Private Songwriting Teacher

I've been studying and teaching songwriting for 7 years, and my students and I get excited when we develop a melody or lyric that rolls around in our head for days. The most important elements of a successful song are melody and lyric hooks that are remembered the very first time they are heard by an audience.. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to explore your song ideas, and as time goes on you'll be able to create your own original songs. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels, and I can't wait to meet you!

Carl has been there and done that; and shares all of his experience and passion with you! He is thorough and it is obvious that he knows what he is doing and is dedicated to helping you learn. A real professional that you can count on!

Carl took the time to get to know me, and began to feel so comfortable with him. It was perhaps the best experience I have ever had with a teacher for singing. I received great information and techniques.
Paul M.
Unbelievable. I realized how little I knew. I think you should just send everyone to him.

As a composer myself it is my joy to help other students find their voices through composition. I've worked with many genres and through lessons I help students discover their own writing style. My guidance is both hands on and hands off so that the song written, in the end, is truly yours. I'll guide you through the basics and the steps but in the end it'll be up to you to truly create!

Chloe is one of the best teachers I have encountered relative to her knowledge, skills, understanding of how to train children and her desire to see her students excel. She is vested in her students. Thank you for the awesome job you do with my kids. I have seen remarkable progress in their singing since you started ( I can say that because I am also a classically trainer singer)

Chloe is amazing! I have taken music theory/ voice lessons from her for over a year now, and have learned so much! She helped me pass my choir class in school and advance in an after school choir. 100% recommend her skills! She definitely knows her stuff :)

Students in this subject can study a variety of components related music theory and/or songwriting. Students can expect to learn the fundamentals of music theory and how it works, and if interested how to incorporate this knowledge into their own songs or musical interests.

Music theory and songwriting covers a broad range of music disciplines and students can expect to learn how to analyze their favorite songs, learn how to construct beats if they are interested in music programming, or even further their understanding into the worlds of classical and jazz studies.

Students will be expected to supply their own instruments, equipment and materials in instances where they would like to relate their music theory study to a specific instrument. They must also bring a notebook to write down songs they are interested in and/or artists and groups they would like to study. Students interested in classical or jazz study will need to purchase specific books and materials at the teachers ...

Great instructor.
Jonathan W.
Jacob does a really good job teaching saxophone lessons. He is very good with young kids.
Tami W.
Our experience with Take Lessons and more importantly with Jacob the instructor have been very good so far. My 9 year old son is just starting saxophone and based on the two lessons he had with Jacob, they appear to get along well. Jacob appears to be very patient with my young inexperienced saxophone player.

My son was able to play a few notes the first lesson and played Hot Cross Buns the second lesson. Apparently, playing anything that early in training is unusual. So we are very pleased and hope to see the progress continue.

"Indigo is a fabulous and diverse teacher! I've been taking lessons with her for about 9 months. Although my lessons are "officially" for songwriting, we divide our time among that, guitar technique, and music theory. I've experienced so much progress and fun in several areas, and I attribute that to Indigo's teaching and guidance. I even wrote and produced my first solo song! Don't miss the chance to work with a great musician and teacher!"

"When I first took lessons with Triana, I thought I was a pretty good song writer. Looking back I can see how much I have improved. I always felt like my songs could be better, but I didn't know how I could get them to the place I wanted. Triana has an uncanny ability to hear the best version of your song and guide you towards it. I never felt like she was writing for me, but helping me hear the places in my own song that needed work. I feel like my songs are so much stronger now and, more importantly, I can see the places in my own song that need work and can make them better on my own!"

"I have had the pleasure of playing, and practicing, with Mr. Cris over the last few years. We actually took guitar class together in high school, and even then, I could tell that he was exceptionally talented. Given his family background in music, and his desire to create wonderful compositions, it was no surprise that he chose to pursue music in his life. Recently I have needed assistance with my songwriting and I have had no hesitation in bringing my work to Cris in order to gain insight into what I may need o do in order to successfully finish my composition(s). He is well educated in music, has learned from many accomplished professionals, and is extremely hard working in his craft. And finally, Cris is very patient, insightful, and motivated, when working, and/or teaching, individuals. I would highly recommend him to anyone of all ages."

"Enormous Student base an affirmation of an Enormously Successful Teacher

Fawn is a warrior for justice. She rights all the wrongs of other teachers bad coaching. She turned my sons bad piano habits around in just 2 lessons! My daughter's bad vocal habits changed after the first lesson! I have never seen anything like it. We are grateful to have found her. I now have confidence that my children are in the best hands possible. I love the energy she puts into her recitals and the enormous student base she has is an affirmation that she is doing great things in California!
