🎵🎭 Elevate Your Musical Improv: Dive Deep into Songwriting Techniques! 🎭🎵

Are you a musical improviser looking to level up your skills and take your performances to new heights? Join our latest musical improv course, where we’ll explore the techniques of songwriting and how to seamlessly integrate them into your improv. This course is recommended for those with previous experience but is designed to help you unlock your creativity and bring your musical improvisation to life like never before!

About the Course:

A unique opportunity to delve into the art of songwriting within the context of improvisational performance. Led by Heather Urquhart (Showstoppers, The Maydays) and Joe Samuel (The Maydays, The Concept) this course will provide you with the tools and techniques you need to craft memorable songs on the spot, elevate your performances, and captivate audiences with your musical storytelling.

What You’ll Learn:

  • Foundations of Songwriting: Explore the fundamental elements of songwriting, including melody, harmony, rhythm, and lyrics, and learn how to incorporate them into your improv performances.
  • Song Structure and Form: Dive into different song structures and forms, from verses and choruses to bridges and refrains, and discover how to use them to create dynamic and engaging musical moments.
  • Lyric Writing Techniques: Learn how to write compelling lyrics that convey emotion, tell stories, and connect with audiences, even in the heat of the moment.

  • A hugely fun and relaxed way to start your journey into musical improv, and just a lovely way to spend a day.
    Justine de Mierre, Improv Teacher, The Unqualified Yes

    Lauren Bambauer, Improv Teacher, California
  • This was the most relaxed, unstressed and happy I’ve ever felt in my life. I just can’t truly express how grateful I am.
    Ben Stratford, Freshman, BYU
  • Simple instructions that turn out to be very useful. What has seemed complex, inscrutable and hard becomes accessible. You find answers to questions you hadn't thought to ask yet.
    Harvard Henrikson, Molecular Biologist, Norway
  • With Heather and Jules you will try everything in improv, and then, the opposite, and then the same thing, only different. They will change the way you see and do improv (for the better)!
