I enjoy the story telling. I love telling stories without words and letting the listener pick their own words from the music I create. Also, I enjoy tweaking the sounds. Engineering is up there on my list of completing song. I believe every producer should know a little something about production.
Hi Cori, I wrote this recommendation of your work that you can include on your profile. Thanks, Kelesha http://www.linkedin.com/recs/received "I have worked with Cori Jacobs. He is very professional. He works to industry standards and that pushes me to be better at my craft as an audio producer as well! One of the things I appreciate is he loves for his clients to be satisfied with the finished product. His fees are reasonable for the quality of work he puts out! As a keyboardist, he is simply one of the best I have ever worked with!"
When working with a new student I first like to gather information about their instincts. I like to know how much they know naturally and nurture their weaknesses.
I attended community college and took the music theory classes very serious. Then 30+ years as a musician songwriter and a Grammy nomintation.
My standard price is $60 per hour
I started on Udemy.com and after 3000 students I felt like this is good when times get slow.
I've worked with complete beginners on how music works and how to get a whole song from a small idea. Also, Begging beat makers, piano players, singers and beginning songwriters have learned from what I know. I've also worked with pros on writing a song with a time limit on it. Working with all types of students helps me keep my chops up.
I'm very fond of my submission to Tiny Desk by NPR. I got the whole band together and we performed a song I had written for TINY DESK. Oh it was so much fun.
A teacher knows their instrument. Weather it's their voice or piano, flute, guitar .....etc. They know the theory behind how popular music works. If a teach is self tought but doesn't know theory then your communication with other musicians and songwriters will be difficult.
One should as themself if this is really what they want. Music is a lifetime of learning. You never stop learning. It's a rabbit hole that is very fullfilling. Also, ask your self if your going to let money stop you from learning. Your always going to go hear artist, workshops, pay producers, engineers....etc. If you are a person who wants things cheap but really good then this isn't the industry for you. Unless you know someone you get what you pay for.
