The Republic of Song is a network of musicians, students, and teachers and is designed to encourage collaboration and sharing through regular local Music Exchanges.
Where are we located?
Lessons, coaching, Music Exchanges, and other events currently are limited to the Greenville, SC (USA) area. Events will expand soon, so watch for them in your local area. Of course you can connect with music makers in the Republic, take lessons, and share your wherever you are in the world. The Republic is an attitude as well as an event. Lessons are available through Skype, FaceTime, and other formats.
What makes Republic of Song different from traditional music studios?
The Republic of Song is a community first and foremost. Rather than a teachers and students, we are all creative musicians, sharing our love of music. We emphasize learning technique through inspiration and passion. Teachers in the Republic have the opportunity to share ideas and techniques at Music Exchanges. We foster social interaction through music rather than the hierarchy of competition.
Am I a good fit for Republic of Song?
If you enjoy sharing, you’re a good fit. If you see the value of inspiration in the development of music, you’re a good fit. If you’re eager to explore your expressive side, are open to learning, and want to connect with other music makers along the way, you’re a good fit!
What instruments do you teach?
We cover all instruments from voice to piano to guitar and everything else in between. If we don’t have a teacher in your area that teaches the instrument of your choice, we’ll work with you to find one or to connect you to a well qualified RoS teacher through Skype, FaceTime, or ooVoo.
Will I be able to choose my teacher?
We want all our students to be comfortable. We understand that while all our teachers are highly qualified, not every teacher / student pairing is ideal. If you are unhappy with your teacher, send us a note. We’ll work to find you a better fit. Transparency and communication is important to keep our community passionate about learning and sharing music.
