OKC Improv Workshop: Let's Sing about It! (Musical Workshop with Kyle Gossett)
Have a song in your heart? Ever wanted to just burst out in song in a scene, or in life? This workshop is for you! Improvisers, actors, singers, musicians, and curious citizens are welcome to take this course designed to teach the basics of musical improvisation. Students will learn song structure, rhyme scheme, and general musicality, all with the goal of learning how to boil a scene down to its "critical mass," or the point where a character can no longer speak, so they must sing. Every character has a point of view and a song they can sing, and this workshop is designed to find just that!
Prerequisites: Level 1 or permission from the instructor
