Testimonials

This kind of material and skill needs to be well TAUGHT. The instructors were excellent teachers and mentors. They are very passionate about the craft - and are extremely knowledgeable as well as experienced. But they also are very good at articulating the lessons and passing along that wisdom so we can learn... The course was an excellent mix of discussion as well as hands-on training. The instructors also set an exceptional tone for our classroom and created an environment that was motivating and optimal for learning. Great job!

It was the perfect combination of knowledge and experience. The course was very well planned out, and never did it feel like we were going too slow or too fast.

Kristina Korban

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.

It’s a great school and have great teachers. Some schools care only about fancy gear in the classroom and forget about the essential: the teachers!
