When: Thu., Jan. 14, 4:30-6 p.m. 2021
Thursdays, 4:30 - 6 pm, 1/14 - 3/18 (10 weeks). One of our great Bay Area bandleaders and saxophonists, Howard Wiley, leads this new class addressing “The Blues as Music” and “The Blues as Such.” We’ll explore historical and musical connections to all forms of American music and the practical and higher usage of The Blues in improvisation and composition. We’ll be playing, singing and clapping fun, spirit-filling blues for all! Each week Wiley will lecture on a different period and aspect of the music, from Louis Armstrong through to Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, Jimi Hendrix and beyond.
