Do you have a song you just can’t finish? The song is missing something but you just can’t put your finger on it. Do you need an outside set of ears to provide unbiased feedback? Do you need to improve your lyrics? Do you need pre-production assistance before you go into the studio to ensure success in the studio?
This program comprises 5 days. Five hours per day, one day per week for five weeks. This gives artists ample time to ingest what the coaches have suggested, it allows you to practice, and implement what you’ve learned.
At the kick off participants meet the crew and the coaches. We lay down the ground rules, talk shop and answer questions. At the kick off we get right to setting up your agenda for the next five weeks. We talk about your goals, focus one what’s important and set priorities. We must target what’s most crucial and discover what will get you to the milestones you need to hit.
Song and/or Stage Craft Performance Analysis
The first rehearsal is spent fine tuning your agenda for the next five weeks. You may want to focus on one song you think will be your single, and still needs work, along with pro level feedback. You might be preparing for an upcoming showcase, or you could be in preproduction for an EP release. Coaches will assist in creating your agenda, and tailoring the next five weeks to ensure maximum benefit and maximum payoff.
Intensive Live Workshop
Week three is the first Live Show Workshop where the bands play live on stage and receive coaching in an open group format. It’s a safe environment, it’s forgiving, and it gives bands the chance to safely review stage craft, dynamics, test new songs in a live environment. It’s a great opportunity to watch other bands, listen to feedback other bands receive, and it’s great opportunity network with new musicians, and industry professionals. Bands use these events to meet other musicians and cement relationships with industry contacts.We also use this Live Venue time to bring in professionals from the business side of the industry. These include Lawyers, Accountants, Public Relations people, label and publishing representatives, and more.
Song and/or Stage Craft Workshop
Week four is back at the Rehearsal Studio working through the feedback received from coaches in the previous Live Workshop, and working toward your final live workshop.

Week five is your final Live Performance. This time you receive coaching in a community setting from the front of the stage with a panel of feature coaches and this session is recorded live off the stage.
