with Brenna Dixon
"Songprov is my most favourite impro format in the whole wide world - singing or watching a show. Whether you've never sung outside of your head or are comfortable belting out of tune in public, this course is a MUST do. " -  Wendy King
Join experienced musical improviser Brenna Dixon in this beginner workshop for musical improvisation and learn the fundamental skills necessary to create songs on the spot.
