Learn how to create laugh-inducing lyrics and sensational songs on the spot.
In this class we will work on some or all of the following skills: rhyming, creating songs using “forwards and backwards” techniques, narrative and joke-form approaches, understanding song structure, improvising in different song styles, putting lyrics to existing melodies, creating new songs from scratch, and writing impromptu parodies. We will build the skills necessary to eventually create an entire musical from an audience suggestion.
Each time we meet, the syllabus is a combination of practicing previously learned skills as well as taking on new challenges. Each month there are wonderful familiar faces as well as talented new ones.
Students of all skill levels welcome. Singing proficiency not required.
