John is an all-around musician based in Nashville, and his Sibelius chops are legendary. In addition to his extensive gigging and composing, he finds time to author the blog Notes on Notes, which has some terrific tips on notation, arranging, and music preparation.

The session will run about two hours. Registration is required, and space is limited. The workshop is sponsored by Sweetwater and Avid.

Don’t live near Fort Wayne? It’s less than a 3 hour drive from Chicago, Detroit, or Indianapolis. Why not grab some early morning coffee and make a road trip out of it?

If you attend, let us know how it goes!

    This sound amazing! Too bad it’s too far from New York.

  2. Bernie Cossentino

    Too far from Montreal :(

    Will there be a live stream? If not, perhaps the event can be recorded and posted sometime?
