Strengthen your connection to yourself as a creative artist & improvisor in this workshop.

Registration: DSA: $15, non-DSA: $20, Student: $10 (Pre-registration required.)

NY Dalcroze is excited to present an online Improvisation workshop to help us refresh and revive our musicality in that most Dalcrozian of subjects: Improvisation.

“During this session we’ll both improvise and listen to ourselves improvising. As we play, we’ll explore the difference between improvising and practicing improvisation. We’ll work with our spontaneous reactions to what we hear, think and feel when we improvise and when we hear ourselves improvising. We’ll talk about ways to sustain this practice beyond this workshop (how does 5 minutes a day sound?) with a goal of strengthening your connection to yourself as a creative artist, whether you are in the classroom or on the concert stage.

“Nervous about improvising in front of other people? Not a problem. Sound will be turned off as you improvise while I guide you through the process. We’ll come together as a group to share experiences and gain inspiration from each other.”

– Michael Joviala, Diplôme Supérieur
