“I taught myself to play a few musical instruments growing up, but like most people, I never had the guts to really bring myself out there. Finding out about Artkipelago and learning from their star-studded mentors really helped me believe in myself more and see my potential. Thanks to their wonderful courses I'm more inspired to turn this hobby into a career!”

“I took Gino's class because I felt it was a necessary next step if I wanted to learn more about writing and completing a song. One question I've always had is, "Okay, I've got the melody and lyrics. What's next?" Gino's class answered the question. With a lot of information, practical advice, and fun! Most importantly, it motivated me to keep writing songs and recording demos. To just keep on experimenting and seeing what works. The format was also great in the sense that I could complete it at my pace.

Honestly, I would have paid a lot more for this class. ”

“I'm a highschool teacher, We don't usually learn these things in the classroom. I love how Artkipelago meets the criteria of a learner-centered environment. Students and teachers like myself can enroll in courses and choose to either deeply engage into course content, without repercussions in terms of grades or other forms of evaluation. We can take courses – either for credit (or no credit)! thanks Artkipelago”
