Getting up on stage and making up a song, completely on the spot, may sound scary but also awesome!…Because it is! In this hyper-supportive drop-in-intro to musical improv, we’ll follow the fear and find the fun and create scenes and songs together as an ensemble.
Designed for improvisers of all levels, and musical abilities with an open mind and an open heart ready to collaborate.
Yes, you will be singing, however, you don’t need to be a “good singer”, you just have to commit and sing as if no one is listening and believe everyone can be a great singer. When the spoken word no longer suffices, we MUST break into song.
