With tour dates pushed back to next year, Lindsey Stirling is now using part of her time during the pandemic to teach a free online class.

The dancing violinist, who has appeared on shows like “America’s Got Talent” and “Dancing With the Stars,” will teach a course called “Composing Your Own Life Story” on Sept. 17.

“Join musician Lindsey Stirling to discover how to write your own life story with a happily ever after — and how to write music, drama, choreography, and more,” the course description reads. “In your life story, you are both the main character and the author. Drawing on pivotal chapters from her life story, Lindsey will show students the power of taking control of the narrative and taking inspiration from their favorite characters to overcome adversity and happily anticipate the next page.”

While the 30-minute class is for all ages, the material is catered to students who are in grades 4-12, according to varsitytutors.com. You can enroll for the free class at the Varsity Tutors website. The class goes live at 3:30 p.m. MT.

In 2016, Stirling wrote a memoir called “The Only Pirate at the Party.” The book, which highlights her friends, family and faith, among other subjects, made it on the New York Times hardcover nonfiction best-seller list, according to the Deseret News.

“I was told at first that being different was a bad thing,” Stirling told the Deseret News. “Everywhere I went, it was just, ‘You’re too different.’ … And it turned out that being different was the best thing that ever happened to my career. It is why people travel to my shows. It’s why people want to hear my story and buy my book. … The recipe for my success is that I stayed true to that.”
