Learn with Ross, your Descript teacher

I'm Ross. I'm here to help you get the most out of Descript.

Descript is an amazing tool. It allows anyone with a microphone, a computer, and an internet connection to create professional-quality podcasts and videos. It's simple to use and there is nothing faster on the market.

The problem is, it's hard to get over the learning curve. Most beginners open it up and have no idea what to do next. What should you click? Will you ruin your video if you make a mistake? What makes for a good video anyway?

To make matters worse, there is a lack of Descript learning materials available on the internet. The Youtube tutorials move too fast. The documentation is out-of-date. Support is impossible to reach. I could go on.

But you already knew that.

You probably got excited to start creating content when you heard about Descript but quickly lost steam when you hit the above hurdles.

That's where I come in.

I have designed the Descript Mastery course and tutoring services to get you over the learning curve as quickly and painlessly as possible so you can start sharing your voice with the world.

No matter your experience with computers, with editing software, or with creating content for the internet, I am here to help you succeed!

Course FAQs

How long does it take to go through the course?
The course consists of over 100 videos lessons with a total length of around 7 hours. 

Some students like to take it all in in a few sittings while others just do one or two lessons per day over the course of several months.

So it depends on your learning style, your current experience level, and how much time you can devote to it.
What is the format of the course?

The course is mostly video but there are also text instructions with each lesson. Most of the lessons are screen recordings of the feature being taught.

Many of the lessons also contain links to external sources like Descript's documentation or supporting resources where applicable.

How did you make the course?

100% with Descript, of course! I practice what I preach here.

Every lesson:
- was filmed using Descript's screen recorder
- was edited using Descript
- is hosted by Descript (with the exception of a few that are hosted on Youtube).

How often is the course updated?

That's a very important question because Descript gets updates more frequently than any software I've ever used before!

Because of that, small updates are made on a weekly basis and major updates are made as-needed.

Additionally, I release a new video lesson for every major feature release to show you what's changed.

TLDR, the course is always evolving and updating!

How can I get the most out of the course?

Learn by watching and doing. Then, repetition, repetition, repetition.

I recommend having a project of your own open on one screen and the course open on another. Then watch a lesson, pause it as needed to practice the skill on your own project, and repeat while going through the entire course.

If there is a part you already know, skip it.

If there is something you need to review again, go back to it.

And if something isn't making sense or you have questions, just ask! I answer every inquiry.

How long do I have to complete and access the course?

Depending on which option you purchase, you either get lifetime access or one-year access to the course and it's updates. It is completely self-paced so you can go as quickly or slowly as you'd like.

What language is the course available in?

As of now, it is only available in English.

Does this course cover an introduction to Descript?

Yes! The course is geared toward a beginner to intermediate level Descript user.

What accessibility features does the course offer?

All course lessons include the lesson transcript, optional close captions, the ability to resize the video, and the ability to change the playback speed from 0.5x to 2x.

Do you offer pricing parity on the tuition?

No, but I do have scholarships available. If the tuition is the only thing stopping you from enrolling, send me an email ross@descriptmastery.com.

In your email tell me:
- A bit about yourself
- Where you're from
- What your goals are with Descript

Is it true that you have a money-back guarantee?

Yes, I stand behind this course and I will give you 100% of your money back if you're not satisfied for any reason within 30-days of purchase.
