What to bring to Generating Music Ideas class

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:

  1. Portable recorder for capturing ideas. A cellphone with a voice recorder app (and on airplane mode) will do.
  2. Notebook and pencil and/or pen.
  3. Song School classbook with handouts for this class.
  4. Guitar or other instrument capable of playing chords.
  5. 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.
