Five-time Grammy winner Mariah Carey is partnering with MasterClass to teach a lesson on “The Voice as an Instrument.”
Learn to Use Your Voice as an Instrument
For the first time ever, Carey will bring members who sign up to take her class into the Butterfly Lounge, her mobile studio. There, she will show them how they can use their voice not only to sing; but also to write and produce melodies, lyrics, and instrumentation that blend genres and break barriers.
“Mariah Carey Teaches the Voice as an Instrument” covers a wide range of topics; including classes like “Writing With Samples,” “Producing With Your Voice,” “Taking Care of Your Voice” and “Surviving in the Music Industry.” Carey also teaches lessons on background vocals, as well as a section called “Lyricism: Write About the Realness.”
“Mariah is simply a genius,” said David Rogier, founder and CEO of MasterClass. “She’s one of the greatest artists of all time. In her class, Mariah is opening up her studio for the first time ever; teaching members how to use their voice throughout the music-making process; including in the studio and while navigating the industry.”
A Special Opportunity For Mariah Carey Fans
“I’ve never let cameras in when I am creating. Not when I’m writing, and especially not when I’m singing,” Carey said in a statement. “But now I’m taking MasterClass members into my studio to show them how they can write and produce music using their voice and become anything they want to be as long as they create, re-create, reimagine, and reinvent.”
Members will be the first to hear the reimagined version of “The Roof” with award-winning artist Brandy, and see Carey in action as she directs Brandy on background vocals. Carey’s class is now available exclusively on MasterClass. Subscriptions are available for $15 monthly, which gives members unlimited access to hundreds of lessons with all 150+ instructors on the platform.
