KIYOSHI’s “Expand Your Expression” Course basic info (late October – mid-December)

I’m looking to start it the week of October 19th – the week of December 14th.

I’m aiming for Mondays 4:30-6:00 pm PST (weekly), however, I’m still gathering everyone’s open schedules together and seeing which time option works best. 




Here’s the itinerary:

Kiyoshi Course Outline:

Week 1:  5 pillars of flowetic expression

Week 2:  Basics, benefits, and differences of rapping, poetry, and melodic singing

Week 3:  Performance techniques

Week 4:  Creating from FEELing, using the senses

Week 5:  Writing a catchy chorus

Week 6:  Song Composition:  Building the song

Week 7:  Courage to Shine:  How to put yourself out there

Week 8:  Unleashing your inner ROCKSTAR!

Early bird registration price (this week):  $450

Regular price:  $500

I’ll be facilitating/teaching a special group of creators ways to elevate and jump-start your writing, poetry and/or raps, songs, live performance skills, free-styling, and overall self-expression while taking all of that to the next level.  I share a lot of my secret tips in what I’ve learned in my 20+ years of experience rocking stages across the globe.  Individuals will get to collaborate, network, support, and musically hold each other accountable during this 8-week journey.  It’s going to be super fun and I’m stoked to share my wisdom and expertise, in service to others.

There will be weekly zoom calls, awesome group lessons/activities, group sharing, a private group page where we’ll be communicating & posting videos, and more.  At the end of the course, each participant will have at least 1 complete song written and performed for the group.

I have a limited number of spots available for the early bird registration price so if you’re ready to get started, you can pay through one of these options:
