Music Lab: Improvisational Music Workshop for all Instruments (MPF2166.01)

William Parker

The Music Lab: Improvisational Music Workshop for all Instruments is a guided improvisation class allowing students to play music without knowing what will happen e.g. from silence to sound to silence. Repeating this process allows one to learn how to play in real time in the moment while responding to sound and environment without thinking. The goal through this process is for students to learn how to trust the intuitive self by practicing to step into the sonic unknown. Making the transition from being comfortable with information to being comfortable with imagination, without being locked down to a style, will allow students to tap into the music that is inside of them.

No audition is required, but playing an instrument is necessary.
