Description: Have you ever wanted to unlock the power of your voice? Have you been curious what kind of music you could create if you were simply given the creative time and space? Do you want to build more confidence in yourself? Come explore the art of musical improvisation! We will sing songs, move our bodies, and play musical games where we will create our own musical responses in the moment. We will use question and answer style improvisation using various instruments like drums, thumb harps, kazoos, keyboards, and xylophones. We will use scarves and other props to learn how to mirror and shadow movement. We will learn about drones and ostinatos as two foundational styles of musical improvisation. By the end of the class, we will be able to create short musical compositions in the moment with one another that reflect our thoughts and feelings.
