Inspired by all the learning and fun from the Music Improvisation for Everyone workshops, this 6-week series is created for EVERYONE to explore the basic ELEMENTS of music-making. This class is open to ALL LEVELS, from novice to highly experienced musicians. All levels of experience can benefit from focusing on individual elements of music - from listening, to rhythm, melody, harmony, and mood - in a safe, nurturing environment of exploration and play. We will invite the possibility of simplicity as beauty, and we will wonder how playing within one element may generate layers and textures we might not have imagined before. If you're feeling a little uncertain about this whole "improvisation" business, this might be the perfect way to ease your way into the realm of improvising, before your plunge into one of our Saturday workshops. Six-week class series. Drop-in's are welcome, although the full benefit of attending all six classes will be AMAZING to witness.
