Vocal Harmony: Doo Wop to Early Rock

$202 ($192 members) · 80 minutes · Weekly for 8 weeks

Dissect the foundations of harmony in rhythm and blues, doo wop, and early rock, the bedrock of our present rock ‘n roll music.  Listen and explore the stacking of voices, the stretched root lines, the bass voice pendulum, and the rich embellishments that characterize these vocal styles following in the footprints of such greats as Curtis Mayfield, Solomon Burke, The Mills Brothers, and The Miracles. Take advantage of the chance to form smaller groupings to match and blend compatible voices. It’s all done by ear as we use no complex charts, just the lyric sheets.
