A whole new way to do song improv; it's like karaoke, but you'll learn how to make up your very own song!
NOTES
Created by Laura Hall, pianist on the popular television show, "Whose Line is it Anyway", Improv Karaoke is a two cd set especially designed for people who want to learn how to do song improv.

Disc 1 starts with a general tutorial that gives an overview of song improv, with lots of tips and pointers. Then you’ll hear a demo version of each track, improvised by people like Keegan-Michael Key, Dan Castellaneta and Kathy Kinney, based on suggestions they’ve gotten on the spot.

Disc 2 has all the same tracks, but without any talking or demos. It’s just like karaoke, except you get to make up your own, original songs, on the fly. This is your chance to jump in and give song improv a try!

Improv Karaoke is a perfect tool for theater and improv classes; as a way for improv groups to practice when they don’t have a live musician; for improv performances; or just for fun at a party, camp or special event. You can host an Improv Karaoke Night at a bar or club, and have teams compete. You can even use the tracks to make up your own song for a special event like an anniversary or birthday.

Even if you’ve been scared to try song improv, Improv Karaoke will get you started and having fun. And if you’re an old hand, you can use the cd to sharpen your skills and try it with your friends. Improv Karaoke is a whole new way to do song improv!
