  • Deepen your connection with your wild and fearless Nature, with yourself, your life, your reality, your relations and your music

Songwriting & Recording on Logic Pro X: (7 weeks training)

Do you wish to connect your passion of lyric-writing with techie recording skills?  

Have you ever written a song that never got finished or shared with others? 

Do you desire to share your recordings on Spotify/SoundCloud/Youtube and be supported by the community?  

Join this course to learn how to express your emotions through songwriting and start manifesting your recordings into actual mp3s that can be uploaded online and even be remixed by DJs.  

You are reading this because you are ready to shine. 

Join Marlia Cœur @Sayuri’s Music School in Bali for the 7-week “Sing your Heart’s Song“ course of songwriting and recording.  

The program is a deeper dive into the process of writing your own lyrics, composing your own music, as well as the concepts and skills needed to learn how to record your song with affordable equipment in your own home studio.  

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN 

These 7 meetings are designed so that you finish the program with the confidence: 

* of creating truly authentic writing that helps you heal, process, and positively impact the planet, 

* of recording 2-channel arrangements with your own equipment on Logic Pro X to share with your community, and 

* of learning more about music, music recording, poetry, songwriting, and marketing skills. 

SKILLS YOU WILL GAIN 

Each week we will meet for a 2-hour session at Sayuri’s in central Ubud, in which we will cover things like concept, melody, lyrics, rhyme schemes, song structure, and delivery, all taught through the perspective of how your emotions and energy impact the process.  At your own time and space, you will be writing and composing your song, gathering each week for check-ins, answering questions and moving onto the process of recording on your laptop. This is a highly experiential process, and you will be writing EVERY week. There’s a very real opportunity to finish this program with multiple songs!
THE FUTURE 

Our 7th session together will be a showcase of everyone’s songs performed live in our safe container, exchanging each other’s social media information so that we can support each other on our journeys afterwards and creating a digital group to continue sharing new creations as they come into fruition.
The program’s dates/times are TBC. There will be enough time for answering questions/queries and creating a sustainable environment for helping each other out in terms of equipment and recordings.

What you seek, is also seeking you ~ Rumi

Handpan workshop: (2-day event)

Day 1: Handpan & Singing

Life and sound is interwoven. My passion is to share my discoveries and assist you to find your own personal way of integrating the relationship to the sound of your voice into your daily life and into your handpan compositions. I am a soundscaper. I walk in nature and listen carefully, often recording sounds, and then adding them to my songs. The sounds I recreate help me in a number of different ways, they can be a good mirror of my internal state. Tapping into sounds and their recreation often leads to song; sometimes new song and sometimes ancestral song that just comes straight from nowhere. Or so it seems. We begin with training your fingers on the handpan and your ears on the sounds. You will learn how to build up patterns on your instrument independently of your scale. You will develop touch, hand co-ordination and hand-independence skills. This workshop is designed to create a safe space and a state of bliss in a continually meditative state. 

No prior experience in singing needed. All levels of handpan players welcome. 

Day 2: Odd Rhythms of East Mediterranean

Welcome to this workshop on the use of odd time signatures on the handpan. Our goal will be to find comfort in playing other meters than 4/4. You will discover how rhythms are structured in bars and beats. You will learn how to create a melody from a pattern, creating rhythm cycles in flow. We will use clapping, singing, counting and dancing in the given meter to embody and internalise each rhythm. In this way you can practice when you’re away from your instrument. Most Western European music is based on rhythmic cycles of two, four or less commonly three beats. These correspond to the time signatures of 2/4, 4/4 and 3/4. To be clear we will treat 6/8, 7/8 and 9/8 as common too and create a tapestry of sound by weaving different rhythmic patterns and ornaments into a flowing composition. 

For intermediate and advanced handpan players.

DURING THE WORKSHOP:

⦁ We will develop touch, hand co-ordination and hand-independence skills
⦁ We begin with training your fingers and ears
⦁ You will learn how to build up patterns
⦁ You will discover how rhythms are structured
⦁ You will get familiar with various rhythms
