CLASSES WITH BISIA

It’s fun! It’s vocal improvisation and empowerment: claim your voice, learn to improvise, make up your own music, and did I mention fun? And it’s good for what ails you. It’s a great way to sing out despair, frustration, etc, and transform it through rhythm and time. All welcome.

 CLASSES WITH MARGOT

Drawing on work developed by numerous vocal improvisors, we’ll play with fun forms and structures that help build improvisation skills. We’ll look at the unspoken “agreements” of group improv and develop our musical listening skills. If you are a new improvisor wanting to learn some fundamental skills, or if you are an experienced improv singer wanting to expand your skills and repertoire, this class is for you 🙂 Let’s sing!!
