MUS 295 - Special Topics in Music

No previous musical training or experience in improvisation is necessary for this class in improvisation.  All you need to bring to class is the willingness to sing or play, and to listen and comment respectfully.

Students will learn to improvise through experience:  playing, singing, and actively listening.  There will be a minimum of discussion.  The goal is to learn natural self expression and creativity using spontaneous music making in solo, small ensemble and whole group settings.

We hope by class's end you will solo boldly, support sensitivity, make constructive contributions through silence, and develop a repertoire of contrasting sounds and styles.

Credits: 1-3
1-3 Class Hours; 1-3 Laboratory Hours
