Have you ever wished you could just pick up your instrument and improvise? Want to take your soloing to the next level? The Improv lab is a weekly group workshop where musicians can learn and explore the various approaches and concepts to the art of improvisation. Every week we will discuss improvisational techniques and how they can be adapted across a variety of genres including Rock, Blues, Reggae, Funk, Pop, Jazz and more! This weekly group lesson will focus on building a community of learners and improvisers through listening assignments and discussions, basic music theory concepts, exploring the building blocks of improvisation and offering weekly opportunities to share your improvisations with others. The improv lab is open to musicians of any skill level or instrument. Let’s improvise!
