THU 9 MAR 2017 - TEACHING POP WITH NO MUSIC

Today's Rap is a little different. I'll be showing you how to teach a pop song with no music. This happens all the time in my studio: student comes into lesson and talks about a song they'd like to learn.

Sometimes they've already tried playing by ear or using a YouTube tutorial, other times they just know they'd like to try it out. 

Wherever they're up to, let me show you how musical you can make this experience. Watch the full recording and read the transcript here.
