Musical Improv Essentials

2-Week Class on Core Improvised Song Skills

Find your voice and the confidence to use it in songs created off the top of your head!

Musical Improv Essentials is a two-week, introductory class to teach you all the basics of the art of making music in the moment. Our Musical Director, Mark S. Merrit will take you step by step as you learn how to improvise songs. You'll learn the fundamental tools for spontaneous singing so that you can immediately have a blast with improvised song! A great class for those looking to spark their creativity or for improvisers looking to expand their range of skills!

There's no need to "be funny" or "clever" or be able to "sing good". This class will show you that everyone can improvise and sing! If you can belt out Happy Birthday at the office birthday party, you are overqualified. Whether you want to do improvisation on the stage or more spontaneous off-stage or just have fun trying something new, this class is a great place to start your journey!
