We'll briefly discuss ,
1. Music copy-write ins and outs.
2. Songwriting terminology.
3. We'll touch on tactics for developing your song ideas and examine tools available to you to enhance your message. If you play an instrument or sing...great but not necessary.

It’s not every day you get to spend quality time with a platinum record producer and share your music with him and get to explore new stuff. I learned a lot and will never forget this!

Cortez is friendly and available and we were able to visit a pro studio which was quite impressive for my 14 years old. 30 min talk on the way to the studio and talk at the studio, all good, but a real activity would add to this experience. like 30 minutes of course on mixing , cutting, sampling, or vocal recording. still a great experience

Coming from a songwriting background, Cortez's perspective was very inspirational and refreshing. It's always good to listen to different voices and learn different approaches when it comes to creating things. Not to mention the vibe was very laid back and friendly too!

Cortez is a super talented producer! It was great to see his perspective on the song writing process, and how he guided my sister, who has no experience at all, through her first original song.. Cant wait to learn more!

This experience was great! Cortez is a great teacher and I really learned a lot during the writing session. He also leaves you with tips and resources that you can use to continue working on song writing!
