What is vocal improvisation?

Vocal improvisation is the creative activity of creating vocal music in the moment, such as scat singing or other wordless sounds, an activity practiced in many cultures around the world, and made popular by Bobby McFerrin’s Voicestra.

Renee Benmeleh, your supportive and joyful vocal journey guide invites you to join us in the age-old practice of singing as a group. Renée leads with vocal and movement games, improvised melodies and rhythms, and allows space for your unique and authentic expression, in an accepting and loving environment to explore your potential to sing and express your authentic emotions, sounds and movements.

Renée was first exposed to vocal improvisation at Mills College with Molly Holm ( in the Flux Vocal Jazz Improvisation Ensemble. Since then she has continued to study voice/composition and perform vocal improvisation with Molly and others at a variety of events in the Bay Area.
