SNED Sessions Coaching + Co-Working
An informal group class where people get time to focus on their own work, in the presence of an experienced tutor who can directly and immediately teach you what you want to know, providing instantaneous advice and direction for both your day’s work – and mentoring on your overall pathway as a musical creator.
Moving from student to student, your tutor will be available to work with you for multiple 1:1 sessions throughout the day – and will also provide the occasional group lesson when relevant and universally useful topics come up. In order to provide ample time for all, these sessions will be capped at 8 participants.
Why co-working and group work environments are beneficial:
Co-working environments have been thoroughly researched and continuously prove time and time again to improve participants’ state of mind, general work satisfaction, feelings of productivity, confidence, ability to focus, and ability to complete tasks.
In a group environment, you are BOOKING IN YOUR TIME to come and specifically work on something important to you, and turning up with a motivating and driving PURPOSE behind you. This focused activity and feeling of purpose, felt by everybody in the room, tends to naturally and quite obviously create an environment geared towards productivity.
You will work faster, you will work smarter, you will get more done in less time, you will learn new and challenging things, and most importantly – during these sessions you will be much more likely to break through any walls of resistance or procrastination holding you back from making progress with your music.
Group work environments of course also provide great opportunities for networking, and in general tend to be a hilarious and enjoyable affair! Check out these great statistics on co-working – the numbers speak for themselves:
This favourable working environment, and this kind of direct coaching / creative input / critique and feedback on your work is incredibly effective – one of the most direct ways to further your knowledge & abilities whilst developing your tunes simultaneously.
