For those of you taking Rob Roper’s “Generating Music Ideas” class at the 2018 Song School, you’ll need to bring the following items to the class:
- Portable recorder for capturing ideas. A cellphone with a voice recorder app (and on airplane mode) will do.
- Notebook and pencil and/or pen.
- Song School classbook with handouts for this class.
- Guitar or other instrument capable of playing chords.
- Water bottle
This will be a very hands-on class. Most of the time you will be scattered about generating music ideas for songs and recording them. You need a way to record them, or else you’ll forget them, unless your memory is extraordinary.
