Singing the Great American Songbook




Jane Wong

Do you like show tunes from Broadway musical theater and Hollywood movie musicals? In this course, we will sing some of the inspiration favorites from the Great American Songbook including Climb Every Mountain, Fly Me to the Moon and My Favorite Things. We will look at the poetry and prosody and analyze why these songs are so well loved from one generation to the next. This is primarily a singing course, but no singing experience is required.

Jane Wong grew up in Hong Kong where she learned Cantonese opera and studied Shakespearean theatre.  After her graduate studies at the Boston Conservatory, Jane has been busy directing musical theater and operas in schools, community theaters, and professional settings. Besides teaching piano and voice privately and music directing, Jane also plays piano for ballet and modern dance classes and offers group lessons. Her classes and lessons are fun and full of positivity, and she encourages participants to take risks for their professional and personal growth.
