THE OWN YOUR VOICE
The Own Your Voice Academy is an extension of our private coaching studio! At the academy, we specialize in teaching professional, collaborative music masterclasses, workshops, and intensives covering topics such as songwriting, recording, music technology, stylistic technique, and more!
SUMMER '23 - SONGWRITING INTENSIVE
*This is a multi-week class, offered once a week, for a total of 4-5 classes.
Interested in learning how to write your own songs, but don't know where to begin? Let us help!
In this in-depth course, you'll learn the ins and outs of the songwriting process, i.e. lyric creation, song form and rhyme schemes, AND you'll dive into creating your own backing tracks, as we explore GarageBand!
You'll also have the opportunity to experience collaborative writing, through guided, writer's round sessions. This class is taught workshop-style, and offers weekly writing challenges (individual + collaborative), music technology projects, professional mentorship and more.
This course is open to beginning + intermediate songwriters, aged 13+
POP-UP CLASS - SIP AND STRUM
*This is a pop-up course, offered at various times throughout the year -
be sure to join the waitlist to be notified when the next class is scheduled!
Come enjoy coffee while learning to play ukulele! No experience? No problem! Absolutely no prior experience is required; in fact, many students that attend our sip and strum courses have never played an instrument before.
These sessions are laid-back lessons, teaching the basics of navigating your instrument. Enjoy meeting your community while learning basic theory, beginning chords, simple strum patterns, and the techniques needed to play songs like "Three Little Birds" by Bob Marley, "I'm Yours" by Jason Mraz, "Let It Be" by The Beatles, and more classics!
This course is open to students aged 13+; parents of students enrolled are welcome to join this class as well, and learn along with their child!
*Instruments may be provided upon request, but inventory is limited, so instruments are offered on a first come first serve basis.
My life is centered around all things music, teaching and community, and my passion is finding creative ways to bring all three of those things together. Thus, OYV was created as a professional resource for today's musicians to explore their gifts, while being immersed in a supportive community of like-minded creatives!
