Past Event
About Event

Hey friends! Curious about musical improv? Learn to create new songs instantly. Join us for a night of on-the-spot song crafting. It doesn't matter if you've ever sung a note, or you're someone who's never picked up an instrument before—everyone is welcome.

It's the perfect introduction before you join in the fun and try your hand at musical improv through improv games!


In the workshop: we'll delve into the fundamentals of musical improv, learning common song structures such as verse-chorus songs or tagline songs. It's your turn to jump in and give musical improv games a try!

An Improvised Musical: we'll take a break with a live demonstration of a fully improvised musical. You'll see improvised songs in action with a showcase led by a team of dedicated learners and performers just like you. From spontaneous melodies to quick-witted lyrics, you'll see a musical story unfold before your eyes.

Know an improv warm-up or exercise? Let us know in advance and you can run that! We're also seeking your requests and ideas. See the chat links below to join our Whatsapp group.

Musical improv is the creation of songs in real-time including lyrics, and melodies on the spot, blending music, improv comedy, and storytelling with quick wit and creativity.

We'll all learn how to play a variety of improv and musical improv games!

  • At this meet-up, you'll learn to create brand-new songs instantly, whether you're an improv veteran or stepping into the musical improv scene for the first time.

  • Instant musical creation with the help of our supportive community: you'll have the chance to find your musical voice and have fun with music in a safe and welcoming environment.

  • We tailor each session to the group: novice and expert music background or improv experiences welcome. Line by line, let’s build spontaneous songs in the moment at the speed of fun.

It's the perfect blend—challenging enough for the pros, yet welcoming for beginners. We're all about creating an inclusive space where everyone, regardless of experience, can contribute to the symphony of creativity.

Join this community of musical improvisers who loves nothing more than sharing our love of music and improv comedy with others.

This meetup is free!
