Created by Kareen Williams - Personal Transformation Coach

Students: 1589, Price:  Paid

Do you want to be a Forgettable or Unforgettable Music Artist .....?

Then you must Discover the Power of Branding! 

If you are a Music Artist with a Creative Vision for your career, then you need to create a psychological bond with your Audience. Only then, will they remember you after they have hit PLAY and experienced your music.

In this course, we will unlock what makes you MEMORABLE. Every Artist has something about them that pulls people in. But, many artists do not know how to discover it.

Many people think BRANDING is about choosing colors and logos and photos, but it is so much better than that! Branding is about standing out! Branding is about creating a Legendary Career.

Imagine that you have an audience that:

  • wears your merchandise

  • buys tickets to your live shows

  • knows all the lyrics to your songs

  • streams your music as soon as it is released

  • shares your music with your friends

  • defends you against your haters

You may be thinking "Well of course, but it seems to good to be true." The truth is, Branding is the easiest way to reach your Music Career dreams! The secret is about creating a Culture around your music.

And while there are many courses out there that will charge you $$$$ to learn this magic. This course will present you with the concepts and with Assignments and activities to get you there, and the price is so much more affordable.

But, if you still do not think the course is beneficial, then you can simply get a refund after 30 days of purchasing! 

In this course, you will walk away with:

  1. A Blueprint to continue to develop your Artist Brand

  2. Ideas on how to DEFINE your Artist Look

  3. A plan to Seduce your Audience

  4. A social media content Strategy that supports your Branding

If you have ever been an Artist that has hustled with every social media hustle, you must learn that not every Social Media Strategy is created equal in the Laws of Branding.

This means that while certain strategies will work for other Artists, they may not work for you. This will be clarified once you create and build your brand image and execute your seduction strategy. You will know exactly what social media strategy is best for you and which is not.


You have 3 options.

Option 1: You can bypass this course. Purchase another course that will teach you the same regurgitated information.

Option 2: You can keep marketing your music in an non effective way.

Option 3: Take the course, learn the best music marketing branding strategy for you

JOIN the Community and grow your fans, followers and subscribers before its too late and the secret is out!

Stay Motivated While Learning Music Online

Created by Micah Blake - Creator, Writer, and Speaker


Students: 1585, Price: $94.99

Students: 1585, Price:  Paid

We have all been here before. We started learning something new in music and somewhere along the way stopped. This can be for really small reasons like; Going on vacation, Having a shift change, getting a cold, having a friend stay over for the weekend. Those little breaks in schedule can get us off the groove and many people never pick it up again. In this course we go over some reasons people often stop practicing and how to fix them. We use an 8 step method to ensure you are seeing growth in your music.

Here are four reasons people quit that actually have some weight to them, but we can fix it.

  1. We forget

  • Hard to remember

  • Building habits is not everyone’s strong point

  • Won’t happen overnight (takes different amounts of time)

  • Habits take time to form (possibly anywhere from 18-66 days)

  • Later on we are going to look at physically change our lives( caution you might have to step away from the internet and do something. So you can practice everyday)

  • It’s to expensive

  • I’ve been on both sides as teacher and student

  • Stopped my lessons but not learning

  • I will show you how to get what you need out of online courses so you can save a ton on your education and then how to pay yourself since you are in part teaching yourself

  1. The ups and downs are discouraging

  • Life is up and down

  • This is a problem for all performers not just people learning music

  • One sure thing in our life is we will have some chaos from time to time

  • Use your practice to moderate the impact of external things in our life

    4. No accountability or are we just plain lazy?

  • You don’t necessarily need someone to pick up the slack

  • Take Frickin Responsibility

    • Does your mom still call you to make sure you brushed your teeth and washed behind your ears?

  • Our subconsious naturally runs away from pain with more effort than it runs towards pleasure

    • If you think this is going to be painful practicing then your subconscious will sabotage you.

  • Turn your practice as something that isn’t “harm” We should start viewing Missing our practice as hurting us

What do we need to do then?

  • What do you need to do to stop failing at your online lessons and get what you need to out of them?

  • We learn different but these few things will help streamline your process

  • 8 steps  (CGPRABSN Acronym)

  • This time you will be able to keep it up if you work along with this class

    • 1 Consistency

    • 2Goals

    • 3 Plan

    • 4 record your practice ( 2 ways)

    • 5 Affirmations

    • 6 Benefits (including financial)

    • 7 Share

    • 8 New Goals

Working through these goals will COMPLETELY  change your practice and could also change your life.

This is dealing specifically with music but if you apply this technique to other parts of your life too the possibilities are endless.

    And here's my no questions asked money back guarantee.

Students: 1266, Price:  Paid

Learn how to repair guitars today, by training as a Guitar Repair Technician.

Module 1, Maintaining Your Guitar, is the first of the Guitar Repair Technician series that opens the way for you to affordably and conveniently learn how to maintain electric and acoustic guitars and basses. With this 'entry level' module, you'll learn how to effectively carry out full, professional maintenance tasks on your own and customer guitars.

Follow step by step with videos, downloads, quizzes and tasks.  Ask questions.  Repeat the course as many times as necessary.

Once you’ve completed this module, you’ll be ready to confidently and effectively tackle many of the common guitar maintenance tasks asked for by customers, and you’ll also save a fortune being able to work on your own instrument.  

Once finished, you'll be ready for the next of several modules available for you.

Learner reviews:

"Great course!"

"The instructor's explanations are detailed, demonstrating knowledge and excellence in the art of 'Luthieria'."

"Yes! Thanks Kevin!"

"It's good for beginner, he explains well everything"

"A most enjoyable course. I learned something new in each module. In those where I had no experience with the topic at all, things were explained clearly and made simple. Very easy to follow along."

"An informative and enjoyable course filled with valuable hands-on examples of proper guitar maintenance practices. Great for both beginners and more advanced guitar enthusiasts willing to learn how to take care of their instrument without spending a fortune on taking it to the luthier."

"Very detailed instructions, the instructor is very knowledgable and concise.  I would highly recommend this course, can't wait for the next course."

"It was a very solid back grounding and I will be looking for a more advanced course now and an opportunity to work on some instruments."

"This course was exactly what I wanted. I was looking into guitar building but over time realised it wasn't what I wanted. I was more interested in how guitars work and how to repair and maintain them. This was perfect and easy to follow."

"The course is very informative, entertaining and the guy is pretty funny. Watching on mobile and so far it’s pretty easy to use. No hacks required."

The award-winning Guitar Repair Technician training program has been a preferred choice within the Wales Employability Sector for guitar repair training (electric, bass, acoustic, classical), and was entered onto the Careers Wales database of approved courses in 2013.  

The problem for many, however, was access to the guitar repair workshops i.e. many people simply were unable to attend workshops  to learn how to repair electric guitars and other types due to time constraints, geographic location and transportation.  

The solution:  The Guitar Repair Technician training program is now available here through Udemy’s online learning platform for you to learn how to fix your own guitar and customer guitars in your own time, and without needing to leave home.  


This module focuses on specific maintenance jobs that a Guitar Repair Technician might experience, whether you’re working in the Guitar and Music industry, following a hobby or simply maintaining your own guitar to keep it in great shape.

Other Guitar Repair training courses are expensive, long and often not easily accessible. This module (selected as a UK government approved training course) would cost in excess of £250 per day - here through Udemy, you now save a fortune!

Romantic Music: Composition & Production

Create the Perfect Gift / Compose a Romantic Soundtrack

Created by Jonathan Armandary - Award-Winning Film Music Composer


Students: 1225, Price: $94.99

Students: 1225, Price:  Paid

My wife and I got married in a truly unique venue, deep underground in the Polish salt mines. We needed some seriously special music - not the usual “off the shelf” stuff. So, I wrote our wedding music myself - and I’m going to show you how to do the same.

  • Maybe you need to tell your partner exactly how much you love them, but can’t find the words?

  • Perhaps your parents have a big anniversary year coming up; what could be a more perfect gift than digging out their old wedding video and creating them their very own wedding soundtrack?

  • What if you’re in the exact same boat as we were, and want that PERFECT piece for your own special day?

  • Or maybe you're working on a short romantic film and need some tips on creating the perfect score?

This course is a complete guide to writing, arranging, orchestrating, mixing, AND mastering your very own romantic music. I walk you through the entire composing process, including

  • working out your timings

  • choosing your instruments

  • creating the perfect melody and harmony

Then, in a set of "over-the-shoulder" videos, I show you exactly how to:

  • orchestrate your composition,

  • make your instruments sound amazing,

  • give your piece it’s final polish before you unveil it to your nearest and dearest

NB: in this course "romantic" refers to the emotion, not the 18th/19th century romantic period of music! Don't be fooled, budding Beethovens!

Create The Perfect Gift: Express Your Love With Music

Sometimes words just aren't enough. If you really want to show that special someone just how much you care for them, music can be the best way. What's more special than a romantic score, capturing exactly how you feel?

Compose A Romantic Score

Are you working on a romantic film and need some direction? Or do you need to create some music for a special day of your own? Or maybe you want to write your own music for your, or a family member's wedding movie? This course is based around working with specific timing notes, so is perfect for live, or moving image projects - showing you how to structure your pieces to work with exact timings.

The Instructor

I (Jonny Armandary) am an international award-winning film music composer, who has taught film music composition and production at University level. I am also the founder of, where my aim is to make composing for the moving image accessible to all.

How to Start a Record Label & Create a Career in Music

Build Your Own Empire In The Music Business

My name is Jae Preme. I was just like you. Working for a boss, instead of being one. I had a passion for music, like you, and knew what my dream was but didn't know how to make it a reality. After a lot of hard work, I realized my vision and now own my own record label.

I have another passion, helping others. I followed my dreams, but spent countless hours researching, failing through trial and error with no real guide to help me. Now, I'm passing what I have learned on to you.

Create, Like a Boss
You're here because you love music you want to make money from your music, and you want what the great entrepreneurs in the music business have. A Music Business empire. Artists like Tech N9ne, Master P, Nipsey Hussle, Jay-z, Dom Kennedy, and a host of others have all seen independent success with their music. It’s possible for you also and I'm going to show you how to get started on your journey.

So, why this course out of all the courses out there on starting a record label?

Real simple! Everything You Need, One Course
You may be saying to yourself, "I don't know anything about the Music Business." This course compiles everything you need to know to start from scratch with no prior experience. Starting with the basics and providing you with the step-by-step instructions that I would have loved to have had myself when I started.

Some of the information in those other books and courses are great, but a lot of it is so outdated. This is the digital age baby!! Most of that information that you get from other courses apply to brick & Mortar record label startups. In these times you can legitimately start a digital record label with way less money than you had to back in those times. The cool thing about it is you can do it right from home. This course is geared toward the digital age and provides tons of online links to sources you will need to utilize. This saves time on doing all the searching yourself online.

If you are an artists like myself, the music business is wide open for us these days. No longer do we have to hope, and wish, for a record deal. Now I’m not saying getting a record deal is a bad thing at all, but why not at least make an attempt at doing it yourself and then reaping all the benefits in the long run?

If you are looking to sign to a label I would suggest you sign to a strong independent record label who is applying the business strategies and techniques that I am going to share with you in this course.

I’m going give you all the information you are going to need to start your digital record label, but if you don’t apply it, years will go by and you will still be a dreamer in the same position you were in five years ago.

Oh, and another thing, I can’t guarantee your label will be successful because if your music sucks, or your artist music suck, you are going to have a hard time no matter what genre of music you’re in.

So what is it that you are going to learn in this course you ask?

  • Business setup
  • Releasing your music on iTunes and other digital music platforms
  • How to register your songs to make money from publishing
  • Marketing and promotion
  • Recording a project and what you need to get it done yourself
  • Ways to make money from music placements
  • Shooting your own music videos
  • Making money on YouTube
  • All the extra stuff you won't find from a Google search

And much more…

Stop Dreaming, Start Doing
The secret to success isn't about luck. Successful people create their own luck. They seek out the resources they need to get things done. They put in the time and work. They get out there and do it. You have a dream, get out there and live it!

If you are lazy, unmotivated, lackadaisical, spoiled, or just a negative person this course is not for you. You at least have to be first willing to change your mindset, attitude, and the way you look at life.

Created by Jonathan Armandary - Award-Winning Film Music Composer


Students: 1066, Price: $99.99

Students: 1066, Price:  Paid

You’re a composer / producer that can write high quality music that sounds polished.

What if you could learn how to make money with music?

And not only to make a bit of cash on the side, but what if you could transform that music into a music business, providing you a full-time income?

That would be pretty life-changing, right?

Well, I’m here to tell you all about the library music industry, and how you can build a portfolio of tracks that will sell consistently and bring you the pride and satisfaction of making money from your music.

And depending on your own goals, level, and ability, the amount you earn from your music can be anything from a few dollars a month to pay for a cinema ticket, right the way through to you having a fully-fledged music business with a full 6-figure income.

The best part is, a lot of that income comes passively from tracks in your catalogue!

In this music business course on how to make money with music, you’re going to learn:

  • About the library music business models, which ones you should write for, and how to maximise your success in each model

  • The best ways to make your music perfect for stock music libraries, and how to optimise sales

  • How to write great titles, tags, and descriptions that help you rank in music libraries

  • How to approach music publishers to give yourself the best chance of signing with a premium library, and also how register and upload your music to online marketplaces to sell stock music, and make money online

By the end of the course you’re going have a thorough understanding of how the library music industry works and where your money comes from. I’ll also share with you my top advice on how to make your music best work in a music library, and how to maximise how much money you can earn from your music.

This really is a complete guide to the library music business, and we’re going to go in-depth into the non-exclusive, royalty-free libraries as well as the more premium music publishers.

So whether you’re fairly new to composition, or whether you’ve years of experience under your belt - I’m going to show you exactly how to get started and where to focus your efforts depending on your level.

And don’t think that just because you’re fairly new to music composition or production that this isn’t an option for you.

That’s not true at all - we all have to start somewhere, and the earlier you start trying to make money from your music, the sooner you’ll learn what works and what doesn’t, and with my guidance you’ll be headed in the right direction right from the get go.

As well as the main video lectures in the course I’ve also put together for you:

  • A list of all the major music libraries and publishers in the music industry that you can contact and register your music with - including both premium, exclusive libraries and non-exclusive royalty-free ones (where you can make money online by selling stock music)

  • My checklist for stock music composition so that you remember exactly what steps you need to go through to create successful, sellable library music pieces - perfectly tailored to the library music industry

  • A collection of email templates for reaching out to music supervisors, A&R reps, and music library owners, to help you get signed with a reputable music publisher and start earning those coveted performance and broadcast royalties - the first step towards turning your hobby into a music business!

You’ll also get a copy of my eBook, “The Media Scoring Guide”, that takes you through all of the skills and equipment that you’ll need to get started, as well as the process of composing music for media.

And on top of all that, you’ll be invited to join my closed group of composers and producers where you can get advice and feedback from me and other music industry professionals that are in the group, as well as from your peers going through the same journey as you.

As with all of my courses you’re protected by a 30-day money back guarantee - no hard feelings, I completely understand that sometimes things just aren’t what you expect - so you’ve really nothing to lose.

Hit the “buy now” button and start your journey towards making money from your music today!

A final note before I leave you to finish signing up, I can’t guarantee that you’ll make money from your music, no one can, and if anyone does promise you that, they’re lying to you - unless they’re literally standing there with a wad of money about to buy some music from you!

Whether or not you make money from your music depends on your ability, goals, and how seriously you take action on the lessons in the course. I can tell you that if you follow my advice, implement my teaching, and, most importantly, take action, then you’ll stand a much greater chance of success than without.

I am touched by your class.

Before I wrote for myself and I had trouble connecting to people. From now on, I understand that we must make them feel our text!.


'Exactly what I needed to make progress in songwriting. Thanks!'

Halvdan Presthus

'Eve stretched me in uncomfortable places that I probably wouldn't explore on my own. She is easy to follow and answers questions quickly.

Thanks Eve!'


'I've been writing for a while with no prior training. I always feel like I'm missing a part of the puzzle. This course has enlightened me and i want to go further.'


'Excellent course. Very useful insights and tips from Eve and excellent content and demonstration of the practical use of our learnings.'


As an A&R rep at a music licensing company, I listened to many songs every week. Of those that are nearly there but not quite, it's the lyrics that often pose a problem: lyrics without a story, or too much cliché or no consistent theme. It's a myth that pop lyrics are meaningless. Pro songwriters spend alot of time on lyrics.

In those course you will learn how to craft lyrics like a professional songwriter and what errors to avoid. Specifically, we will look at 

  • Wireframing: constructing a story progression to your lyrics

  • 'Show, Don't Tell': the use of imagery

  • Metaphor

  • Intertextual Writing: taking inspiration from other works of art without ripping them off

  • Using the right language for your song's audience

  • Songforms and understanding the importance of structure

  • Cowriting

The course begins by looking at some very effective lyrics, then asks you to craft your own. There are video and text exercises to complete and you will have a chance to get my feedback on your lyrics or to post them for group feedback which may just help you find cowriters!

Whether you are aiming for  a publishing deal or just starting out in songwriting, this course is for you. For new lyric writers it will set you up with sound principles, and for experienced songwriters it will help break lyrical bad habits. It is open to writers in all musical genres.

Here is an example of the press I've got for my own lyric writing:

'Eve has established herself as an artist of considerable sophistication, recognised for her powerful toplines and moving lyrics.'

-The Musician Magazine

I also hold a Master of Music in Songwriting as well as having written with well established writers (see my bio), so you can trust that the methods I teach are industry recognised.

Would you like to earn money from music? Have you been earning money but would like to increase your income from music? Would you like to venture into new music related income streams?

If you would like to make a full time or part time living from music, this is the course for you.

In this course you will learn how to make money from music. This is not as daunting or as complex as it seems: we look at several different income streams which are easily accessible to musicians at any point in their careers, even if you do not yet have a huge following. The lectures are very practical and you will be able to put what you learn into practice quickly.

Have you been feeling frustrated that your dedication to music hasn't been paying off financially?  At last there is practical, actionable information that will help you start seeing the results you want from your music.

After leaving my 'sensible day job' due to a serious health condition, I signed a music publishing contract and have been earning money exclusively from music ever since. Not only have I earned money, I have worked with acclaimed and lovely people, travelled extensively and grown as a person. My music business is also a way of life! Many of me students tell em that they find this course practical and 'real world friendly' because online some other courses on this topic it doesn't require you to have an in depth knowledge of business or relate only to working with massive corporations (although a few of those are in here, too!). If you have never run your own business, all the steps you need to put into place to start making income in a self employed capacity are here.


Most pro musicians work a portfolio, meaning they make money from several different sources. In this course you will learn how to make money from several income streams in the music industry for a sustainable music career, including:

  • Live performance

  • Selling CDs and merchandise

  • Session work

  • Teaching

  • Songwriting and music publishing

  • Music Licensing (placing your music in film, TV, games etc)

  • Streaming and selling digital content

This course will help you find the right combination for you of these areas of work to make an income. We also look at practical things such as which organisations to sign up to so you are paid royalties, places to go for professional development and contracts that make sure you are paid fairly.

We will also look at writing a music business plan and building your professional profile. The course includes information on the going rate for specific music industry services and should help you to set up your own small music business.

You will have my personal support as you do so: I love to be asked questions and give feedback on students' music.

EQ is one of the two most commonly used signal processing tools audio engineers use everyday, the other being a compressor. EQ is very powerful because allows to alter the frequency of a track, instrument, or vocal. Anyone interested in learning more about EQ should subscribe to this course. In this course I start with learning frequencies. Its incredible how some engineers can pinpoint problem frequencies. I will show my approach for learning frequencies when you hear them. After a lot of practice you will be grabbing an EQ and adjusting problem frequencies with confidence.

You will also learn the difference in parametric and semi parametric EQ's. Also I go over fixed frequency eq's. Knowing the difference between these will help you know which ones to reach for and when. EQ curves can take on many different settings with its different shapes of curves. In this course I go over the different settings listed below.

    • High pass filter/ Low cut
    • Low pass filter/ High cut
    • peaking
    • Low shelf
    • High shelf
    • Band pass

The way an EQ boost and cuts can have unique shape of its own. In this course I go over the following curve types.

    • Asymmetrical
    • Symmetrical
    • Proportional
    • Tilt
    • Baxandall

I also cover the different EQ types such as a dynamic EQ. I will go over how to use a Pultec style EQ. This the most awkward EQ's you will come across because of its unique design and labeling. After the learning how to use a pultec eq and hearing what it can do its no surprise why this type of EQ in heavily emulated as plugins and recreated as hardware. In course I will go over my approach for Eq'ing a vocal. Vocals can one of the hardest things to eq because every vocal is different. Prepare to spend more than an hour with me as I tech you all about EQ.

How is Pink Floyd differentiated from The Rolling Stones? Why is Jimi Hendrix considered as an immensely influential rock guitarist? What is the role of the social and political aspects in the San Francisco Hippies movement and the emergence of psychedelic rock?  

These are questions that can entail intriguing answers. The consideration of multiple narratives - style and stylistic influence, the social, political, and economic axes, etc. - against the musical timeline is essential to the thorough understanding and appraisal of the history of rock music. This is the approach I follow for the last 6 years in my university courses. It has proven very successful, and I see no reason not to apply it here as well!

In this course we will survey the history of rock music, from its roots (the blues) to the exciting rock genres of the 1960s, with a focus on: 

  • the various rock genres, sub-genres and styles

  • the artists that played a role in the arrival and evolution of rock music

  • the stylistic and other characteristics of each rock genre and sub-genre and the relationship between them

  • the role of the economic, political, and social parameters in the shaping of rock music

The course is arranged in 11 sections as follows: 

  1. Introduction & Overview 

    • Appraising a subject historically

    • Preliminary technical information - addressing essential musical parameters such as melody, harmony, rhythm, genre. form, and style

  2. The Blues

    • Country (Delta) blues

    • City (electric) blues

  3. Country & Western Music

    • C & W sub-genres (i.e., bluegrass and 'honky-tonk') and their impact on the 1950s rock & roll 

  4. Rock & Roll

    • Mainstream 1950s rock (Rock & Roll) 

    • Rockabilly

    • 1950s pop

  5. Blues-Based Rock

    • London in the early 1960s - fascination with the Blues and the creation of blues-based rock

    • The transformation of the blues into rock

    • The guitarist as a rock hero

  6. The Beatles

    • The role of the Fabulous Four in the formation of rock music in the 1960s

    • The 'British Invasion'

  7. Folk Rock

    • 'Purity' and sensitivity - music as reflection of social ideals

    • Integration of the sensitivity of rock music with the energy and drive of a rhythm section comprised of electric instruments

  8. Surf Rock

    • Surf rock within the context of the surf culture in California during the early1960s 

  9. Psychedelic Rock - The San Francisco & the Hippies Movement

    • San Francisco and the Hippies Movement

    • The social and political context in the 1960s and its affect on rock music

    • Woodstock Music Festival

  10. A Quest for Sophistication - Art Rock

Ready to take your compression skills to the next level? In my All About Compression course I move on to more advanced information about compression. I will go over advanced compressor controls such as mix, knee, and side chain. If you've taken my basics of compression course then consider this course the next step to continue learning about compression. In All About Compression I will cover the different types of compressors, different kinds of compressors, uses for different type of compressors, classic compressors and how to use them, and much more. I also go over different compressor techniques and examples of use. This course will expand your capabilities with a compressor and introduce you to new ways of how to use them. I've been engineering for over 15 years now, and in that time I've gotten to use a lot of different compressors. And I've gotten to know some compressors very well. The more you use and learn about compressors the more the confident you will become in using them. And this course should help boost that confidence. Because all compressors are different it can be difficult to find the right compressor the job. I will go over my approach to choosing a compressor for a track. Anyone taking this course should have a DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) with a compressor plugin so they can go over and practice these techniques. The DAW being used in this course Presonus Studio One. However the DAW you use is not important, as all DAW's will come with a compressor. By sharing some of my knowledge of 15 plus years in audio this course will teach you the following:

  • Different compressor types
  • compression techniques
  • Multi band compression
  • De-essing and how to set a de-esser
  • choosing the right compressor
  • parallel compression
  • serial compression
  • side chain compression
  • using automation with compression
  • how to set a compressor for general compression
  • how to set a compressor for mix bus compression
  • classic comperssors and how to use them
