"It Could Happen to You" the music of Jimmy Van Heusen

3 Sundays 12 noon to 3 PM
September 28. October 5, October 12

Part of my American Songbook composer series.

In this workshop we’ll explore and sing the music of Jimmy Van Heusen, who penned more than 120 hit songs, such as: “Like Someone in Love,” “Come Fly With Me,” “All the Way,” and “My Kind of Town (Chicago).” We’ll also listen to how some jazz greats have interpreted these songs and get ideas for our own arrangements. Students are provided with 7 lead sheets for songs, including practice-backing tracks. In the final week, we’ll work with an accompanist and sing these songs, trying out our own arrangement ideas.
