Take a look at your class notes before class!

After we meet:

Studio Coursework:

The principles we've covered so far are just that: principles. If you've been using the basic applications of these in your studio, you may already have made the choice to change it up! Knowing what you're after, as well as how & why these principles work, you can apply them to various exercises as needed.

  • Principle 1: Hunn - shifting attention

  • Principle 2: Hunn-ee - doing the math

  • Principle 3: The Nasty Triangle - creating the environment for, then doing the changes

  • Principle 4: Cartoon Mouse - Pop sounds for M2 and vocal camouflage

    • Register separation exercises - yodel, Wile E. Coyote​


This is catch-up week!

  • If you haven't made time to watch the videos or do the reading, now's the time!

  • If you've done everything, then enjoy your week off!

Jacob Collier

As a teen, the London native began posting music videos and soon attracted a lot of attention, including that of Quincy Jones, who mentored him.
Collier plays any instrument you put in front of him, conducts "audience choirs," has a deep sense of harmony, and is a truly joyful musician.
