Classes & Workshops

Community of Sound is dedicated to artistic development. We feel that sharing skills with the greater community will help develop an audience for creative music experiences as well.

So we teach. 🙂

All classes & workshops, like every event at CoS, adhere to our Code of Conduct. Our teaching philosophies focus on hands-on work and encouraging the development of a personalized sound. All skill levels and experience are welcome to all of our classes and workshops.

Free-Improvisation Research Ensemble

2nd/4th Tuesday of the Month 8pm-9pm 

The Free Improvisation Research Orchestra is a new ensemble for musicians who are actively exploring the creative practices of improvisation from scholarly, embodied, and practice-based perspectives.

Some of our time together will be spent working directly on the craft of improvisation. Some of our time together will be spent presenting research into the creative practices of other musicians, ensembles, & collectives.

The group has no pre-requisites other than a willingness to create
a supportive, diverse, and rigorous musical climate. Existing backgrounds in jazz, classical, rock, electronic, folk, or any genre or no genre is welcome.

Meetings of this group happen every other Tuesday from 8pm-10pm at 4 Howard, Studio i3. Donations are welcome to help offset the cost of the rehearsal space but no one turned away for lack of funds.
