This class will introduce students to the fundamentals of improvised music and help take your improv to the next level. Learn to put your thoughts and emotions into improvised songs that sound like they've already been written. We will explore rhythm and rhyme, common song structures with memorable hooks, and learn how to create our own Mini-Musicals on the spot.
