Finding Your Mission Statement

Lesson Notes – DOWNLOAD
Made To Love You by Summer State of Mind:

We’re going to start by writing a mission statement; exploring what really drives us to write music. Doing this will help draw out our passions, find our niche, and help inform us when looking deeper at our musical influences.

This session is FREE (scroll up for the video!)

In this session, we’re going to look at our favourite artists and how they fit together to help us build a unique sound. Doing this will start to give us an idea of the type of music we’ll end up making.

In this session, we’ll be taking our analysis and see where we can use it in our music. There will be certain elements that will really help us to communicate the vision we set out in the “Finding Your Mission Statement” session.

Now that we have a vision for our music we need a strategy to make it happen. We’ll be looking at how we can best utilise the musicians we have around us and also how to get what we want even with a complete lack of musicians.

In this session we’ll be creating a short/medium term project to help give you focus and not overwhelm musicians that you’re working with. Having something manageable to work towards is key to getting something off the ground and also keeping musicians interested!

In this final session we’ll be looking at how to create a clear, concise vision for our music so we can get other people excited about our music and being involved with it (whether that’s musicians, recording engineers, people helping out with promo). We’ll be drilling into each instrument used in our new sound and write a brief outline of its role within the band. I’ve found that if you can communicate a clear vision then you get a much bigger investment of time from musicians you’re working with.
