We are not a 2- or 4-year college and do not confer a degree, but we do have certificate programs for those who value them. We believe the only piece of paper that truly makes you a songwriter is one with the © beside your name, or the royalty statement rightfully addressed to you. We provide innovative, real-world, timely, powerful courses, events, and training designed to inspire, instruct, & empower you to do work of meaning and value.
