Get a solid understanding of the 12 bar blues and how to improvise vocally around it
The 12 bar blues is the most common form when it comes to singing and playing the blues. As a blues singer, you need to immerse yourself in the 12 bar blues and understand the cycles within the 12 bars. The first four bars is the introduction, after that, we have some development and finally, we get the climatic turnaround that leads us back to the beginning. As a blues singer, you must understand how to phrase your lines and licks with style and attitude. You must also be able to hit exactly the right notes at the right time when the harmonies change. Blues may seem easy, but to sing the blues really well require expert blues voice lessons. At the London Singing Institute, we make absolutely certain that you learn all the correct techniques from day one.
We never compromise on foundations and make sure that you get to know the blues inside out!
