Workshop: Intro to Free Improvisation

California Jazz Conservatory, 2087 Addison St., Berkeley, CA

Experience the joy of flying without a net in this introduction to free improvisation. Drawing on what we already know about song form, sound, melody, harmony, rhythm, and creative expression, we’ll find our way in to spontaneous music making. Expect to expand your musical vocabulary and expressive tools, to find links between songs and spontaneous composition and, perhaps most importantly, to rediscover the exhilaration of free expression. Open to all vocalists and instrumentalists. Some singing/playing experience necessary.
