The Colonel’s Challenge, Private Lessons & UU’s Future
This week’s Live Lesson breaks the usual mode and serves as a bit of a harbinger. Kahai (AKA the Colonel) unveils his brain child in the form of a challenge. The guys will each create a song using the same general ingredients list, and they will return in 2 weeks to share what they have created. They spend the first chunk of today’s lesson, ironing out the details of the challenge and pulling submissions from the live chat. A question about Private Lessons, leads to a discussion about the added features of UU. Aldrine explains how private lessons work as well as details about 1-on-1 Coaching. The guys also talk about the benefits of private lessons, and the value of getting feedback on your playing. They wrap up the lesson by hinting at some of the exciting changes that will be coming to UU in the upcoming year.
