With Dave Asher
This class is good for anyone from the beginner who doesn’t feel comfortable singing to the expert who loves to sing. If your goal is to improve, you will. Exercises cover the range from group sonic explorations to solo songs, from rhyming choruses and choreography to truth in comedy with music. The focus is on applying the basic long form tools of agreement and group mind to the realm of music. This is a very organic connection. Finding the games of things, making patterns, keeping a rhythm, and supporting your teammate’s moves are essential to good improv and become even more relevant when the stakes are heightened to the point that music becomes necessary. Finding the truth in a moment brings even more rewards. There will be a performance night at the end of the eight-week session
When: Fridays, beginning May 2nd 6:00pm – 8:00 pm

Combustion and Craft : Creating Solo Material
With Michael Lehrer
Shaping inspired choices into unique, dynamic original characters.
First, this class will help you unleash those wonderful ideas that we all have. The thoughts and observations born from our unique lives. Simple, small, inspired ideas.
Second, we’ll develop the idea. Through improv and writing, alone and with the group, working through common pitfalls of cliche, writers block, over-thinking and working too hard.
This class will teach you to trust your gut, your choices, and all those funny things that inspire you.
When: Tuesdays, beginning April 29th 12:00pm – 3:00 pm
