Become Your Own Composer
Got questions? We've got answers!
Q: What dates/times is this course, anyway???
A: It’s a hybrid course, with a mixture of self-paced videos and live online group coaching.
- The group coaching is bi-weekly on Wednesday evenings at 7 pm ET (till 9 pm…give or take! I’ll stay longer if there are more questions!). Group coaching begins on Wednesday, 9/5! 4 months are included, with an extra 2 months included if you take advantage of the early bird offer and sign up by 8/15.
- Videos and exercises are self-paced, and will be added weekly on Fridays. The course will launch on 9/5, with the first videos and exercises added that day!
Q: What kind of exercises are we talking about here?
A: A combination of written worksheets to help you learn musical notation and concepts, piano exercises to get you comfortable with the keyboard, and creative assignments including writing short musical pieces. We’ll also be working throughout the course on your own AABA form song, and by the end you should be able to complete a full lead sheet for this song!
Q: I don’t own a piano or keyboard! Do I need to get a big fancy keyboard for this course?
A: You should get one! It’s going to be super useful. But you don’t need an expensive one. 61 keys, 76 keys, or 88 keys are all fine.
Q: I’m still learning about writing lyrics. Do I need to be solid with lyric writing before taking this class?
A: This class will largely focus on the musical side of things, but will include some guidance on lyric writing as well, to help you complete your AABA song!
