Hi, I'm Michael Sherman
Technology Coach, Musician, and Producer
Right now, I’m taking a handful of highly motivated music teachers and performers under my wing. Musicians who are ready to dive in and learn the Tech skills they need.
For the past decade, I have successfully managed a career as BOTH a professional musician AND Producer for Career musicians.
I’ve had the opportunity to work with students and Grammy™- winners alike.
I have worked with and coached HUNDREDS of professional musicians to learn the technology skills they need to be their own producers.
As all of my performing gigs disappeared this year, I realized just how valuable it is to have the skillset that I have.
And while I love working individually with musicians to produce their content, I ALSO love empowering musicians to do this on their own. I love hearing about the freedom that my clients get and how BIG of an impact knowing these skills can make.
Here’s a secret:
You just need a set of tools and a proven formula that WORKS.
THE BEST NEWS:
I will be there every step of the way to walk you through it.
Spending hours scouring Youtube tutorials for answers that don’t apply to you
Reading a tech-heavy engineering user manual that takes you HOURS to sift through
Google searching only to find conflicting and contradictory information
Getting overwhelmed by the amount of hardware and software choices out there
I’M HERE TO TEACH YOU EVERYTHING YOU NEED FROM A MUSICIAN’S PERSPECTIVE. NOT AN ENGINEERS.
I cut through the clutter of all of the technology mumbo-jumbo and teach in an extremely practical “Project-based” way.
We’ve talked about a lot of digital tools just now, but the tool that I value most in life is connecting with others. I would LOVE to hear about your own projects and help you get there.
Why am I offering my time for free? Well, this is not a hobby. It’s what I do!
THIS STUFF IS NOT HARD!
What gear do I need to take this course?
The ONLY requirement for the course is to have a Mac computer (Preferably less than 5 years old). That's it!
If I want to use my PC for this course, can I?
Although I use a PC for certain tasks, all of my creative work is done on a Mac. I consider it an essential tool for all musicians. My workflows are created using Logic Pro and Final Cut Pro, which are not available for PC.
What level of musicianship do I need to be at to benefit from this?
This course is intended for career-musicians. I.e., those who are pursuing music as a life path. You will gain the most from this course if you have a college music degree, or are about to!
Will this course help me launch my online teaching business?
YES. We will learn the VERY EASY (When you know the steps) tools for setting up an online teaching business, and you will learn the editing skills required to create AMAZING content.
Can't I learn how to learn these programs on Youtube?
Not easily! These are MY workflows that I have created over 4000 projects worth of refinement, and they are FAST. They are only available through this bootcamp!
What if I can't make it to a live module?
No problem! The module will be recorded and available for viewing afterward.
Will I be able to go through these modules again after the boot camp?
Absolutely. You will get lifetime access to the video modules.
