Hakan's Global Song Retreat
Hakan’s Global Song Retreat is a three-day event that will supercharge your songwriting. The magic of Zoom makes this unique learning experience possible, no matter where you live. Each writer gets to pick their retreat spot where they will be free of distractions and be able to immerse themselves in the course work. For most people this will mean saving a lot of money by going to the Motel 6 in the most beautiful spot in their own state. For others this might mean splurging on a nice hotel in Jamaica. As long as you have a fast Internet connection and access to a beautiful spot in nature, it is your choice.
This course is for songwriters that want to write songs that are much better than average. It helps to have some experience playing songs in public, but it is not necessary. There will be some tools for performing songwriters as well. The aim of this course is to help you write your masterpiece. (This will not teach you the formula for a hit song that makes you money.)
You will come away from this retreat with tools to help you advance your songwriting to the next level. You will create your roadmap that will give you the path to writing your masterpiece. (And many more great songs.)
Included in the fee is a free sound check to help you sound and look great on Zoom. Guest instructors will be Zoomed in for some amazing content. There will be one-on-one consultation during the course, and time to write and perform songs.
This will require a laptop with a webcam and a condenser mic of some kind. (Tablets and phones will not suffice.) You will also need a recording device that is portable, like a phone or small recorder.
