The workshop will be specially tailored to accommodate the abilities of all the participants as we work together on classic or original arrangements of folk, Americana and / or folk-pop songs. By the end of the workshop, you will be prepared to move on to the challenges of an Advanced Vocal Harmony Workshop.

About the instructor, Joanna Katzen: Hailing from Southern California, Joanna grew up in an environment that exposed her to folk-music gatherings from an early age. She began singing and creating vocal harmonies with her father while still playing with dolls, and the music of Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger and Joan Baez was as common to her as milk and cookies are to other children.
Joanna holds a bachelor’s degree from the Berklee College of Music where she studied performance and songwriting. She brings with her well over a decade of performance experience both in the US and abroad. She has performed in various sized ensembles and choirs, and as a solo and duo performing-songwriter act. She is the recipient of the 2013 Walter W. Harp Liberal Arts, Music & Society Award for Outstanding Achievement in Research, Civic Engagement & Performance Relating to Music and Society.
