Musical Improv Crash Course with Jon Bander

Sunday, October 28, 2018 | 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm


This workshop will teach you everything you need to know to start being a kick-ass musical improviser! First, we’ll go over song structures, taking scenes into songs and different song types to create a full-length narrative musical (opening number, protagonist song, antagonist song, etc). Then we’ll put it all together and start creating musicals ON THE SPOT! We’ll also include tips and tricks for bringing out your most unique, powerful characters and the best way to sing memorable, improvised, GENIUS songs! Beginners and advanced players welcome. If you’ve ever thought about trying musical improv, or you just want to get better at it, this is the workshop for you.

Musical accompanist provided.
