About This Class

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!

Praise for other classes by J. Anthony Allen

  • "Dr Allen does it again with his music theory for electronic musicians series. This course really opened up everything I learned from the 1st section and now I understand more about the composition side of things for music. I highly highly recommend this course to anyone!!! Really opened my eyes to many things I wasn't aware of."
  • "The Best Teacher ever, who make you understand the in & out Music Theory by all mean without giving what you don't want to know."
  • "I have never had any formal training in music at all. Trying to learn all the notes and how everything translated was a serious challenge. After going thru this class, Dr. J has totally brought down the barriers. The content was very useful and was easy to grasp for me."
