This is an improv class for anyone who has ever been interested in giving it a try - a chance to explore spontaneity and musical communication in a supportive setting. Gina will cover the minor blues scale and the roles rhythm, repetition, and phrasing, as well as some of the mental blocks associated with improvising. It’ll be fun, light-hearted and low stress!
