Musical Direction for Improv Comedy
June 29 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm$50
Stomping Ground is looking to add to its team of paid musical directors for house teams and musical improv shows and we’re giving you an opportunity to learn from one of the top Improv Musical Directors in the country. This workshop will focus on musical direction for improvisational comedy, including underscoring, supporting and understanding scenes, providing accompaniment for improvised song, and more! There will be a keyboard used for this workshop but those interested are also encouraged to utilize other instruments (such as guitar) and are encouraged to bring their own. Limited scholarships available- please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
Must be 18 or Older to Purchase or Attend Class. All sales are final. Refunds are not available on classes but we are happy to shift your registration to a future class. Stomping Ground Students get free admission to all shows while enrolled in classes.
