The ability to express yourself in a positive and creative way in society seems to be becoming more difficult with fewer outlets to express the frustrations of modern life. Blues boot camp will give people a window to view the possibilities of self-expression that music can provide them. It can happen through interacting with others in a creative way or finding an outlet for their creativity regardless of whether it’s a career move or just for the sheer fun, joy and pleasure that music can bring.
Arguably the ‘blues form’ is the basis for all for styles of contemporary western music. Whether it is pop, rock, rap, hip-hop, jazz, soul or funk, the roots are traced back to West African Tribal music. The communal, “call and response” influence of West African Tribal music is vast and significant and therefore worth understanding its application to contemporary music.
While having knowledge of the rules and theories of music is important, the ability to express yourself is equally so. Through ‘Blues boot camp’ participants will gain a basic understanding of the mechanics of the blues and gospel forms of music as well as practical ways to apply this knowledge to modern forms of music. Blues boot camp encourages freedom of expression, combining knowledge with emotion creating a link to the participants’ peers and the listening audience alike.
