As a musician, I learned how to create websites out of pure necessity. I am not a professional programmer – I learned through trial and error and studying on my own what works and what doesn’t work. I’ve now written hundreds of websites for artists, musicians, bands, galleries, and other organizations. In 2009 I created this class, “Web Design for Artists” as a class I teacher in-person around my area. The class has been very successful, and I’m really excited to bring it to an online platform. My goal with this class is simple: I want all musicians to have a website, be able to manage their website, and to never, ever, have to pay someone to do it for them. This is a hands-on class: I am going to make a website for myself during this class, and walk you through every step. Nearly every video is a “walk through” on how to do something. And because I’m not a technical web designer, we won’t get bogged down with any abstract terminology – only what we need. Lets dive in!
