Intro to Musical Improv – Beginners Course. CPD Accredited!

A 6-week crash course in musical improv covering a vast range of singing styles, song structures, exercises and games. Really useful for those who want to give it a go but need a safe environment to let their musical hair down.

  • Building singing confidence
  • Singing styles

  • Absolute beginners (including particularly nervous or shy participants)
