RIFFS, RUNS & AD-LIBS
Today’s pop music is truly a form of r&b, but what makes r&b so special? What makes r&b vocals so powerful and memorable? It’s all in the « riffs, runs and the ad-libs. In this brand new class we will explore the notes used for typical and more advanced riffs and runs, how to learn your favorite ones but also, how to make your own killer riffs. The special added bonus is that we will work on vocal ad-libs, which is that secret ingredient that separates the good from the great singers. Ad-libbing is a skill that all the top r&b singers have mastered. It allows them to express themselves fully and leave their personal stamp on any song. This class is a fun, creative class meant for singers of all levels.
