Do you have ideas for songs but wonder how to structure them into complete songs? Do you hear great tunes in your head but not know how to fit them to chords? Are you puzzled by how weave a magical melody to match your lyrics? Stumped by limited rhyme possibilities or awkward phrasing?
Perhaps you could benefit by having a seasoned songwriter as a mentor to coach you in creating beautiful songs in your own unique style. That's where I can help.

I've been getting guitar lessons with Sean for sometime after some singing lessons with him. He's a great teacher, very patient, flexible, always pushing me to experiment more and adapting to my needs as a student. I've also learned so much about music theory and different approaches to song writing thanks to his input.
Cole
I Googled "guitar teacher, Roseburg, OR" and low and behold, Sean showed up and boy I'm glad he did!!! Sean and I hit it off instantly and the things I wanted to get better at (finger picking, hammer(s) on and off, picking the notes within chords, etc.) Sean was completely versed in! Long story short... I couldn't be happier with Sean as a teacher and as a person he's totally cool as well! I recommend Sean unequivocally and if you want to start to play guitar or even get better as I do, Sean is your guy, no doubt about it!!!

"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’ve been writing songs with Bob on and off since 1989, I think it was. He’s the best: inventive – lyrically and melodically; with a deep understanding of musical structure and a wealth of experience. Our songs have aired on several cable shows and songs of mine he produced and played on were used on NBC, ABC, FOX, public television, as well as on German TV, Sirius, and radio stations around the world. You’ll get what you paid for: Bob’s the real deal.

“First-rate compositions,” wrote Ken Tucker ("Entertainment Weekly" and radio’s "Fresh Air") of Williams’ songs. Both "Publishers Weekly" and "School Library Journal" highly recommend Williams’ two CDs for children. "One out of thousands!” wrote a reviewer for Europe’s "Radio Marabu" of Williams’s pop/folk-rock CD, “...true, honest music…a priceless treasure for a lifetime.”"

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 …
