Take your musical improv to the next level. We will work on crafting songs that you want to sing - having more control in your song so you can do anything and everything that you want to do with it. Students will learn to use songs to heighten the game of the scene. We will also look at show structures and musical theatre genres, composers, and archetypes and learn how to apply them to your work.
