Exploration of new instruments to enrich one's musical vocabulary in vocal improvisation, while developing one's rhythmic, melodic and harmonic skills in a "joyful" way.

In particular, the master class will focus on the follow skills and competences:
– incorporate rhythmic, melodic and harmonic diversity into singing;
– find new ways to develop a musical motif during solos;
– increase the accuracy and precision during improvisation on a circle song.
