PREREQUISITE: YOU MUST HAVE COMPLETED LEVEL 1 MUSICAL IMPROV OR EQUIVALENT AT ANOTHER COMEDY THEATER TO QUALIFY FOR THIS CLASS. In the comment section of Checkout, please list when you took said classes and who your instructors were.

 

If you fail to meet the prerequisites for this course and continue to register anyway, we will have to transfer you out and add the balance as class credit, to be used for other classes.

Building on the musical fundamentals learned in Level 1, Level 2 dives deeper into technique and structure to help you turn your scenes and songs into a musical! You’ll work on melody and style as well as structure and song-type. Exercises will focus on emotional commitment and heightening the stakes of a scene to help you find your best voice to start a solid and interesting song. With continued work on movement and teamwork, this class will help you develop the skills you need to get a standing ovation at the end of each number. You don’t have to be a great singer to be a great musical improvisor, come one, come all! Pre-req: Musical Improv Level 1 (or equivalent)Musical Improv Level 2 - Rachel Bouton
