Production and Songwriting Coach Skip Glogan is the producer, writer, lead singer and multi-instrumentalist for his band Almost July, as well as a producer, co-writer and engineer for several others. He has been working with Melissa for more than five years and has been personally trained and mentored in production by Grammy-winner Mike Mangini, learning the ropes and learning to love the process! He worked with Melissa to design a holistic program specifically for students who want to write, release professional recordings, play in bands, collaborate, expand their music theory knowledge and improve their playing ability. Lesson plans are designed for each individual, and suggestions are always available for the best software, equipment, and plug-ins for your set up and budget. Students are encouraged to learn how to play by ear, understand the theory behind what you're doing and apply it to the style of music you want to create. Musicians love Skip’s passion for music, his sense of humor and his strong belief that learning music should always be fun.
