What is Uplevel U Music?
Uplevel U is a new department that Music Room is offering to advanced students, advanced musicians that are not currently students, college music major, and even current music teachers!
Sometimes there's an upper level skill that you want to learn that there just isn't time for in lessons or in a curriculum, but is still really important.
Our staff at Music Room has a really diverse skill set in music, meaning, we know a lot of weird stuff that you don't see all the time! And for those that value these skills and topics, it can be hard to find proper instruction for these things.
Take songwriting for example. There's a lot to know, but it strays from most curricula so much that how do you begin to learn it? Or even better, how can you teach it to your own students in an efficient way?
That's where Uplevel U Music comes in. Click the button below to access our growing catalog of music courses that you can take at home, in a self-paced online format.
