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.

About Tony

If you want to be the best, learn from the best. Talent, skill, confidence- priceless!. Choosing the right voice coach or singing teacher can be a difficult task, as there are so many coaches and teachers out there. My approach is unique in a sense that I do not believe in a "One size fits all"

Ivana B.
I would highly recommend Tony Mitri as a voice and music instructor. My son takes lessons with Mr. Mitri and his progress has been astounding! He studies with other teachers previously without much success. My son has said he has learned more from Mr. Mitri than all of his previous instructors. He enjoys the lessons so he works harder at making progress and it shows. He helped him expand his range substantially, and increase his confidence. I would highly recommend him to anyone interested in music of any kind. Mr.Mitri is awesome professional, patient and extremely knowledgeable. You won’t be disappointed.

you could tell that he not only was a good and patient teacher but that he was interested in well being and was exceptional in his creative approach to teaching! most definitely a 5 star teacher.

Online Songwriting Teacher

My music is highly eloquent and lyrical. If you are looking for base level pop music, I will not be much use. But, if you are looking to write songs which paint vivid stories, inspire deep emotions, and musically intrigue, then I promise you I can assist. The genres I teach are Folk, Country, Singer-Songwriter, and Pop.
I've been songwriting for years now. I write daily, and sometimes more than that. I also perform a few exercises to ensure my lyrical skills are at their peak. I've done small songwriting jobs for producers (Writing Lyrics for them and recording a demo) and was also offered a single song publishing (songwriting) contract for Century Music Group.

I have been writing for years now. An arts school, with music classes specializing in songwriting and music theory, has led me to a professional level in the songwriting industry. I have been contracted to write multiple songs for producers, as well as a publishing (songwriting) contract with Centu

I love her. She is so sweet, she is amazing I would tell all my friends interested in piano, voice, music theory, songwriting or anything having to do with music, to take lessons with her. I can’t believe how much I have improved on my songwriting, voice and playing. I wish I had found her sooner. She's a miracle worker.
