Ron Browning’s “Blue Note” Class For Vocalists

,

Enhance your vocals by using blues, pentatonic, harmonic/melodic minors, and other colorful scales and modes. Emphasis will be given to the “blue note,” or the “worried note,” of the blues scale, and the tension or exotic tones of the other scales. Vocal exercises will include singing scales and patterns of various scales. The singer will learn how to use fragments of these scales and patterns in their songs and be able to craft tasteful vocal licks. In the first few classes, students will sing without accompaniment in order to experiment with the “blue” note easier. Come to class with a couple of slow tunes to sing. Handouts and an exercise CD will be given.

Must have instructor’s permission to enroll. This class is not for the beginning singer.
