This face...

happy musician.gif

This is why we play music. 

Because we want to make this face.

We want to feel things, like…

  • The JOY of making beautiful music

  • The EASE that comes with having well-trained fingers

  • The RELEASE that comes from expressing yourself through music

 

Unfortunately... most music lessons for adult amateurs are more likely to have you making this face instead…

Most music teachers will assign scales, etudes, and repertoire to ALL their students, just like they would to classical music majors looking to perform professionally.  Of COURSE they do!  It’s the only thing they know!

 

This makes their adult students’ progress…

  • Slow

  • Boring

  • Oh, and did I say BORING!?

But not me...

I've gone rogue.

I think that adult students who want to play just for the sheer joy of making music deserve special treatment and their own unique curriculum designed to maximize FUN while still developing valuable musical skills.

 

All so YOU can make that face.  

 

And I mean the good face, not the one where you bang your head against a piano… Just to be clear :) 

In my course, SongFoolery: Success Through Shenanigans, I teach you just enough music theory so you can have a TON of fun playing your instrument, but not so much music theory that your eyes dry up and your love of music shrivels.

 

AND we learn it all in the absolute FUNNEST way possible.

 

Think of it as being a bit like school, but only with your favorite teacher, AND half of the day is recess!

We learn real, full-on music theory concepts that will allow you to jam with friends, improvise, cover your favorite songs, and even record your own album.  

 

And we have so much fun, you won’t realize you’re doing “the hard stuff,” because it won’t feel hard!

 

When you sign up for the course, here’s EXACTLY what you’ll get…

  • 24 LIVE classes with me and your fellow musicians!

  • 48 RECORDED mini lessons and playlists to help develop your aural repertoire that you can do any time, anywhere!

  • 24 IN-PERSON Office Hours for you to get feedback and answers to all your questions!

  • Weekly VIDEO FEEDBACK for anyone who wants extra tips or can't make the live calls!

  • TONS of recorded elements you can jam with AND use to make your own musical projects!  Don’t worry!  I’ll show you how :) 

  • SO many printables, practice plans, and cheat sheets to help you apply what you've learned that I lost count!

Everyone gets print-a-bles!

Seriously... there are SO MANY printables that even I don’t know how many there will be by the time the class is over.  That’s because I make new ones as we go along when my students have questions or genius ideas!
