Feedback from past students

"What a fabulous and inspiring course! I really liked Keith’s fresh and honest approach to each lesson, and how he took us step by step through the songwriting process, I didn’t want it to end! Keith adapts the course to suit everyone in the class and is a super generous teacher, I had a ball! After years of writing and attending other songwriting classes I now feel like I have a comprehensive and solid base to work from. Both inspiring and practical, I highly recommend this course! Just awesome!"thanks Keith!
