Online Songwriting Teacher

Songwriting was a discipline I learned through years of experimentation on my own path. I have written hundreds of songs and played them in every venue from street corners to major festivals. Having studied songs from all through history and across cultures, I have gathered a very deep base of knowledge about how to reach people and how to unify your own creativity into a creation that could reach millions of people. I write a YouTube show and blog about songwriting, so this is an area I feel I am on the cutting edge with.

In lessons you can expect...

-Musical study: I teach many formulas for finding new ideas and expressing them in a song
-Career coaching/collaboration: songwriting is a collaborative art form between writers, performers and marketers. A team is needed to give a song the best chance it can have at reaching new audiences.
-Performance training: connecting the ideas in your head to the audience requires dedication and a balance between writing and practice. I am

Very comfortable, laid back and unintimidating interaction. If you are thinking about playing sitar I strongly recommend you make arrangements to have at least the first lesson in person if possible. He is a very experienced professional and willing to adapt to your individual needs.

Having written over 200 original songs, I love to share my process, as well as the songwriting processes of other songwriters, which I've learned through various channels, including everything from University studies to Rolling Stone articles. Also, Theory and Composition were my primary areas of study in college, and I currently have a Songwriting Vlog with over 1,000 subscribers.

George D.
WOW! Seriously, he's that good.

Before I started my lessons with Christiaan I would blow my voice out during extended singing sessions and knew I needed to find a vocal coach with the expertise to help me to prevent permanent damage. He quickly identified my strengths and weaknesses and gave me many tools and techniques I never even thought I'd be capable of.

Christiaan has an amazing teaching style and always brings positive energy to each lesson. He knows how to offer constructive criticism in a gentle way that makes you excited to want to do better.

I'm much more motivated and confident as a singer-songwriter as a result of these lessons and I can't thank him enough for bringing that element to my life.
Jerry H.
I took classes with Christiaan for about a year and a half. He is a really experienced singer, and his lessons were amazing!
We worked together for a grad school audition for vocal performance. I would not have got the offer without Christiaan. He was super helpful, patient, and really helped me become a better singer/performer! Definitely recommend his lessons!
Sarathi ..
I just had my first lesson with Christiaan. He was amazing. Gentle, very positive, and really good at observing and figuring out my strengths and weaknesses. He's also inspired me to learn with his love of music and thoughtful approach.

What is refreshing about working with him is he is open to so many forms of music. As he states it, " music is music". it provides a fresh approach. I am very pleased with this expanded viewpoint."

"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.”"

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