Gino Vannelli’s Masterclasses

SEO LA SupportBlog6 Comments

I have met so many people after our concerts over the last couple of years asking about masterclasses. I’ve decided it is time.
As well as “the Art of Voice”, I will add something new, called “The Art of Production”, scheduled for the 10am to 1pm slot.
In this class I will demonstrate what has been my method of creating in the studio, including, my preferred instrument software, microphones, mic pre’s, compressors, EQ’s, and all other outboard gear as well as in-the-box- gear. I will demonstrate my method of programming, mixing, and mastering. After choosing a song, the class and I will ‘produce’ the song together. As in the real world, we will give ourselves a deadline–Friday, the last day of the masterclass. Even for the adept, I’ll suggest to take notes, as this class will entail much and move at a quick pace.
I will relegate the 2:30 to 5:30 segment to the Art of Voice. I have plans to conduct this masterclass slightly differently than I have in the past. As custom, I will ask the five voice students to submit a simple MP3 of a song they wish to work on, only this time I will personally tailor a piano track for each student. When the five vocals are completed, my intention is that each student will have a recording that will be world class, in terms of voice, piano arrangement, sound quality, and originality–something to be proud of.
See you this summer

  3. Hello Gino Vannelli and staff. I wish to attend your next master classes session. I have a 5 octave range with a disappearing middle that I must master for solid backgrounds and solo work as a versatile artist. My training comes from the Chicago Music College at Roosevelt University. However, working as a jazz and R&B club and gig performer can be challenging. I am a self made poet and lyricist always looking for great people to learn from and collaborate with. Please send master classes information to Deveree Greenwood to the email at Thank you!

  4. Dear Gino,
    I have been a fan since the age of 14 (albeit secretly because of rock music peer pressure). I have been a working musician and songwriter most of my life; rock, pop, ballads, R&B, country, gospel. I am now old (64) and pretty much stopped performing since my 1st child was born (14 years ago). As a result of my transition to being full time dad and husband (100% my choice to do this), I never completed my dreams of success as a musician (guitar is my primary instrument but I write on piano also). I have shared this brief backdrop as a prelude to inquiry about your art of voice or other classes in Oregon. It would be the capstone and crown of my life as a musician and songwriter to be taught by one of my musical heroes. I am nowhere near your genius, but some things that have come out of my musical soul may be interesting to you. Where and how do I start? I live in Orange County, California. I assume your classes, if still being offered, would be held in Portland. Blessings to you.
