Saturday, March 18, from 3:00 – 5:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time(12:00 – 2:00 Pacific Standard Time), Composer, arranger, producer, and pianist, Greg Howlett is hosting another online class, this time with highly-experienced arranger and teacher Heather Sorenson. (Learn more about Heather here.)
The first hour will feature tips and answering questions, and for the second hour, the two musicians will evaluate 3 original arrangements sent in by students. The cost for observers is a mere $9.99! If you think this is a lot, or aren’t sure you will get your money’s worth out of this, I can assure you that it is totally worth it! You won’t be disappointed with the wealth of information these two experts bring to the table.
Greg is very generous to do host these master classes, however, due to technical constraints, class size is limited this time, so don’t wait!
