How do you write a great song?
Start with a song you love.
Learn it, take it apart and study it from top to bottom.
Use some of what you learn and write a soundalike, or combine it with elements of other songs you know and try making something new.
Record, perform, share and reflect.
Repeat.
One song at a time, you figure out how the process works, and you'll shock yourself with what you write and sing.
That process gets tough, but I've been through it many dozens of times (and counting) and I'm here to share what I know and help you discover your process.
Over the last five years, I've helped students go from zero experience to finishing their first song in less than a month.
I've also helped more experienced students break plateaus in their songwriting and release singles or EPs that stand head and shoulders above their previous work.

I'd love to help you write your first song, or your best one yet- shoot me a message and we can get started!

About Ethan

I have studied saxophone, jazz piano/theory, and songwriting with Ethan for over 2 years, and he is the best music instructor I've ever had. He cares so much about his students and helps us thrive. Not only is Ethan my teacher, he is a friend and a mentor.

I first met Ethan through my school's jazz combo program, and my interest in music immediately grew in the presence of his friendly persona. Ethan organized life changing jam sessions and master classes that I will remember forever. His teaching approach is project based which gives his students something to walk away with. With his guidance, I have become a stronger musician and a wiser person. Thanks Ethan!
