In this course you can experience the joy of gospel music! Gospel is a musical tradition that comes from the Afro-American community and is the root of much of the current popular music. Gospel music is a great way to learn how to sing your solo(’s) better, but it also lend itself perfectly for improving your ability to harmonize. During her career, professional singer and singing coach Caro Dest experienced herself how gospel helps develop both aspects.
What will you be doing?
In this course you will work with music that is unmistakably linked to the gospel tradition. You can expect old and new soul, jazz and r&b songs, but also the so-called ‘negro spiritual’, which is inextricably, historically part of gospel, will be featured. As such, this course also pays some attention to the cultural background of this musical tradition, besides developing your singing skills. You will practice individually as well as together, because looking and listening to each other is very educational. On Friday we will end the week with a performance of what was learned during the week.
All in all, a rhythmical, soulful and uplifting course!
