Advanced Musical Improv: Melodic Risk with Jaime Hazan
Getting your musical reward by taking "melodic risk"
Melodic Risk a 3- hour workshop that encourages the singer/improviser to try out new melodies that haven’t been sung before, ever, combined with not-so-typical beat structures to bring originality and uniqueness to your performances. For some players, there is a “safe character” we revert to when a stressful situation arises on stage. For some musical improvisers, there is a “safe song” or a “safe melody” that given the chance will sneak into our work if not kept at bay. Learning to take measured Melodic Risks can be used as a tool to combat the mundane, and give your performances a truly original edge. Come ready to join a supportive and accepting environment where teamwork is encouraged.
