We’ve Got the Blues

We’ve Got the Blues


Use this activity to have students create their own blues story.

Using this backing track video, have children create their own blues story. They can choose a real issue or concern in their lives or create an entirely fictional narrative.

  • Challenge each student to write a narrative that lasts for a full 8 bar blues phrase. Older or more advanced students can be asked to sing their narrative along with a simple melody. Younger students can rhythmically speak their story.
  • Have them end the story in the 8th bar with the phrase “I’ve got the blues”
