SAN FRANCISCO, April 26, 2022 — MasterClass, the streaming platform where anyone can learn from the world’s best across a wide range of subjects, has announced that Mariah Carey will teach a class on how to use the voice as an instrument. For the first time, Carey will bring members into the Butterfly Lounge, her mobile studio, to show how they can use their voices to sing and write and produce melodies, lyrics, and instrumentation that blend genres and break barriers. In addition, 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, where subscribers get unlimited access to all 150+ instructors with an annual membership.

“Mariah is simply a genius. She’s one of the greatest artists of all time,” said David Rogier, founder and CEO of MasterClass. “In her class, Mariah is opening up her studio for the first time, teaching members how to use their voice throughout the music-making process.”

In her class, Carey reveals how the voice can be used as an instrument and how it can be an extension of the pen as a writer, making it possible for anyone to be a music producer. Carey will provide an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at her music-making process by communicating melodies to a string ensemble to turn personal stories into iconic soundtracks. 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 making music and how to build a song with a choir of voices versus a wall of sound. Carey will teach members how to use their personal experiences as inspiration for writing music and telling a story. Sharing how Mobb Deep’s “Shook Ones Part II” inspired her writing on “The Roof,” she will show members how to listen beyond genres and use samples as building blocks. Carey will also reflect on the challenges she 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 voice, whether advocating for their creative desires or honing it as an instrument.

“I’ve never let cameras in when I create—not when I’m writing, especially not when singing,” Carey said. “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.”

Lessons in this online class include:
