Improvisation for All!
Join jazz vocalist, improviser, and songwriter Andrea Wolper for a group singing workshop (not just for singers!). Andrea will lead you through vocal games and improvisation exercises that help you tap into your own creativity. You'll improve your ability to hear pitches and feel rhythms, sing from a place of relaxation, and find yourself improvising almost immediately. Bring an open mind and a willingness to try new things at this fun, friendly, supportive workshop. People at all levels of experience are welcome. Whether you're a working musician, a music lover, or simply curious--join us! Here's what past participants in Andrea's workshop have said: "This was the best fun I've had in ages! Laughs, learning and singing all rolled into one!” “Andrea is a wonderful leader/teacher. She has a warm, gentle manner and the skill to help each group member find a closer relationship to the music -- while also nourishing a strong group spirit. The workshop was challenging and supportive (without pressure for us tentative types)--and a lot of fun.” www.andreawolper.com/teaching
"Andrea Wolper’s musical and interpersonal skills are immense and I highly recommend her workshops. I make my living as a music educator and I’ve discovered that one of the biggest challenges is teaching a group of people who have different skill-sets and different expectations. My daughter and I signed up to do a Vocal Workshop with Andrea and having known her as a friend and colleague for over 10 years, I had no doubt that she would be nurturing, engaging and full of insight and useful information. All of this was predictably true. However, I was particularly impressed (and, I will admit, pleasantly surprised) by how gracefully she managed to juggle such disparate needs. The participants were varied in terms of experience, confidence, goals and musical literacy, yet Andrea managed to accommodate everybody without any perceptible compromise while creating a genuine and lovely sense of community." - NB, pianist, educator
