Students will learn to improvise songs with an accompanist using song structures, and then by creating their own structures as they go along. We will also explore the use of music and musical theater genre elements in improvised scenes. By learning to work with and create their own rhythms and patterns, students will gain skills that they can apply to all forms of Improv.
Maximum class size is 12
