  • Udemy – Turn Your Talent Into a Profitable Singing Career In 90 Days [100% OFF]

    Posted on 08/03/2019 by | 0 comments

    Course Description

    True, I could start out by telling you all about my career today

    That I’m earning an average of between $4,000 and $8,000 every month
    without having to perform every single night…

    (and that’s while being a busy mom, very active and important in my two young children’s lives)

    That over the last 15 years, I’ve performed all over the world, participated in international music competitions,
    won many prizes, including first place, and taken part in dozens of different projects as a singer…

    But no.

    I actually want to start out with the fact that before I had all this stability,
    I had only one thing, or perhaps actually two: unpolished talent—and desire!

    These two things managed to help me accomplish for myself what I want to teach you to accomplish.

    I didn’t have a mentor showing me the way, taking me by the hand and shortening the process,
    saving me from all the failures and mistakes, or lifting me back up onto my feet when I lost hope and motivation.

    And that’s one of the reasons it took me so long to get to this stable point.

    But it doesn’t have to take you as long as it took me… why?

    Because you have – me.

    I’ve spent my whole life around lots of musicians and talented people.
    Many are also personal friends, which is why it hurts so much to see so lots of them unable to succeed in turning their talent into a stable occupation or livelihood—unable to actualize their potential in the field and maybe not even sure where to begin…

    After a while, it hurt me enough that I needed to get up and do something about it.

    So I got up and took all the knowledge I’d accumulated,
    all the years of personal experience, and bundled it all up into methods that are efficient,
    simple, and practical, with support tools I’ve created offering courses for other musicians.

    I offer these courses for musicians and singers so I can teach them how to accomplish just that-
    how to actualize their own potential through music, building a profitable, stable career from singing.
    So that they’ll be able to sing, perform, bask in all that applause, greet every day with more heart,
    to entertain, to build emotion, becoming a personal example to everyone they know,
    and calling it “my job” with so much pride.

    So that they’ll have what I was missing.
    So they won’t be alone for even a moment,
    but instead reach their goals faster,
    letting them show other musicians who might face the same challenges that they did it,
    providing inspiration and motivation for others.

    Since I created these courses, I’ve taught hundreds of people how to create a stable livelihood from singing,
    some of whom I’m still in touch with personally, thrilled at their incredible results.
    I’ve seen more than a few of them quit their jobs, change their positions,
    realize their old childhood dreams and upgrade their happiness level along with their wallet—
    even if they’re parents, inexperienced young students, talented people nearing retirement age,
    or just fifty-year-olds… I’ve seen a lot of everything.

    And in my courses, I can teach you how to get the same results.

    This is a basic course.

    It’s the first piece in the puzzle, an abridged version of the underlying framework of the complete system.

    It explains the principle of the five steps which will help you build a stable singing career and shows you the way to reach them.

    So let’s start by taking the first step,

    So that you, too, can realize your potential and turn your singing talent into an exciting income.

    Can’t wait to meet you inside!

  • Udemy – Play Incredible Guitar Solos: Essential Exercises [100% OFF]

    Posted on 18/01/2019 by | 0 comments

    Course Description

    “Ryan’s course has taught me so much about guitar soloing that I couldn’t have learned elsewhere.  I was even able to play a solo from one of my favorite songs!” -Michael Suprise

    “Ryan has been able to help me shortcut what would’ve been a long, directionless path otherwise.  Being able to see those tangible results has inspired me forward and made learning the guitar a heck of a lot of fun.” -Jorden Barrow

    What are your dreams?

    If you had the freedom to play anything you wanted on the guitar, what would you be playing right now?

    If you’re like most people, you might hesitate to answer this question because you feel like it would be considered unrealistic or you feel like maybe you’re just not the guitar soloing type.

    You’ve got a busy schedule so maybe you don’t have time or maybe you just can’t afford lessons with top quality teachers.  It’s perfectly normal to feel this way, but I’m here to tell you, if you feel the guitar calling out to you and you want to play beautiful solos, then you’ll be able to do it!  And it’s not as hard as you might think.

    My Story:

    A few years ago I was just like you.  I didn’t see how I could possibly master the art of playing inspiring guitar solos.  The dream was too big and my idols were too good.  Maybe guitar gods became a phrase because the rest of us mortals simply couldn’t ever learn to play like them.

    I slaved away for years spending most of my practice time noodling around over a few scales never really getting anywhere.  It all seemed so complicated at first but gradually over time, I began to realize that there are only 3 main pillars that make up great guitar solos:

    1. Scales

    2. Left hand techniques

    3. Right hand techniques

    After I mastered these 3 pillars, I thrived.

    I’ve been able to play onstage with nearly 100 different singers and groups, I’ve won multiple awards and recognitions including the runner-up prize in a national guitar competition sponsored by Elton John’s guitarist and most importantly, I can plug in and play great guitar solos on-demand.

    Your Story:

    The 3 pillars are not hard to understand.  The problem is that people fail to actually master them.  I know it’s hard to build discipline to practice.  That’s why I made this course.

    In this course I’ll give you access to the exact practices that I used to master the 3 pillars of guitar plus I’ll include a 4th section that shows how build on these pillars to take you from a complete beginner to a master of guitar solos.

    Each lesson is about 5-10mins and will feel as if I literally sat down to practice with you so you won’t have any excuses to get distracted or sidetracked and I’ll answer all your questions as we go through the exercises so you never get stumped.  This will put you in the top 5% of guitarists who actually have a practice schedule so you can improve much quicker than everyone else.

    This course is great for absolute beginners as well as knowledgeable players who just want to get better at playing solos.

    So if you’re ready to take your guitar solos to the next level, sign up for the course right now. Or check out the free video previews to learn more about how you can start to master the guitar TODAY.

  • Udemy – The Complete ARPEGGIO SONGS Guitar Course [100% OFF]

    Posted on 30/12/2018 by | 0 comments

    Course Description

    Are you tired of the same boring way of playing songs – only by strumming them? (“down-down-up”, etc.)

    Think about the following songs – can you recall the guitar picking style that makes them sound special and stand out? I bet you do for at least most of them:

    • Green Day – Time of Your Life
    • Led Zeppelin – Stairway to Heaven
    • The Eagles – Hotel California
    • Jeff Buckley – Hallelujah
    • Bob Dylan – Don’t Think Twice It’s Alright
    • Fleetwood Mac – Landslide
    • The Animals – House of The Rising Sun

    This picking style – called arpeggio picking – where we pick the notes individually instead of strumming all strings together – is exactly the topic of the course.

    This is personally my favorite way to play songs in – and I also really like to take songs that are originally strummed and instead spice them up using arpeggios.

    You will learn exactly how to use the beautiful arpeggio technique and incorporate it into any song that you’ll choose to:

    • All about playing songs using the arpeggio picking – and that means that we will be talking practically and using examples from popular rock and pop songs.
    • Exactly how to transition ANY regular (strummed) song into an interesting, arpeggiated one.
    • How to use the arpeggio technique both by using a pick or by using your fingers. (Fingerstyle arpeggio)
    • The #1 secret for smoothness and accuracy when playing arpeggios – when a friend told me that – my whole approach to arpeggios became a lot more natural and easy, AND I sounded way better.
    • When and in what parts of the songs it’ll usually sound better if you’ll use arpeggios instead of regular strums.
    • You’ll be able to write songs using the arpeggio technique – songs that’ll be a lot more unique.
    • Learn the exact arpeggio patterns for songs ranging from Bob Dylan, Jeff Buckley, R.E.M and many other greats.
    • I will teach you a technique that I call the “Arpeggio Bass Stairways” – where you can add gorgeous, interesting transitions between the different chords of the song.
    • How to make your arpeggios “dirty”, so you can add some power to the more intense parts of the song while still not playing the simple “down-down-up” kind of rhythm.

    On top of that, as a bonus, you will learn many more things (see below) that will be of a huge help along your guitar journeys, some of them really took me years to find out.

    Tricks, hacks and techniques: (Partial list, see the curriculum for the rest, and new lessons added every 1-2 months)

    • The 13 most useful guitar apps in 2018 – apps that will actually help you improve much faster.
    • How to find the correct strumming pattern for any song just by listening to it. (I know I have been struggling with this one for years until I figured it out)
    • 8 ways to develop your time-keeping skills and really get that pro sound.
    • How to use a capo to make sure the song matches your voice, and also to create different voicings when playing with another guitarist.
    • 6 tips on how to easily conquer any barre chord. (like the F chord)
    • 10 ways to improve your “musicality”.
    • 4 ways to avoid the notorious pain in the fingertips that every guitarist encounters.
    • My favorite 13 guitar accessories – things that’ll actually improve your guitar life.
    • How to find that one chord that finishes the song perfectly.
    • 6 ways to customize your guitar and add some elegant bling to it.
    • The ideal fingernail length for playing guitar.
    • 8 golden tips to get the most out of every practice session and improve much faster.
    • The 4 pillars of the perfect guitar maintenance routine that’ll make your guitar fun to come back to.
    • And More lessons that will enrich your skills and sound, with newer ones added regularly.

  • Udemy – How to Release a Professional Beat Tape [100% OFF]

    Posted on 14/12/2018 by | 0 comments

    Course Description

    After releasing 8 beat tapes on Spotify (as of Dec. 2018), I want to share my valuable insight to my workflow of putting together a professional beat tape. (My beat tape series is called: BEAT TAPES By GratuiTous.)

    Over the years, I have talked about why releasing a beat tape brings way bigger benefits than releasing single beats.

    So, I finally decided to create an in-depth course covering all aspects of putting together a beat tape from:

    • What All Goes Into Releasing a Beat Tape
    • Tips and Strategies to Save Time and Actually Complete the Beat Tape
    • Setting Yourself Up with Templates to Speed up your Workflow
    • Releasing, Marketing, and Promoting Your Beat Tape
    • Putting Together a Physical CD Version of Your Beat Tape

    The knowledge you will learn in this course will help you to stand out and stay professional, all while not getting burned out, and still having the burning passion to create your music.

    A beat tape will take your productions to the next level because it forces you to complete a big project.  Just think about the amount of practice you’d obtain through the process!

    If your beat tapes contain 10 beats per release you’ll not only learn the mixing and mastering for each track, but also learn how to blend each song into each other as your listener goes from track to track on your beat tape.

    The course first starts with explaining:

    Why even consider creating a beat tape and how much value it brings you as a producer:

    The amount of practice, branding, and experience you will obtain is immense!

    It also forces a lot of those producers who have troubles finishing a project.  This gives you an end goal, as well as an amazing portfolio to present to any potential clients.

    We then step into your mindset before jumping into creating a beat tape:

    You have to think, if you’re going to be creating multiple beat tapes, it’s important to take time out beforehand to set yourself up with various techniques I talk about.

    This will save you TONS of time and also keep you structured down the road for future releases.

    Next topic is about actually creating the beat tape:

    You get to see one of my personal beats which I have mixed, and a whole walk-through of how I’ve set it up and prepared it for the next stage, which is mastering.  (Note, we do not actually mix and master tracks in this course, I do however walk you through a real-example and cover my settings and mindset.)

    We jump into the mastering, where again, you are walked-through a real-world example of a beat (Keys for Christ) which is actually on Volume 7 of my BEAT TAPES by GratuiTous series!  We talk about my mastering chain, why I’ve ordered plugins the way I have, their parameter settings, and what your end goal is with mastering for your beat tape.

    We even talk about best export settings, ISRC codes and what they are, and the fade ins/outs of your songs so listeners can experience the most emotion if listening to your beat tape from start till the end.

    I’ve also snuck a section in about folder structure for proper backing up:

    It’s very important you stay organized because this is no longer just a single beat.  You are creating a series for your fans to follow.  If you have missing sounds years down the road, you will be very disappointed in yourself for not staying organized!

    I’ve also included a video on ID3 tagging your MP3’s in case you offer a free download version of your beat tape on your website.  This makes your MP3’s look professional with the proper information being in them, as well as your beat tape’s artwork displayed as they play your song in their media player!

    We then talk about online distribution (DistroKid, CDBaby, Tunecore, etc.):

    To get your music onto steaming platforms like Spotify or for sale on digital stores like iTunes, you need to use an online distributor.

    And if you’re like me, you’ll notice there are TONS of online distributors available.  However, sometimes when there’s so many options, it makes it hard to know what’s the best choice.

    I explain my personal thoughts and suggested resources for finding the right online distributor for you.

    I even include a video of actually uploading a beat tape to my online distributor so you can fully see the process!

    I then give you some suggestions and tips about marketing and releasing the beat tape I’ve tried over the years:

    Everything from what kind of platforms and tools you have available to release/market your new beat tape, to some good and bad real-life stories I’ve experienced through my own marketing attempts.

    Creating your Artwork:

    Finally, we talk about your artwork.

    I explain how to set up a template, how I’ve approached my artwork, and we also get into how you prepare your artwork if you were to create a real physical beat tape to get printed to hand out!

    This course contains so much information I would have loved to have had before creating my own beat tapes! (The amount of time, effort, and mistakes I could have saved myself.)

    But hey!  That’s what this course is for!

    You’ll save yourself from making these same silly mistakes and set yourself up on the road for solid beat tape releases.

    Each release you work on will just get easier and easier!

    I hope the best with your music!  (Let your music do the speaking for you when it comes to revealing your skills!)
