Musical Improv I: Sound-Play! (in-person)
Six Week Course | Adults Only (18+)
Explore the surprisingly accessible and freeing power of music making. While playing with breath, rhythm, and vocalization you will learn that improvising music is really not so far away. Students develop a solid vocabulary of musical technique by playing with sound through a variety of fun exercises and games. Topics covered include: crafting rhythmic ideas, melodic singing, constructing musical form, incorporating dynamics, utilizing vocal ranges, understanding harmonic progressions, deep listening, and ensemble play. Whether you are an improvisor, musician, artist or simply craving tools to take your shower singing to a whole new level this class has something for everyone. No prior musical experience is necessary.
