Specialty Workshops

Musical Improv with Brian Jones

In this two hour workshop, you’ll learn a number of improv singing games as well as how to incorporate music into your scene work. We will warm up and gather around the piano and learn what makes an improvised song work and how to sustain it. Don’t sing? That’s ok, neither does Colin Mockery on Who’s Line, and that’s never stopped him. If you have any fear of musical improv, this is the class for you! Some level of previous improv is recommended.
