“We have been working with Justin for 3 months now. He was hired as a songwriting coach, but has also been doing some informal band coaching for the band. He gives the band members the tools they need to accomplish their goals, breaking it down into individual tasks to make it easier and more manageable. He gives them ideas when they’re stuck, and new ways of looking at things, whether it’s a song they’ve been playing for a while, or a new riff, lyric, or melody, giving them motivation to move forward and guiding them toward their goal, and basically keeps them on track. He gets to know each member’s learning style and adjusts accordingly.”
