The Downfall of Online Music Education

Don't blame yourself if you're feeling frustrated.

Despite the abundance of self-help materials, many musicians struggle to find clear answers to their specific problems. It's frustrating to spend hours scouring the internet for help, only to end up more confused than when you started. That's why having a dedicated music coach who listens to your concerns and offers personalized guidance is so valuable.

Learning without accountability

Musicians are struggling to stay accountable in their music journey. Online resources may provide information, but there's no one there to hold them accountable or push them to improve. It's all too easy to let excuses pile up and not take action. Without guidance and support, it's easy to get discouraged and give up on your dreams.

Self-doubt and lack of accountability can leave you feeling stuck and unfulfilled, wondering if you'll ever make progress. It's time to break free from the cycle and start taking your music career seriously.

"After living vicariously through friends who are musicians for years, I got the chance to experience playing music with a group of like-minded individuals and in front of people who appreciate it. Participating in this program was one of the most humbling and fun things that I have ever done. It gives a person who always wanted to learn to play in a band the opportunity to see that there are other people that feel the same way. I seized the opportunity to improve and learn, and to see what it feels like to set up gear on a stage and play for others. The coaches in this program not only take the time to help you understand how everything fits together in a song, but are very patient while you to figure it out. Whether we had played in groups before or knew three chords and wanted to learn more, this program helped all of us become better musicians, develop friendships and have a great time playing music. ."

"As a parent and a musician myself, I have the utmost praise and respect for what James and the Band Aid School of Music program offers. Band Aid provided so much more than “lessons.” It was a launchpad. The mentorship, collaborative spirit, cool curriculum and James’ all-in supportive spirit helped unleash the talent within my son. He has enjoyed playing ever since. This includes many professional performances at SXSW, ACL Fest, and gigs/venues across the country. What I love as a parent is that the joy he experienced first at Band Aid, which he still enjoys today.”

"I had been stuck on a few of my recent tracks, unsure of what to do next and how to move forward, and to be honest I had been spinning my wheels that way for almost a year. They listened through my music and let me voice my concerns, and gave me professional advice on what I could do next. In a world full of self help material, having someone actually listen to my work and speak to my concerns directly made all the difference. For the first time in a while I think I know what I can do next to move forward. Thanks guys!

Hi, I'm James Mays

I'm the founder and owner of Band Aid School of Music. I've scored music for Nike, I vote on the Grammys, and what people think is the coolest is that I'm the inspiration for the movie school of rock.

Richard Linklater, filmmaker and director, saw what I was doing with teen bands in the early 2000s and was inspired to write the famous movie with Jack Black.
