Songwriting is a pleasure and easy to learn once the basics are explored. Music Theory concepts are explored so songwriting comes naturally. A focus on the storytelling aspects of songwriting (along with emotional content) is covered. Let's get started - I love helping with your songwriting goals. Which - by the way - I make it a habit to encourage the songwriting aspirations of young singers and piano players. I respect and foster their efforts. I look forward to knowing that one day some of my students will look back over their childhood and say, "Oh yes - me? I started writing songs when I was eight." And, of course, for older students I have a lot of resources for assisting.

All my three kids have enjoyed piano lessons with Marty. The oldest for more than two years! We are moving out of the country, so unfortunately we have to leave her; I wish we could take her with us! She is such a dedicated teacher. My kids have learned so much from her, not only playing the piano but also music theory. She is also flexible in scheduling, so we could always find a time that worked well for our busy family schedule. We will miss her!

Online Songwriting Teacher

How do you teach someone how to write a great song? The short answer: you can't! I know, this coming from someone charging money for lessons on how to write songs. I can teach you the elements of a great song. I can show you ways to get started, ways to develop ideas, ways to structure the parts. Great songs have something else; something greater than the sum of its parts. Great songs have personality. Great songs come from the heart. Great songs are made by PEOPLE. That is you! You are ultimately the one putting together these elements. You are not inventing a new language or a 13th note, you are mixing the ingredients to make the dish. I'm just the grocery store. The really friendly, super fresh, incredibly extensive grocery store.

I began writing music seriously at around the age of 14. At this stage, it was all trial and error. I had no idea how chords worked so I just went for it, using my ears to guide me. It was "I like that, what's next?" When I began my Music Major at ...

10 Proven Steps For Writing Lyrics That Stick

The late Amy Winehouse tribute album Lioness: Hidden Treasures has been making waves on the UK music charts, securing the #1 spot just days after its release.  Although the posthumous album has had its share of drama and questionable reviews, the collection - with its mix of covers and raw, unfinished tunes polished up by the producers - seems fitting in depicting Amy as the troubled, tattered star that she was. As she sings at the start of "Best Friends, Right?": "I can't wait to get away f …
