Or...HOW THE SINGER-SONGWRITER BECOMES A SUCCESSFUL ARTIST.
Signature Songs communicate your unique vision, message, and identity as an artist to the world. You need clarity of purpose to craft them memorably. Precision of intent to record them artistically. And an intimate understanding of self, material, and performance to showcase them powerfully.
In this eight week Artist Development program, singer, songwriter, and vocal coach BOB GARRETT explores all the aspects of how to turn your singer-songwriting talents into a successful recording and performance career.

As Instructor Bob Garrett notes, "All decisions that you make in your career as a singer-songwriter need to live “under an umbrella” of how you wish the world to see you, so your creative and business decisions are all made with one vision. Once you have that vision, while it may change as your career progresses, your focus as an artist becomes clear and your in-studio and onstage performances will direct and catapult you to the artist status you so richly deserve."
