MasterClass announces that Mariah Carey will teach voice as an instrument
“Mariah is simply a genius. She’s one of the greatest artists of all time,” said David Roger, founder and CEO of MasterClass. “In her class, Mariah opens her studio for the very first time, teaching members how to use their voices throughout the music-making process, including in the studio and while navigating the industry.”
In her class, Carey reveals how the voice can be used as an instrument in its own right and how it can be an extension of the pen as a writer, enabling anyone to be a music producer. From communicating melodies to a string ensemble to transforming personal stories into iconic soundtracks, Carey will offer an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at his music-making process. Taking members into the Butterfly Lounge as she works on a reimagined version of her beloved hit “The Roof” with award-winning artist Brandy, Carey will examine the importance of background vocals in music creation and how to build a song with a choir of voices against a wall of sound. Carey will teach members how to use their personal experiences as inspiration to write music and tell a story. Sharing how Mobb Deep’s “Shook Ones Part II” inspired her writing on “The Roof,” she will show members how to listen across genres and use samples as building blocks. Carey will also reflect on the challenges she has faced in the music industry and provide tips for navigating the industry and maintaining creative control. Members will leave the class inspired to find their own voice, whether that means championing their own creative desires or perfecting it as an instrument.
“I’ve never let cameras in when I create, or when I write, and especially not when I sing,” Carey said. “But now I take MasterClass members to my studio to show them how they can write and produce music using their voices and become anything they want to be as long as they create, recreate, reinvent and reinvent .”
