A couple of months ago I heard about an online course for musicians that one of my songwriting heroes, Derek Webb, was starting. It’s calledMiddle Class Musician. Quite honestly, it’s the first advertisement that didn’t promise things to me that were out of touch. Instead, the course has given me a deep dive into being a true artist. Not just from the promotion side but also from the songwriting side.
There are are many voices out there that will tell you to stick to one style and seize your niche and make bank. Well, that’s not me. I’m influenced by many different styles of music. And while I stay pretty close to the folk-pop-rock genre I like to experiment….a lot. I want to always be true to myself when writing songs.
Since being a part of Middle Class Musician I’ve started writing more lyrics and playing around more with my music. If you’re a musician you should definitely consider taking this course. It will change how you pursue your art and help you to learn how to connect with your fans.
