Private Class

Do you have lyrics or an original poem you’d like to turn into a finished song? Do you have a catchy phrase, a concept, or even just the idea for a song in your head? Then let Mr I and Janina help you turn it into a reality! This special service includes:

– A one on one ZOOM consultation with Mr I and Janina (approx 1 hr and scheduled at your convenience)
– An original backing track for your song in mp3 format with vocals sung by Mr I, Janina, or you
– An original karaoke backing track in mp3 format so you can sing your song LIVE whenever you want

*Limited time offer

Software Requirements: Weekly classes via Zoom. Zoom software required to participate. Download Zoom Here (Free)


How it Works:

Once you’ve registered and paid the associated fee Mr I will email you to schedule your one on one consultation.

During the consultation he and Janina will help you from whatever stage you are at. They can help you with completing lyrics, finding the melody, selecting the key, and much more. For those who come to their consultation with completed lyrics and a melody already in mind then you can sing your song to them and discuss what you’d like the backing instrumentals to sound like.

After your consultation they will create a karaoke backing track for you, as well as a track with vocals sung either by Mr I, Janina, or you. A copy of both tracks will be emailed to you and – POOF – now you’ve got an original song that you can add to your playlists, share with your friends, and sing whenever you want.

Congratulations! Now you’re a songwriter!


Instructor – Yurgen Ilaender (Mr. I)

About the instructor:

A German native, Mr. I started teaching at the Maillardville facility in 1982 after the person he was substituting for took another job. With a diploma from Vancouver Community College (with additional training from UBC, University of Calgary and University of Washington), he created his Musical Rainbow based on the Kodaly and Montessori concepts.

Under those streams, children set their own course while the instructor acts as an advisor on such techniques as sequence, rhythm and movement. Yurgen is a composer for decades of Theatrix original musicals. He teaches throughout the lower mainland and is a popular festival
