See What People Are Saying....

The Blair Hit Songwriter Series is without a doubt the best songwriting class I have ever attended. The environment is very laid-back and welcoming, however the pro-writers, publishers, and industry professionals that visit are a thrill to have every week! The class is very hands-on, current with today's market, and real world. The information and insight shared is truly priceless. Nothing is more magical than hearing hit writers from across the country share their success stories or having the hottest publishers listen to your music. The growth you'll experience in your writing while taking this class is phenomenal. No matter the genre, age, level, or location, I believe this class is a must for anyone in the field of songwriting or artist development! Johnnie Mikel Boswell

The Blair Hit Songwriter Series, by Deanna Walker is a great class for any and all songwriters. Deanna is a great professor, and asks great questions that bring out depth from those she interviews. You'll receive guidance that will be relevant and helpful throughout the rest of your career, and life too. I recommend it for any songwriter or artist within driving distance in Nashville; regardless of where you are in your career, it is never too early or too late to participate in it. Amit Chadha

The reason I STRONGLY RECOMMEND THIS COURSE IN THE MIDST OF MANY AND THE REASON I invest my time and money in songwriter craft study in Nashville is to gain real expertise and insight so that over time my writing would improve. Hopefully the classes would provide an opportunity for some one on one with resulting actually useful feedback from seasoned industry pros. Dee Walker's Blair Hit Songwriter Series advantages are her inviting tone in a friendly comfortable learning atmosphere, an industry savvy regimen of her rigorous time-tested songwriter exercises for in-class and / or homework. And very importantly you can count on Deanna to bring her classes the GOOD STUFF when it comes to top pros. For example, one night legendary song man Chris Oglesby after one listening to my song pointed out a fresh approach, suggested I redo a phrase I had not or nobody else had noticed. Reworking my verse and line then over time, the phrase improved, gave the whole song a renewed commercial and personal appeal. Another example was Don Henry who shared a new song for us one night ALL KINDS OF KINDS which soon showed up on radio.

New zivaMIND Master Class on Meditation

New zivaMIND Master Class on Meditation

All of that rushing and multitasking isn’t actually getting you anywhere. In fact, it might actually be keeping you stuck. You may be working double-time, but getting half the results.  It doesn’t have to be that way.

My friend and rockstar meditation teacher, Emily Fletcher, is offering a free, online master class starting today called “Stress Less, Accomplish More.” And I’m not kidding when I say these 40 min may just change your life.

This exclusive training is all about flipping stress on its head and finding a way out of overwhelm, so you can perform at the top of your game.

Here are my favorite things about the free master class. You get to:

  • Discover your unique reaction to stress (and how it’s keeping you stuck)
  • Learn a relaxation tool to get grounded and focused
  • Get out of the pursuit of happiness and into the happiness of pursuit
  • Enjoy a guided visualization to get out of overwhelm and get on top of your game

Watch now

This free master class will be available for the next few days, but after that it goes away for good. Not to stress you out, (ha!)… but you’ll want to dive in asap. You can start watching immediately right HERE.

Vocal Masterclass II

Vocal Masterclass II

Vocal Masterclass II

 

Although, I am no longer coaching at this event, I definitely recommend attending it!!

Vocal Masterclass is a multi-disciplinary course that strives to bring vital information to the singer about their voice. Experts will be brought in from the fields of laryngology/voice medicine, vocal rehabilitation, and vocal instruction. The only meeting of its kind, Vocal Masterclass connects the singing community with the necessary resources to ensure a healthy voice and a successful voice career.

Vocal Masterclass II will include an exciting new addition based on feedback from our pilot year. This year the program will include the introduction of Core Pathways, style-specific tracks that allow the attendee to select the material that is most relevant to them. By selecting the core pathway that is most aligned with your vocal style, you will be automatically enrolled in specialized coursework to help you develop as an artist in your genre.

Contemporary/Musical Theater

This pathway is directed by vocal coach, pianist, and singer/songwriter Gerald White. Attendees will learn information vital to their development in the contemporary and musical theater worlds. From audition preparation to surviving life on the road, the Contemporary and Musical Theater pathway enables the attendee to become a stronger and healthier performer. Special attention will be given to belting and other genre-specific style features.
View Contemporary/Musical Theater Agenda

Classical

The Classical pathway is directed by Professor of Voice, Melanie Emelio, DMA. As Chair of the Fine Arts Division at Pepperdine University, Dr. Emelio has extensive experience in the classical world. This pathway will help the classical musician to develop musically and understand their industry better. Critical areas of focus include the tenor and soprano voice, as well as working with accompanists. The classical singer will gain an invaluable understanding of how to progress in their career.
View Classical Agenda

Performer Development/Vocal Science

Elite vocal coach and founder of Vocalize U, Dave Stroud, leads the Performer Development pathway. This pathway is for the singer who seeks to grow in several key areas, including voice science, vocal style, pedagogy, and performance. This pathway targets four major concepts in artist development, enabling the artist to identify weaknesses and areas of future growth. Singers from any genre will find components in this track that are beneficial to them.
