YOU WILL RECEIVE A ZOOM LINK FOR ACCESS TO CLASS SESSIONS UPON REGISTRATION. PLEASE REGISTER WITH AN EMAIL ADDRESS YOU CHECK REGULARLY.
Join singer, improviser and music educator Lisa Forkish for this grounding, playful and expressive six-week course. Bringing compassion and openness to the learning space, Lisa will teach vocal improvisation from the inside out. We will discuss use of patterns, phrasing, rhythm, melody, harmony, syllables, language, and most of all, staying in direct contact with the music of the moment. Participants will learn how to take a solo, quieting the inner critique and allowing the music to flow. Participants will also learn how to collaboratively build an improvised a cappella piece of music.
Singing is a birthright. Each of us has a unique voice, a song that is within. Let it be free! Open to singers, instrumentalists and non-musicians, and no prior experience necessary.
