About the Workshop:
Musical Improv can be charming, beautiful and entertaining, but sometimes you gotta give it that OOMPH! Rapping the bridge of your song is an amazing opportunity to surprise the audience, get some sweet rhymes in, and go deeper into your character's deepest fears, motives, and philosophies. This workshop will also contain exercises that will demystify what to sing about in your verses, so that your songs can contain a focused message.
