Our Testimonials

My songs that were already finished were improved significantly, when I didn't think there was much room to improve. My writing ability and originality also increased. Casey is patient, but also honest, and it's exactly what I needed to get my music to another level. She was always open to hear original songs and give feedback, and was very good with answering questions even if they were asked more than once. If I could take the course myself again I totally would.

Evan Frazer

Learned about song structure theoretically, but also about how to implement it. We saw what a songwriting session looks like, and how to get past obstacles that are common to those types of creative marathons.

Michael Wiener

I would recommend this course to my friends that love music and creating their own songs. I definitely have learnt so much and loved everything about it.
