GOOD QUESTIONS! Here are some quick answers……….
🎵 SongBird is more than singing. If you like to hum along to the music but have no aspirations of singing in public…this is a great way to learn some new things that will add to your appreciation of vocal jazz. No one who attends SongBird Fest is pressured to sing in front of others. We respect everyone’s comfort level.
🎵 Are you a music educator or musician that works with singers? Having an understanding of the voice as an instrument is a great tool in collaboration with presenting or writing music. Most educators and songwriters use singing in their teaching and creating.
🎵 SongBird is a day-long educational, performance, and networking event that welcomes ALL levels of musicians. We focus on performance, and improvisation, and strive to inspire each participant to discover their own special artistry in a nurturing community of like-minded individuals.
🎵 SongBird welcomes all experience levels of musicians. We never stop learning! There is a conversation that naturally occurs where pros share experiences on their journey to performing and become natural mentors to those just starting their exploration of jazz performance.

Music is holistic. It has the power to move people on a multitude of levels. Through my voice, I want to be able to probe people to think and expand their preconceived conceptions about the voice. The voice is the one instrument that can communicate to all, crossing any existing barriers; language, sex, age, class, or race. —Miles Griffith
Miles Griffith’s non-traditional use of the voice as a percussive instrument, combined with an uncanny harmonic sense has made him a prime choice for many musicians. He also brings his performance energy to the education realm to excite, encourage and empower his students, making him a respected and sought-after jazz vocal educator for 35 years.
