All the sessions have been wonderful.
I wasn't sure if an online event could nourish me with the same beauty and depth as the live workshops- but I am happy and fulfilled that the answer is yes, it can.
I don't feel like a failure anymore and I try to deal with my fears more lovingly.
Tonight I felt quite peaceful- the stress was really gone. What a relief.
The sessions are very supportive and healing. Your facilitation and care are amazing.
Songwriting & ChantMaking
This course provides tools, tips, and techniques in songwriting and deepening one’s creative possiblity. We work with lyrics, melody, chord structure. Time for participants to share their songwriting process. ‘Re-writing the lyrics of our lives’ is a central key to the process, journeying with one’s own story in song. Playing an accompanying instrument (guitar or keyboard, for example) is helpful but not required.
I already watched the first video and it's perfect for me! I wouldn't have had time for a 'live workshop', so I now can do it whenever I like, at my own speed.
Really enjoying your course. Not only great for the music- the lessons also help me connect better with my own true self.
A surprise and a great gift for me! Now I'm motivated to go further on, feeling welcomed by you to the craft of songwriting.
I'm loving your class so much ... you are a marvelous teacher.
This course provides a forum for anyone wishing to deepen their skill on the instrument, and especially helpful for songwriters and songleaders. Learning to play Michael’s chants and songs forms a foundation, along with new chord patterns and picking styles. Participants discover new sounds and musical experiences. A basic comfortability with the guitar is all that’s required; all levels of interest welcome.
You prepared and presented a beautiful and colourful variety of different elements. I also find it very helpful to play along with you.
I cannot believe how much I learn in only one session. Your teaching is incredible and very effective - it's a treasure.
I really must say how good this guitar-course is for me and my soul. It's positive (opposite to many things in the world right now)
You create a safe space for us to come out, where people are encouraged to pick a piece and work on it and then play it for others.
Just feels good to be connected to the atmosphere you create with your work and person.
I experience that as very healing.
