MUSICAL IMPROV INTENSIVE (4-week class)

In this month-long, once-a-week workshop class, improvisers will gain the skills needed to execute on basic musical improv short-form games and long-form musical improv song structures. You will learn sneaky methods for crushing rhyme scheme in a song or rap, how to create basic but impressive hooks, and how to launch from scene into song...and back into scene. You'll also may dance a tiny bit, but only a tiny bit, and you'll look soooo cool doing it.

No singing or musical improv experience is required for this course, just bring yourself!


  • Saturdays, 12:00pm - 2:00pm, 9/23/17 - 10/14/17
