• “Heart of the Blues”: Writing Blues Songs/ All levels (Two parts)

  • with Kerri Powers

We all love the classics, the standards, and the folk tradition of the blues, but that’s not to say you can’t write your own! Songwriting and making up songs has always been a part of the blues tradition, from Bessie Smith to Big Mama Thornton to Janis Joplin. In this class we’ll find compelling ways of telling your own story within a blues and soul context.
