LocationUCPC High School Room
DescriptionThe Blues, as a musical idiom and common language, pervades EVERY style of American music and is an essential communication tool for every musician who lives here. Like the fugue, waltz, and sarabande, it's a musical form. It's also a harmonic and melodic system with a very specific set of moves and skills. We will analyze and PLAY the Blues on bowed instruments, focusing on the form, and the three crucial Blues Notes in the Blues scale and how to use them. For intermediate and advanced students.
