Musical Improv: Voice 1 | Teacher: Jeremy St. Martin | Mondays 7-10PM | $225
Musical Improv: Voice 1 is a preview class for the Go U Musical Improv Program. Just like learning improv, you must learn the skills first and build on them. Doing musical improv is the same: building up skills with your voice. The musical improv scene is growing in the Detroit area, offering a fresh take on improv. However, singing can seem intimidating to many people, including those who perform improv regularly. Go Comedy does know this though: everyone can do musical improv! This course is designed to help you bring out confidence in your voice using your natural talents, as well as building on various vocal techniques and warm ups. Learn the basics of breath control, voice placement, and posture. In order to do musical improv, you need to have confidence in your voice. This course will help you find it and develop it. The course will prepare you to perform a small private recital at the end (guests will be invite only).

No improv experience necessary (so whatever class level you're at, or have already graduated, this class is for you)
