THE NEWEST BLUES COURSE IN SCOTLAND returns for a second term in May 2019.

Aimed at teaching students all they need to know about Blues playing style, history and repertoire. 

Designed for musicians who have a command of their instrument, lead tutor, Thomas Lucas, along with Toby Mottershead and their team of leading professionals, will use classic recordings and examples of the great blues originals to give students a strong foundation in the blues. 

They will then focus on ensemble playing, covering the fundamentals of rhythm, harmony and improvisation in blues.
