Blues Vocal Funshop I


pamela rose


Feel like singing the blues? Blues is the most primal, powerful part of your soul and singing it is more fun than you can possibly imagine! Students will explore the deep, authentic singing strategies of great blues singers from Jimmy Reed to Bonnie Raitt while developing blues repertoire. No prior music experience necessary. The class is open to both the novice singer looking for a supportive, fun, instructive course, and to the more experienced vocalist looking to gain insight and control on the bandstand. Each class is taught by the Bay Area’s own jazz/blues diva Pamela Rose and accompanied by legendary blues guitarist Danny Caron.

Wednesdays 6:30 – 8 pm
4/5 – 6/7 (10 weeks)
