WHAT IS CREATIVE COACHING?
Creative coaching is teaching people how to harness their creativity and use it to make music, spoken poetry, or written poetry. I coach in group and independent workshops focused on getting you to think creatively through techniques proven to work. Call my cell to talk more about it: 909 | 996 | 3588
WHY DO I NEED CREATIVE COACHING?
I started writing when I was 15 years old. I was drawn to Hip Hop and the pictures and word play that came along with the lyrics. As I started writing, I imitated my favorite writers and performers. When I found spoken word, it was love at first scribble. I could write and perform without the music stealing the show. I was hooked! Soon I learned not all art is good art, though subjective.
I needed people in my life who were already immersed in the culture; people who would lend me a loving honest ear, and could help me grow in the art.
Now, I want to be that person for those who don’t already have someone. Clearly, my focus is poetry and spoken word, but if you’re a creative writer, songwriter, journalist, or just curious about what this is all about, I would love to consult with you. We can work out a schedule and budget that is most comfortable for you and get to creating. I am looking forward to living life and producing art with you.
WHO BENEFITS FROM CREATIVE COACHING?
I believe promoting creativity should begin at a very early age so I particularly like working with school districts to develop and implement student workshops or appear as a guest speaker. I also like working one-on-one for a more personalized coaching session. If you need help to “wake up” your creative side or you have a lot to say but don’t know how to start, let me help. Call me at 909-996-3588 for a free consultation.
ONE EXAMPLE OF MY WORKSHOP TOPICS:
HOW TO GET COMFORTABLE UNDER THE SPOTLIGHT?
I know getting in front of a group and speaking for the first time can be a little scary, especially when you are sharing something very personal like a song or poem you wrote. I help you get over that fear and help you find the courage you need to stand up and share.
