Simple Cheat Sheets to get things done

“Hi Peggy! Love your show girlie! You know your schtuff and I am grateful to be learning so mucho from you! Especially the legal stuff. You are extremely knowledgeable and I LOVE THAT! And I love your videos too. Your enjoyment of what you do is contagious! Keep on dancin’!”

Peggy MelmothI was once techno-phobic and hated computers!

(Says Peggy Melmoth; e-course author).

When I was an unemployed art graduate living in London, I did a quick course in computers and admin and began working as a secretary. My boyfriend was a composer, writing dance music in his basement, and I became fascinated with his recording software, synthesisers and samplers.

So I wrote to every recording studio in North London until one of them gave me a job!

I managed the office, accounts and studio bookings for six years, and made cups of tea for the rich and famous. I was also able to pick up the basics of sound recording and music technology.

Using studio 'down-time' and working with professional recording engineers I recorded my own songs, spoken word and a poetry radio programme. I then retrained as a clinical hypnotherapist and for eight years in my private practice in London I would regularly make professional hypnosis recordings for my clients, using a laptop and a simple microphone.

Since then technology has come on in leaps and bounds and now anyone can make a quality sound recording at home, using free recording software!

“Before I was halfway through the course I had created and sold some meditations: The Gratitude Bundle was my first passive income product and included an e-book with some bonus meditations. They have been really well received. I have now created three more meditations which are bonuses as part of my e-course Crystal Essences Rock.

I have really enjoyed Peggy’s informative, relaxing, encouraging, easily understandable, fun teaching style. I was a total dummy on how to do any recordings and I also get overwhelmed with technical stuff, and here I am I have created quality meditations that capture so exactly what I want to share with others due to ‘Monetise Your MP3’s’ course, I can’t thank Peggy enough!”

“Peggy Pegworth” was a founder member of The Radge Poets, has been published in many small press poetry magazines, like The Delinquent and has had a poem featured in a Lonely Planet book.

"Thank goodness I came across Peggy when I wanted to put out meditation journeys for my clients, groups, and brand intentions. I felt super intimidated by the sea of audio info out there and was resistant because it felt like yet another techy headache in the making plus a time sucker, and not something I could pay someone else to do since I truly am ‘the voice’ of my products.

I jumped on Peggy’s offer to go step by step through learning the ropes for creating the MP3’s I envisioned. Her class broke everything down in sound bites I could handle and build upon. With Peggy’s deep knowledge of Audacity and all things audio plus her sweet and wonderfully zany personality I learnt what I needed to put out 10+ meditations over the last year and soon will be launching a new 21 day meditation journey product.

Like I said, thank goodness our paths crossed as she saved me hours and hours of head scratching and helped me be even more of the spiritual creative and Soul Translator that I am. Thank you Peggy!"

No, this is a self-study course. But there is peer support in the Facebook group. However, the premium version of the course offers the option to buy a one-to-one tutorial with Peggy, in a Google Hangout, where she will talk you through Module 2.
Does this course include how to record my own instruments (eg. guitar, percussion, singing bowls) or how to record background music for my spoken word projects?
No, this is a basic introduction to voice recording. But after completing this course you could easily teach yourself more advanced recording techniques using the free Audacity manual.
Does this course include voice recording, input levels, sound distortion, mixing, sound editing, special effects, and how to convert recordings to MP3?
Yeah, baby! Plus legal rights when using other people’s music, where to get bespoke music written for your products, how to record Skype interviews, how to create a guided meditation, and how to create a podcast.
