Deke Sharon A capella Improvisation Workshop


Vocal music isn’t all about arrangements and vocal parts; Most world cultures have a tradition of a cappella singing that relies on nothing but your ear and your voice. In this workshop you’ll learn the fundamentals of improvising pop songs, how to sing a “circle song,” and how to improvise a piece of music without any rules or boundaries.

We’ll be taking a few tunes you know and making them something really special with some improvised moments created by participants on the day. There is nothing like being part of a massed choir singing your heart out with new ideas you’ve just created. Come join us!
