COME AS OUR GUEST FOR CLASS 1. YOU MAY STILL ENROLL IN THE 8-MEETING CLASS.
The Professional Singer-Songwriter class will consist of an advanced songwriting and career curriculum aimed specifically at the performing singer-songwriter. Class will help you refine your unique style with regard to the function of melodies, harmony & arranging, the power of a hit chorus, and the importance of production and how it best captures the song. We will take an in depth look at touring, branding, promotion and more through the presentation of original music. In this hands-on course, students will learn not only how to write a powerful, stylized composition, but how to arrange it into a complete body of work, create albums and promote shows as well. Throughout the 8 meetings (7 weekly, 1 outside lab IN THE PROFESSIONAL RECORDING STUDIO) and leading up to the final performance, students will be challenged and inspired to break through their musical barriers to develop their talents as songwriters, storytellers, and touring artists.
Taught by Nikhil Korula, who wrote the single for the Grammy-winning Reggae Album of the Year for Ziggy Marley, and as a DIY, self-managed, and self-booking artist, has played prestigious festivals like Arroyo Seco in 2017, Bonnaroo, Summerfest (annually), and the Playboy Jazz Festival, and has opened for artists like Dave Matthews Band, Jason Mraz, John Mayer, The Roots, Erykah Badu, Ben Harper, Ray Lamontagne, Gavin Degraw, and Gary Clark, Jr.
