ITS Musical Improv Jams

These sessions are an opportunity for musical improvisers to jam scenes, meet other players and pick up a few fun games and exercises to keep the voice and mind warm!

Please note: These jams are for intermediate/advanced improvisers who have musical improv experience. For beginning musical improvisers, watch this space! There will be a more in-depth course offered for beginners soon.
