FUNDAMENTALS OF IMPROV or A Level 1 at another improv school
In this class we will work together to gain a sense of comfort and confidence in creating interesting, memorable melodies and learn how to focus on the essentials of rhythm/range and silence and how to use each of these musical tools to take you out of the head-space of having to create content. Also we will use presentational skills to increase our level of stage presence and performance energy while improvising songs. We will work individually and in pairs and as a group on different exercises to make the songs we improvise out of thin air appear finished the very time they are performed. AND we will have a BLAST!!
