for you and which key to pick

I know firsthand how intimidating and overwhelming singing jazz can be. There seem to be so many unwritten rules to follow that it feels impossible to know which notes to sing. You feel stuck and can’t figure out how to find the freedom and confidence to make a song your own, let alone scat and improvise.

Instrumentalists are full of good advice, talking about scales and music theory. Unfortunately, that means very little to you, and you find it intimidating and overwhelming and are starting to doubt you can ever learn to sing jazz properly. You feel there is so much music and emotion inside you, but somehow you get lost when you let go, trying to express it.

You really want to improve, but you don’t know which steps to take as a singer to find the confidence and freedom you see others perform jazz on stage.

What if there is an easy to follow, bullet-proof way to become the jazz singer and improviser you dream to be?

  • Feel free and confident when singing and improvising jazz
  • Have clarity on how to learn a jazz standard and practice improvisation
  • Know how to swing and find notes that work
  • Know which songs suit you and how to find your keys on your own
  • Have your first jazz standard ready to sing at the next jam session
  • Sound like you when singing jazz and not like a copy of someone else
  • Know how to easily connect with your band and audience
  • Be ready and confident to go out and perform more
  • Having fun singing jazz on stage without feeling overwhelmed

Hi, I'm Heidi.

I am deeply passionate about jazz and helping you find your way to sing it with freedom and having fun doing it!

In this 4-week online training I will teach you how to learn a jazz tune in an easy and practical way. You can apply this simple and tried process to any other tune and guarantee that you will sound authentic and true to yourself and the style.

In just a few weeks you will feel confident and free to sing your jazz tune with other musicians and safe to even improvise! All you need are your ears and a love for jazz singing. In jazz, we learn by doing - so be ready to take action!

For best results, be committed to invest about 25 min. a day into your craft. This time will consist of listening to music, practicing singing, training your ears and following the exercises laid out in the course. By the end you will have your first jazz standard and scat solo ready to sing at the next jam session.

This course is ideal for singers of all levels who want to learn a bulletproof way to feel self-assured and at ease in their jazz singing – on or off the stage. No prior musical training is necessary. You only need to be able to match pitch and sing a song without accompaniment.

Jazz Singing by Ear helped them

Don't just take my word for it...

How knowledgeable you are, Heidi! It gave me the confidence to approach a musical career as a professional. In a way, you've made me more of a professional through this process.
I have something to teach because I've been taught so well. I can perform with more confidence, in my style because jazz is open to my interpretation with the foundation you've laid out in this course.
This is a thorough course on learning jazz by ear that will leave you equipped to perform a jazz standard as interpreted by yourself!
You'll understand the layout of the music and be able to talk about it with instrumentalists you work with. Free scatting will be easier with this knowledge. You'll easily learn some music theory even without lessons dedicated to theory. There's a lot of resources you'll use & learn about that will help you whether you're practicing alone or with a band.

How does it work

Time is of the essence. To make sure you get the most learning out of Jazz Singing by Ear, Heidi aims to provide a schedule that works for you no matter which time zone you're in. Yet, she is making sure not to over-whelm you in the 4 weeks of coaching!

When are the lessons?

Each week we will work through a new module. ON Monday, 10 AM CET, you will get access to the new lesson videos on the course platform. You can then go through them in your own time.

What about the Q&A Calls?

And the Video Reviews?

What happens after the 4 weeks of coaching?

What is a Hot Seat Call?

Bonuses: Hot Seat Calls, Master Class, Workshops

At the beginning of the week a Q&A post will go up in the Facebook group. Heidi will go live on Thursday to answer your most pressing questions, so you get additional support to the lesson material. All calls are added to the course platform, so you can watch them again later.

You are very much encouraged to post videos of your progress and get feedback from your peers. Every week Heidi will select 3 videos that she will discuss and review. She won't be looking for the best videos but the ones she finds the group can most learn from. So, post your challenges, it will be rewarded.

You keep access to all lessons and call recordings until September 1st, 2021. To make sure you stay motivated, we have added special bonuses to the course! That is to give you an additional opportunity to get coaching on repertoire and vocal technique and have a chance to get your questions answered by Heidi.

A Hot Seat Call is a two-hour group call where Heidi will answer as many questions from the participants as time allows. Participants can get on a "hot seat" with Heidi, where she answers individual questions. Hot Seats are given first come, first served.

The Bonus Hot Seat Call will take mid-March, likely on a Saturday or Sunday to make sure most can attend live. Once we know which time zones all participants are joining from, we will announce the exact date and time. The same goes for the Repertoire Master Class in April and the Technique Workshop in May.

"This course is great because you can do the lessons in your own tempo and at home. Heidi is really experienced and knows what she's talking about. Even if it is an online seminar, you can always ask questions and even if I did not ask one, I read some questions and answers on Facebook and found them really helpful for me too.
Another pro for me was to "meet" so many singers from all over the world. To have the knowledge from a big group in one place is definitely a big plus!
