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!


There are no Musical Improv Intensive classes being offered at this time.
