A Pianist’s Guide to Improvisation Workshop
Admission: $12/$10 students
Pianist Robert Hitz leads a workshop geared to professional musicians and students interested in techniques of free improvisation and in teaching improvisation.
Have you ever wanted to be able to improvise but felt blocked? In this workshop we’ll share techniques that can help get you started. It’s fun, easy and incredibly liberating.
In this workshop we will
* Explore your personal style of music making and how improvisation enhances the total musician.
* Learn techniques and forms that allow you to get started and lead others.
* Explore improvisation in many styles – not only jazz-oriented.
* Solo and ensemble sessions.
Improvisation opens your personal creativity in a way that playing written music does not, so give yourself the gift of exploring your own musical voice.
Open to beginners and accomplished players of any instrument. Bring your instrument, an open mind, and the possibilities are endless!
