About Trevor

Every musician was first and foremost a fan of music. My love of music began when my mother took me to a performance of Beethoven's fifth symphony when, coincidentally, I was five. From that point, I started fervently listening to my mother's records (those are the huge, black monstrosities t

Private Songwriting Teacher

I attended the LACM for 1 year to achieve a Certificate Degree in Songwriting studying under great songwriters such as Phillip Swann, Jae Deal, Erin Workman, and Kasia Livingston to name a few. I have written over 150 full songs myself. I practice the art of songwriting on a daily basis and (not to get too philosophical) frankly see it represented in everything from advertisements/marketing, to nature itself.

This is a guitar centric area of study.

Student will learn the fundamentals of what makes a song work, using existing songs as examples of good - and bad- composition.

Some further education in chord knowledge will be introduced as well to enhance and expand available melodic and harmonic potentials necessary to remove limitations in what can be written.

Learning to identify and play what is in your head, the ideas swimming around; you will learn how to hear what is actually going on and figure it out so you can make it a reality.

About Geoff

I am a professional musician with a career spanning 40+ years (touring and studio work), and 30+ years teaching music, including college level classes. What do you want to learn? How far you go is up to you! *** Lesson Details *** BEGINNING students start with the fundamentals, what you must

How do you learn to write songs? What are the nuts and bolts of songwriting? Isn't it all just passion and self expression? No. There are tricks to learn, mistakes to avoid, and processes to develop that make songwriting more easy and fun.
I've been a teacher and record producer for over 15 years, not to mention a singer/songwriter and sideman. Over the years, I've studied songwriting to learn what makes a great song work and now I'd like to share that with you. Focusing more on the songs than the beats or the singing, I'll help you develop airtight songs that stand up to scrutiny and can be played anywhere, anytime in any format.

About Zak

I've been a touring musician, solo performer and teacher for almost 20 years. I've taught guitar, piano, bass and drums, but currently I am focusing on songwriting. I've released several records and have had many songs licensed to film and TV. My approach to songwriting revolves around improving

"My voice has significantly improved after lessons with Hannah. My tone and pitch have also improved dramatically. If you are interested in writing songs, Hannah is also a great teacher for that. I have written many songs since taking lessons from her. You don't even have to leave your home because Hannah can teach skype lessons. Many people don't like Skype lessons because they seem impersonal. I recommend trying a free lesson. You will see that Hannah makes it seem like she's there in person. I live in the country so this has been very convenient. I love her teaching style. She has empowered me to create many beautiful songs. She is very well qualified and knows what she's talking about."

"Technology today is incredible. I'm in Norway, Fawn is in Los Angeles. Where else could I find a quality teacher with a couple of hit songs help me at my craft? If it weren't for the internet I would have never found such a talented songwriter to help me tighten my songs. I love, love, LOVE the time I spend with Fawn hashing out my songs to record with my band in the studio. She is so gifted, easy going, precise and fun. She really respects keeping the integrity and emotions of my songs and is good at keeping people open to changes that are necessary to make a mediocre song great."
