This is the platinum package. If you're a young songwriter looking for a veteran to help hone the craft or a songwriter yourself looking for someone to assist with composition, I'm excited to be of service. My home studio is equipped with all the equipment in my profile, ie. everything. Drop in to jam, drop in to write, drop into record.

I understand it's easy to lose drive when you're constantly drilling scales and fingering. I try to frame all of my lessons in reference to what music really is: the creation of songs. Through composition, my students won't just learn scale and chord structure, but they'll organically develop these skills while writing their own songs and building their personal portfolio.

I came away from my lesson with James feeling so happy and knowing that he will be teaching and encouraging me all the way going forward. I am actually lost for words to express what an incredibly positive experience I had today. I am also looking forward to my grand daughter taking lessons from James now too. I feel I got lucky that James is the teacher that was found for me.

Learn how your favorite songs work, what patterns are being used and what the song is really doing. Learn to write your own!! What chords work together and why! What parts go where and why! The harmonies to the music, why they work and what they are really implying! Writing multiple parts to a song (Rhythms, leads, melodies and solos). We can even record and work on your own songs at my studio!

Chris is incredibly knowledgeable, and also very attentive as far as his student’s needs :) Makes it very fun and exciting for them, and most importantly, goes the extra mile to make sure they are learning as well enjoying what they are learning. My son genuinely loves going and honestly, doesn’t stop talking about how cool and awesome his guitar teacher is every time we have a lesson, ha! You won’t be disappointed - He’s great!

Cameron is an excellent teacher for me. I am 11 years old and have been playing for almost a year with him. He is patient and makes me stretch to be a better guitarist. He takes time to find songs at my level of learning and accommodates my tastes in music. I would recommend him for anyone who is interested in playing guitar.
Kim K.
I enjoyed my first lesson with Cameron. He explained things clearly so I could understand. Can't wait for my next lesson.
Pat A.
A solid teacher with a lot of experience

Cameron is great at tailoring the lessons to my musical taste without compromising the theory, basics and fundamentals.
I have been taking lessons for one year and will not go elsewhere anytime soon. His vast musical knowledge helps merge the theory with concrete examples. No question remains unanswered.

Why do some melodies stand the test of time and others don't? Why are some words better choices than others? How do people write good songs? It takes a lot of time, some guidance and mostly discipline. I will help you to stay on track and provide support based on personal industry experience.

A 30 or 60 minute lesson is a great add-on to a voice lesson and it grants the opportunity to learn how the two are connected. If done properly, the two can support one another, helping the singer and the writer share a both voices, the written and the physical voice.

About Jessica

Hi! My name is Jessica and I can't wait to help you find YOUR voice because YOUR voice is unlike anyone else's . No two people sound exactly the same; isn't that a beautiful thing? I truly believe it is, so much so that I've dedicated over two decades of my life to it. After double majoring at the

Kristin
My goal in taking lessons was to get back to singing after a long hiatus of lessons and performing... to reclaim my love of singing and break through my insecurity. Jessica's warmth, humor and expertise helped me do just that. I learned new techniques and had a full on very emotional breath through right in her living room!

She made me feel safe, confident, and helped me learn about my unique voice as well as shared her expertise in proper breathing and gaining vocal control and increasing range.

In sum, Jessica is an incredible vocal coach and I'd definitely recommend her.
Sally
Jessica is an amazing teacher! She not only understands all the technicalities behind singing but she works to your strengths and helps you cultivate both your inner and outer voice! I felt very comfortable with her and even got emotional a few times as it was such a powerful experience to be able to be vulnerable and engage in something I love so much. Jessica is the perfect mix between professional and experiential where you'll learn skills but you will also have fun doing it. I highly recommend Jessica for your musical needs. I look forward to my future sessions!! It also helps she is incredibly talented! An all around win and positive experience :)!

I was nervous to take lessons online at first, as I've never done it before, then was unsure who I should take from because I didn't want to get someone who was terrible. I got really lucky though, I highly recommend her. She's absolutely fantastic."

"Amazing teacher

I have been working with Jan for about four weeks now, and already, I'm changing the direction in which I am chasing my dreams. The fact that she is experienced in every genre of acting, songwriting, music production, and singing, makes her the best possible teacher to receive lessons from. She is the type of teacher that doesn't care about going over the time limit just to further explain something, listen to what you have to say or to give more direction. She has written her own book on songwriting called, "Once More With Feeling" where she explains everything in great detail, step by step. Anything you want to work on, she will be right behind you all the way. I had so many doubts about taking an online course in singing for many reasons, but I was SO WRONG. Instead of getting a decent teacher that you can work with face to face in your area, get the BEST teacher and work with her in the convenience of your own home. It's worth it, plus cheaper! She is to say the least, phenomenal, I am already seeing results and I only just had my fourth lesson. She has a reputation for making artists' celebrity status, with just a little drive and persistence you could have a worthwhile time learning with Jan."

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!"

He even helps me write my songs down. I am glad I am working with him and would like to recommend Carlos to any songwriter."
