Ryan Tedder and Andrew Huang on Monthly
I saw a promotion for a songwriting class at Monthly by Ryan Tedder of OneRepublic that looks interesting. The cost is $299. Lots of people on Reddit have signed up and have a code for $20 off; so $279. It seems like there is a lot of value even for a class that is pre-recorded and the chances of interacting with Tedder are probably slim; although he indicates he does pop in from time to time and sample progress. The community aspect could be hit or miss, but it's the same here.
With things like these, it's largely that you get what you put into it. So if that's the case, why not put into something without the fee? You can surely find the content for free on youtube, just not packaged just like this. So is the package course worth it, along with the community, the motivation, etc.?
Further exploration reveals that Andrew Huang also has a class available. I love his youtube channel.
I'm mulling it over.
