In this 8 week class, experienced improvisers will dive into the multi-layered world of musical improv! Instructor Keith Munslow will break down how to create a song on the spot in a relaxed and supportive environment, and build musical scenes that use core improv elements combined with vocal and song-writing techniques. We’ll learn various song starts, finding choruses, sideline singing, group songs, and how to build arrangements on-the-fly. Prior improv experience is required, please email email@example.com for further details. No singing ability/music knowledge required (seriously)! Even if you don’t think of yourself as a *singer*, but love to sing, this class is for you. Students will perform in their very own musical showcase at the end of the 8 week course.
This course runs for 8 weeks, and each class is 3 hours long.
Please be advised this class will include some light to moderate physical activity.

Wage House offers improv classes and workshops year round. Our instructors care about giving you actual skills you can use on stage. Our improv philosophy is centered around ‘not improv-ing past your improv’. What’s that mean?…well it means we will teach you to hold on to what you create at the top of your improv scene and you’ll be able to use to for inspiration for the rest. Oh, and, improv is useful in tons of ways besides the theater! People learn improv for public speaking, communication skills, building teamwork, and just for Fun! Basically you should take an improv class. Improv is growing in Rhode Island and Wage House is excited to be apart of your improv experience. Our theater is located in Pawtucket, which is very close to Providence and the East-side! Check back often to see what’s new!!
