Advanced Performance Longform Music Improvisation Course

Level 4 of The Maydays Longform Music Improvisation Course

Maydays Heather Urquhart and Joe Samuel lead this advanced-level 4 of The Maydays Longform Musical Improvisation Courses.

You’ll have 8-weeks to stretch your longform musical improv wings. Creating a musical from nowhere. It looks like a miracle feels like flying and is much easier to do than you expect.

Building on the level 3 course* you will explore more song structures and ways of using music and singing in your improv scenes. The emphasis is slightly more towards scenic and longform elements of musical improv.

What can I expect?

– Musical games and exercises
– Different vocal styles and ranges
– Scenes going into songs
– Putting together longer runs of scenes and songs or a musical piece
– In this course, we will be learning the basics of stagecraft, musical theatre and presentation.
-Singing is scary for so many people so we will also be finding out how to support vocally and physically.
– Performance Showcase to show off your musical longform superpowers

Who is this course suitable for?

– Adults aged 18 100
– People who survived and enjoyed beginners/level 2 musical and longform improv (or those who have done our intro to longform music)
– Anyone looking to expand their range of longform musical improvisation skills.
– People who have done our longform and music courses and would like to start moving towards scenic and longform elements of musical improv

The people, the songs, the silliness, the seriousness, the camaraderie. Like having access to a toy box full of adventures every week. Even if I really wasn’t in the mood after a full day at work, within about 20 minutes I was doing something nonsensical and loving every minute of it.
