Indie 101 – Mini

Indie 101 is an extensive and elaborate workshop, ranging over multiple sessions that include art philosophy, songwriting fundamentals and some advanced perspectives; and extends over months for some people.

But a lot of you are not in a position to dedicate that much time and effort, and I have been thinking about it…

Over the past few weeks, I have thought upon ideas to consolidate the massive indie 101 library into something that is brief, to the point and more accessible. But at the same time, I should succeed in sharing the ideas and concepts. Therefore, I am presenting a short, concise version of the indie 101 workshop
