I am offering a brand-spanking new LIVE online composition course for just 15 participants. It’s called “Compose Yourself: A Songwriting Workshop for Everyone” and you’ll make at least 10 songs in 10 weeks and be a part of a small, supportive community of amazing humans sharing their voices. The class will meet online once a week for 90 minutes and will consist in training, methods, encouragement, constructive feedback and community. And best of all: you don’t have to leave the comfort of your home.
