The theme for April is Storytelling through song.
Know an improv warm-up or exercise? Let us know and you can run that! We're also looking for requests, ideas, and co-organizers.
Hey friends! Time to sing! Let's create new songs instantly. For first-timers, we'll learn how and for returners we'll also practice a few new musical improv ideas to keep this month fresh.
We'll also play a variety of musical improv games!
- At this meet-up, you'll learn to create brand-new songs instantly, and you don't need any musical background or improv experience to participate. Just come ready to have a blast and let your creativity flow.
- Instant musical creation—it's all happening now! With the help of our talented team and a supportive community, you'll have the chance to find your musical voice and have fun with music in a safe and welcoming environment.
- No music background or improv experience is necessary. Line by line, let’s build songs in the moment at the speed of fun. Experience the thrill of spontaneous songs!
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.
And if you're already a song maker, this is your chance to shine, sharpen your skills, and find community. This is also a community of musical improvisers who love nothing more than sharing our love of music and comedy with others.
This meetup is free!

We're always gathering ideas for your personal goals as we learn how to co-create this group together, and – if anyone is interested – plan a public musical improv showcase or party for friends and family. Please post on the discussion board, chat, or message us if you have initial thoughts. It's all in the early brainstorming phase.
