Improvised Song and Music Intensive with Ron Hippe

February 7 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

This class is an intensive study of Musical Improv that will review classic song forms in a way that relates to improv, and allow participants to learn, practice and perform in a constructive group setting. We examine rhyming, timing, counting and “feeling” sections of a song. Using simple suggestions, we blitz-practice creating as many memorable choruses as possible. We explore how to make lyrics and content “poetic.” Learn to create songs & stories on the spot. This class runs the musical gamut; Gregorian chants, over the top pop songs, high-energy Broadway musicals, smoky jazz tunes and dropped beats. No singing experience neccesary.
