Learn to create new songs instantly. Join us for a free night of on-the-spot song crafting. It doesn’t matter if you’ve ever sung a note, or you’re someone who’s never picked up an instrument before—everyone is welcome.

It’s the perfect introduction before you join in the fun and try your hand at musical improv through improv games!

For the first 20 minutes: we’ll kick things off with a live demonstration of a fully improvised musical. You’ll see improvised songs in action with a showcase led by a team of dedicated learners and performers just like you. From spontaneous melodies to quick-witted lyrics, you’ll see a musical story unfold before your eyes.

In the workshop: we’ll delve into the fundamentals of musical improv, learning common song structures such as verse-chorus songs or tagline songs. It’s your turn to jump in and give musical improv games a try!
