Making It Up: Improvisation for everyone! – March 21, March 28, April 4, April 11, April 18 at 7PM Eastern

Think you have to be born with a special talent to play music that isn’t on the page? Think again! Just like learning to read between the lines or draw pictures of imaginary objects, anyone can learn to play notes that aren’t on the page.

“Improvisation” sounds like a huge, intimidating thing to attack head on if you don’t think of yourself as an improviser. So in this series, we’ll break it down systematically and focus each class on a specific aspect of making stuff up.

Of course, if you play Renaissance or Baroque music, the ability to ornament and embellish is an expected part of these styles. And there are lots of modern day settings where improvisational skill is useful.

These exercises are also great for improving your command of harmony and chords, great for your listening and ensemble skills, great for your recovery skills when you get thrown off in an ensemble, and also just really fun!

This class is based on the previous improvisation series, back by popular demand! But it has some changes and additions as well.

Dates don’t work for you? Not to worry! All registered participants will be sent a recording of each session after it’s over, so you can catch up on what you miss any time!
