The program is offered as either a 1 day/single class session, a 2 day back to back workshop or a full week + residency. You may choose any of the options below to fit your school scheduling and particular student needs.
Option A: 'Demo in a Day'
This is an ideal introductory session for a single class interested in learning about songwriting and recording i.e.. K-6 students. Max # students - single class size
The Day involves 2 - 45 min writing sessions in the morning followed by an hour recording session in the pm and a 20 min. mix presentation of the final guitar/vocal demo at the end of the day. The session times are to fit class timetables.
Fee $ 250.
Option B: 'Back to Back 2 Day'
A more intense approach to developing a song and tracking it with a small group of highly motivated students. The students are involved for two full days.
Max. # of students - 12. Well suited for Middle years and senior years students with specific interests in writing, performing and audio engineering.
Fee $ 450.
Option C ' Full Week Workshop'
This option is a good way to either involve 5 separate classes (1 per day) or a smaller specific group of students that works through a writing and recording process to a finished mix! Any arrangement of Option A and B can also be assembled over the 5 day residency. For example, Monday through Wednesday might see 3 classes followed by a two day intense worksop for a smaller group of highly interested students. This is a great way to involve a large portion of the students body as well as those who possess a high degree of interest in some aspect of the writing and recording process. * Multiple weeks can be booked in the same school over the course of the year*
