Solo Singing Workshop
Solo Singing Workshop
[Virtual Improv Notice: We’ve cracked the code on making solo singing work with a live musician in Zoom. Come check it out!]
Comfortable in duets but freak out inside when it’s time for you to step center stage and sing an improvised solo? Not sure what to do when you’re alone on stage? Wonder how to set someone else up for solo success and support them? Or just want to get reps in and add some tools to your musical improv toolbox?
In this workshop we will focus on mastering improvised solos, a scary thing that comes up a lot in improvised musicals. We will focus on the dynamics within the songs as well as the scene work leading up to the songs so that you can set your castmates and yourself up for success and fun. We will have lots of fun and it may even get a little emotional! It’ll be great! Previous musical improv experience required.
