If you are ready to start taking your music skills SERIOUSLY then stop wasting time and money on teachers who don't fully understand the instrument or subject matter themselves. My name is Russ and I have been playing guitar professionally for 20 years and teaching music and producing records for over 15. I have a Platinum #1 Billboard charting record under my belt, worked with artists such as Mac Miller, Sean Kingston, Red Velvet, Lifehouse and more; and have composed music to 100s of your favorite TV shows! Feel free to browse my official website for a full list of credits. Want to learn to shred guitar? Produce beats? Write your own songs? Dive into theory? Record yourself? This page is the one stop shop. Feel free to reach out with any requests or questions!

I will teach you the basic concepts of how to compose songs and make those musical ideas of yours a reality. Through music theory techniques, progression theory, lyric concepts and ear training, we'll take that song that's "in your head" and make it into a reality you'll be proud of!

**Songwriting for all ages and abilities and currently have young children writing their first songs as a way to develop their writing and musicianship skills, to young adults releasing their first recordings of well crafted material. I use improvisation as a bsic tool to assist singers and pianists alike. I also work with guitarists to work on their craft and to develop as artists.

Let's write hit records together! I'm currently on my second album and have written hundreds of songs for both myself and for others! I have toured internationally and know the ins and outs of the industry. Whether you want to write for yourself or for others - knowing how to find your unique voice is key. I also teach about the business of songwriting too - just one hit and you are set for life! Lessons would include finding out your goals and what you want to achieve, talking about what works for what type of songs, but ultimately I want to help you write a song that will change your life.

My specialty is helping you write amazing melodies. I can coach lyrics too but that is not my biggest strength. I can help you learn how to put chords to your melodies and then how to convert your song into the style of your choice. I can then help guide you on making a demo of your song.
