VIDEO CREATION FOR MUSICIANS
About The YouTube Lab
Is this course right for you?
When I first started on my YouTube journey there was a *massive* learning curve that I went through. At the time, there wasn't an all-inclusive course I could take that would help me get right to creating high-quality videos.
Instead, I spent countless hours scouring the internet and trying to find the answers I needed. This led to all kinds of conflicting information and trial and error.
Fast forward 3 years, and I have now figured out all the hacks to best grow and reach my audience and generate views. Keep in mind, this is after creating almost 200 videos - it definitely didn't happen overnight! But here's the thing: it's worth it. Why? Because of the creative and financial stability it can bring.
Believe it or not, I'm able to pay all my bills from revenue brought in from my videos.
I'll be honest, 2/3 of my regular gigs vanishing this past year, and I don't know how I would have survived without this revenue source I built for myself. It broke my heart to see so many musicians struggle as work dried up amidst unprecedented times. And look, I get it, trying to create a second revenue stream can seem incredibly overwhelming, especially when it comes to the many technical hurdles associated with video creation.
That's why I created The YouTube Lab: Video Creation for Musicians. This course was built around the material I used to teach as a guest lecturer at some of the top Conservatories and Universities. The one thing music students always wanted to ask about was "how do I make videos" or "how do I do what you do". I quickly realized there was no easy way to answer this in a short period of time, and decided to put everything I know in one easy to digest place. This all-inclusive course is a labor of love for me, and one that I so wish I had available to me early on.
I've poured everything I know about video creation and how to be successful on YouTube into this course to help you jump to the front of the line and save you the frustration, hassle, and time I had to experience when starting out.
