Performing Improv: Singing Songs (7 Week Course)
This event is now over. Check the What's On for upcoming events!
About This Course
This is part of our Performing Improv programme, which focuses on the skills to perform improv on stage.
In this course, we delve into the world of musical improv, drawing lyrics and tunes out of your imagination and putting them into the world. We'll build from experimenting with melody, rhyming and song structure into improvising full songs, both alone and in an ensemble.
No singing or musical experience is required, just a willingness to learn.
At the end of the course there will be a showcase event to apply the skills you have learnt.
This course takes place on Tuesday evenings. For other course times and locations please see our main Performing Improv page.
