Sing with Family...
When I suspended the Voiceweaving Meetup site this month I decided to share posts here for my fellow Voiceweavers. The song below was created in 2016 with my friend, Izetta Smith, with whom I've been singing since 1971.
It has been a remarkable experience to maintain a musical relationship for almost 50 years with Izetta; we first sang together in Portland's legendary Storefront Theater. Through the years we've made time to come together and play - for that is what improvisation is at its heart - musical play through which we continue to learn and discover.
As we navigate this period of social isolation I encourage you to sing, play and explore at home - by yourself or with your partners, housemates and children. Here's a simple partner game to begin your improvisational journey. If you click the card below, you can listen to an audio sample of this game.
