What Is a Soundfly Mentor?
Mentors are kind of like a personal trainer for your music. It’s someone invested in your success, who will work with you on a weekly basis to achieve something you might not have thought possible. All of us have signed up for courses and classes online that we just never finished. You sign up and you watch a video and you don’t remember anything from it. Or you never get farther than that. And we wanted to do something different. We started with the idea to create the best place to learn music online, and we experimented with lots of different ways to do that. We made creative courses, we tried to cover topics no one else was covering, and so we just began chatting with students, and solving their problems. Pretty soon we realized that a lot of our students were really hungering for this kind of connection. The mentor idea came from that. You can connect with a musician from anywhere else in the world. We have some incredible mentors. They’re expert musicians, they’re working in the field, they’re trained and they’re supported, so they will do whatever it takes to make sure you meet your goal. If you have a question, your mentor is there to answer it. If you get stuck, your mentor is there to help you get through it. If you’re lost, your mentor is going to follow up and help you get back on track. You can ask for a phone call or jump on Skype, via email or you can communicate via our community Slack group. So we have two programs on Soundfly right now, our Mainstage courses, which are in-depth high-quality courses made with some of the best experts in the industry, Grammy-award-winning mix engineers, awesome songwriters, etc. Sign up for one of those and you get a mentor to work through that content with you. Or our newest program is called the Headliners Club, and it’s a chance to work with a mentor around a self-directed study of your own choosing. You’ll dive down the musical rabbit hole together. The amazing thing about our program is that we meet you where you are. It’s about unlocking what you have to offer the world, and that’s a really powerful gift.
