Introducing Foundations of Musical Improv. In this unique series, you’ll learn how to spontaneously make up songs but with a coherent understanding of the tropes and traditions of musical theater. Absolutely no prior experience needed in singing, music, music theory, or improv- this class is designed to provide you with all the necessary skills. Throughout 6 interactive sessions, Sebastian Blue, who teaches a Stanford course on the subject, will guide you on a journey from off-the-cuff lyric invention, expressing narratives and emotions through song, and experimenting with various musical genres – all without a script. This course centers on creativity, spontaneity, and deep fun. As a participant, you’ll be part of a dynamic collaborative cohort, refining your teamwork skills and embracing the thrill of ensemble work—all while developing deeper connections within this unique group of individuals.
