If you've seen TBD: the Improvised Musical, or any of the other musical improv comedy around Columbus or on shows like "Whose Line is it Anyway?", you've seen that magic often happens when music and improv collide. On-the-spot stories and emotions brought to life with music add an element to a performance that audiences and performers alike, love. 

In Improvised Musical Level One, students will begin learning the specific show structure and format of TBD: the Improvised Musical, as well as continue to build upon their musical improv skills. Exercises and lessons include: 

+Continuing work on improvising music, creating rhymes and building strong melodies and choruses in the moment
+Creating characters and understanding their roles in the musical as a whole (e.g. protagonist, antagonist, comedic support, authority figure)
+Introduction to story structure, story arcs and how these principles build and support this longform musical
+How to harness the power of group numbers, "I Want" songs and duets
+How to create rich harmonies, in the moment

...and more!
