Online Songwriting Teacher

I am a songwriter and composer by partial trade and I could help students write songs and original compositions that will blow their audience away. I have experience writing for videos and video games. I have also published a short book on songwriting in 30 minutes or less out on Amazon. One could expect a complete break down of melody and chords and how the words fit, or if an instrumental, how to choose what instruments to write for, what their ranges are, etc.

With my two Bachelor's degrees in Music Composition and Technology, I began tutoring students in piano, voice, and composition as it was part of my training. I also have experience writing and editing essays, books, and more for several independent clients. I have experience writing my own books as

Improvisation is the first step to write your song. As a singer, song writing almost occupied most of my time, I love write down the melody which flow out of my mind. And I also really enjoy the moment when I improvise my music on the piano. I hope I can share my precious experience with you and let you start your improvisation trip much easier! If you like song writing, I believe I will be the best tutor to help you to achieve your dream.

At first I was very apprehensive with the online format as never tried that before, but needn't as XiaoMing was an excellent teacher. Helped me to translate passages in simple Chinese for me to make in my presentation. Corrected me on my tones which I needed. A clever guy who is flexible to do Business Chinese or Conversational Chinese. Recommended.

"I've worked with Sirena as a collaborator for a while now. Although she wasn't my teacher, she does have the capacity and the skills of a great teacher; she is passionate about her craft and is willing to help others out as a songwriter. The advice she gives is constructive and helpful and she is understanding, patient, and is great at listening attentively to the people she works with - all qualities of not only a great teacher, but a great person to work with."

I love her. She is so sweet, she is amazing. I can’t believe how much I have improved on my songwriting, voice and playing and I wish I had found her sooner. I would tell all my friends and any one interested in piano, voice, music theory, songwriting or anything having to do with music, to take lessons with her. She is a miracle worker. Incredible and gracious, can’t say enough good things about Fawn!"

Fawn’s way of teaching is quite original, passionate and always to the point. She can make the most insecure person get out of their own way and become more secure. Working with her, I get a glimpse of genius in action. She really is a musical genius and I have been learning an incredible amount from her. My songs keep getting better under her training and guidance and I finally got a placement in a sitcom from her re-write. I look forward to watching my own abilities continue to grow and become stronger."

"I was looking for a teacher who could help me hone in on my songwriting skills, and was so excited when I found Brittany! Not only was she able to help me improve my songwriting, but she helped with my singing in my lessons too! She is definitely the perfect teacher if you are looking to work on both. She also taught me how to use the Nashville Numbers System to chart my songs and be able to communicate well with my band. I take lessons in Brittany's home, which is in a great location and is really nice. I feel very safe there (her complex is gated) and always love going to see her!"
