Cost: 

   $60 - For the pilot program, my aim was to price the experience at about how much it cost to run it and ask attendees for feedback

Starting with Why

“I know that for me, part of what holds the keys to a meaningful life is the ability to effectively communicate and creatively express myself - often through songs. Therefore, the pursuit of habitual songwriting with output, feedback, and growth in mind is paramount and a community of like-minded individuals helps bring sustainability to that aim, because of the accountability and outside perspective available when others are involved. 

 

I have a vision of creating such an environment for others.”

    -Kyler

The “Dare” is to start fresh and constantly return to the world of uncertainty hopefully with a frame of curiosity, empathy, or something else that helps us create.  Through Output and Accountability we aim to expand the collection of art we’ve created and explore what we want to say.

We will also talk about tools and tactics to make more meaningful songs in ways that we will define for ourselves. 

 

What this isn’t:

This isn’t a production workshop, however, we will cover ways to capture song ideas as they sprout!

What you get per week:

Feedback and ideas related to the previous week's song from Kyler 

 

Note: The intention is to get kind, honest, and curious feedback above all else.

What you get once over the course of workshop:

1) One-on-one with Kyler after the third song is submitted to talk about how things are going so far. 

2) Feedback from cohort on which is your songs they'd like to hear the first version of and why

Workshop Goals:

Build the habit of songwriting into your schedule

Learn to dance with the fear you bring into writing, recording sessions

Feel the love of giving yourself time to engage in songwriting

Become more comfortable showing your new songs to other people

Find the joy in living a more whole-hearted life.
