This course meets online via Zoom. Registration open through Tuesday 12/7/21.
Blues is a direct line to the most primal, powerful part of your soul. Great blues singers in history (e.g. B.B.King, Bessie Smith, Howlin’ Wolf) have thrilled us beyond measure.
Blues singer/educator Pamela Rose will shine a light on the music and life history of some legendary blues vocalists. We’ll delve into their cultural impact and vocal style, while listening, learning – then singing – their songs. Students will also be taught the fundamentals of blues theory (no previous music theory necessary.) With a lively series of exercises and singalongs, you’ll soon be moaning, keening, and singing the blues.
