Graduated from Musical Improv 301 this week! The class, hosted at The Clubhouse, finished off with a 30 minute set during The Coconut Club, a bi-weekly musical improv show at the venue, where we improvised "Hip-Hop: The Musical!"
It has been so fun to grow with my classmates over the past two years and get extra time to focus on song structure, storytelling, and capital-M "Musical" performance outside of my work with Robot Teammate and Sumeau. Teacher Tara Copeland came highly recommended by my fave instructor at UCB, Jess Eason, and offers several levels of musical improv instruction here!
Been improvising at least five days a week between class, Robot, and Laughter for a Change jams (where we've been playing with a reallllly fun new form and a new outreach program is bubbling!) which has been an excellent counterpart to revising drafts and songwriting for TIMEHEART. Sad for this class to be ending, but I'm excited to focus on my next performance goal - playing guitar while performing musical improv! More on that soon....
