Rhythm and the R&B Style

Develop an understanding of the fundamental role of West African polyrhythm in African-American R&B and learn why it is vitally important for singers to think, first and foremost, like drummers. This course begins with the work songs of American black slavery and progresses to the music of today’s contemporary urban and hip hop styles. Tools will be provided for cultivating rhythmic awareness, and singing with more ease and dynamic expression. Lots of singing in class!
