Here's Scott's intro and focus for his course:
“Hello my name is Scott McMicken. I am really excited and intrigued by this opportunity to explore the finer points of the songwriting experience in the group setting. At the end of the day that, to me, is ultimately a look at life and self in the broadest sense. To go there communally strikes me as a rare gem of an opportunity! Together we’ll explore questions like… why do we write songs? what truly informs our judgment? how has your own personal genre developed? what role does fear play? who are we serving? what would happen if we tried to write a song no one would hear? what is the purest form of your intention?
I feel that a group situation is a great way to take some chances, enter the hall of mirrors, and together provide for one another a place to experience first-hand that there's nothing to really fear. And that failure can be as much a chance to laugh as it is a devastating blow to the foundation. I'm really excited for this chance to dig in with you all and lead from the vantage point of one with much to learn and much to let go of. Here's to the pursuit of a freer more fearless soul!” scott mcmicken
