Musical Improv Toolkit!
One Day Workshop with Evan Kaufman and Rebecca Vigil
A good improviser has accomplished an acute awareness of the tone, point of view, and the rhythm of a scene.
A good musical improviser has accomplished an awareness of the tone, motivation, and rhythm of the scene AND the music that is enhancing that scene.
A good improviser has many tools available to them: emotion, physicality, point of view.
A good musical improviser utilizes those tools as well as song structure, the ability to rhyme, an understanding of melody.
In The Musical Improv Toolkit, Rebecca Vigil and Evan Kaufman will help you understand the fundamentals of Musical Improv. From the power of your melodic choices, to stay ing present while improvising musically and lyrically, to creating an improvised song that actually sounds like a real song!
