SongProv Solos

with Tim Redmond
"As a student improviser, one of the most challenging things for me was bringing a depth of emotion to the scenes I was in. I looked at several ways, but it wasn’t until I took a course on improvised singing with Impro Melbourne that I found a way past my block. A Songprov course allows you to find your own rhythm and the music gives you the right context for emotion. A sad tune, and you’ll sing a ballad. A happy tune and you’ll sing about positive things. Couple this with an easy to remember set of structures, and you’ll be soon be belting out solos, duets and ensemble numbers. You’ll be able to take that next step. And you don’t even need to know how to sing. Songprov gives you confidence, commitment and conviction. I took an Impro Melbourne Songprov course, and now I can’t stop. I even sing at work now. Help me!” Jason
 
This course if for those who have done SongProv with Tim before or have some musical impro experience.
New to songProv? See the SongProv for Beginners.
 
Songprov can give sweaty palms to even the most experienced improviser and a solo song can really raise the heart rate.  Yet solo numbers can be a joyous release if we connect to our emotions and let that inspire the words and keep the song simple.
 
Students will be coached in the craft of improvised solo songs, including -
  • singing from the heart and body
  • the technique of verse,chorus & bridge
  • the worth of playing from character wants and keeping it simple
  • the value and meaning in repetition and stillness
  • claiming the stage and the moment
  • supporting with group harmony

No waiting. No hedging. Go. It’s an act of boldness and trust and you can do it!
