Testimonials from September 2023 Students:

"Taja - thank you for your time and sharing your process! The way that you broke down your intuitive writing style was amazing and opened up a lot of new ideas for me. I especially loved your encouragement to just try things!"

"Ummm, thank you x 1 million times! Being a fan of L'Rain, it was a major treat just being able to listen and hear Taja talk about her process and experiences directly. I appreciated how generous she was in each session, and I felt like she made everything feel so accessible and conversational...Inspiring!"

Q: What musical experience should I have?
A: People across all musical levels will be able to gain something from the course. However, it will be helpful to be comfortable playing a few basic chords on any instrument of your choice.
Q: What if I’ve never written a song before? Can I still participate in this workshop?
A: Yes! As with any new skill, just starting is usually the hardest part. This workshop will provide the structure and accountability we all need to get started and follow through, for beginners and old guard writers alike.

Q: What is different about watching this past course versus participating while the workshop is run live?

A: By purchasing this course, you'll have access to the same resources as the students who took the course while it was running other than the live songshares.
