Students learn further to translate theoretical knowledge into singing skills. They work on building a difficult repertoire of rhythmic, harmonic and melodic concepts common in jazz & pop styles, sight-reading arrangements in various styles, and are introduced to specific kinds of sight-reading.

related to all practical as well as theory modules.
The most important objective of Tilt Vocals 2 is teaching the student to deploy theoretical knowledge when singing and interpreting melodies and improvising and writing guidelines, choruses and specials in more complicated pieces. During the course, you will be taught to sing in three parts and to apply the most important arpeggios both with and without additions. You will also study the use of leading tones and chromatics, and the application of the more advanced scales to the most common seventh chords. This will first be practiced in conjunction with II V I and then in pieces. Ample attention will be devoted to altered harmonies, which many singers find difficult. You will also be taught to create three-part guidelines and choruses, and to sing them in the way in which they are used in jazz harmony and the more sophisticated pop music. The lower chord tones and additions are used here. During the final part of the course year, the main subject will comprise improvising over chord schemes with extensive modulations and creating and singing specials.
