In an effort to do our part in protecting our community and flattening the curve of infection, The Songwriting School successfully moved all previously active classes online on Wednesday 3/11/20. With the mix of video conferencing technology and the magnificent and adaptive student and instructor community, we have not missed a beat. We are excited to welcome you or welcome you back, virtually, for classes!
WINTER 2021 classes will all meet ONLINE only. These classes will be fully interactive--with both real-time interaction with your instructor and classmates AND on-demand archives of each class for your access, on your own schedule. There will be no in-person classes meeting this Fall. We are following all state and local guidance as we consider our Winter/Spring programming.
Recording studio use is available in certain situations, strictly observing all LA County COVID-19 protocols. Please inquire with details about your project by calling 818-848-7664. Or email us here.
In addition, there are also online classes that are on-demand only. In other words, if you want to study on your own time and do not want to attend interactive sessions, you are welcome to learn in this self-paced manner. These classes also have opportunities to get questions answered and receive feedback from your instructor.
Questions? Want help picking the right class? Need to discuss tuition arrangements in these trying times? CONTACT US HERE or call 818-848-7664.
The Songwriting School continues to follow the COVID-19 (novel Coronavirus) developments closely and seeks to make decisions that protect our community, foster creative growth, and acknowledge our responsibilities to the larger community in this pandemic. We seek to create an environment that is safe and comfortable for you while you work at this important pursuit of your artistic development.
Please stay safe and look out for each other. At times like this your music might seem insignificant in the face of hardship. But in the face of hardship, your music might be just what the rest of us need. Here's to you. Thank you for your important part in making this creative community of The Songwriting School the positive and resilient one it has been for the past eleven-plus years.
