Vocal Blues

The blues is the foundation of almost all of jazz. This ensemble course enables singers to understand the blues in its many guises, to interpret the blues with feeling, and to apply its patterns and moods to their own repertoire and improvisations. The course also affords vocalists the opportunity to sing with the accompaniment of Mr. Mance, one of the great blues pianists of our time. The course is a part of the required vocal curriculum. 2 credits
