Highly recommended, very happy we found Jonathan! My daughter took to him right away, and learned a lot from him right from the start. The material he gave her to work on will be challenging for her, but not overwhelming, and she's excited to learn and progress.

Private Songwriting Teacher

Song writing can be tough... or it can be easy. Regardless of the type of piece you want to create, I can help you from start to finish. With a strong background in music performance, and a degree in English Literature, I use my experience to help you discover the perfect chord progressions, the best way to say what's in your heart, and exactly how to blend it together into a song that expresses thoughts that are uniquely you.

CHRIS was awesome!!! My first lesson was with a guitar that I’d had for years, he fixed the guitar so that I would have something to practice on, whilst he fixed the guitar he didn’t forget why he was there and went over notes and chords etc, After fixing my guitar we had time to go over the gchord and I pretty much had it as he was walking out the door. I’m very pleased!!!

Chris is a wonderful instructor. I took music recording lessons from him and it was very informative and relaxed.

Online Songwriting Teacher

Songwriting is often made out to be difficult, it's not! We will write several songs in your first lesson. The trick to it is finding inspiration and bridging that inspiration with your knowledge of music. Chord progression, melody, literature, the spoken word and studying how other songs are written are some of the things we'd work on. Whether you already play an instrument and want to learn to write songs or would like to integrate songwriting with your current instrumental studies, it is worthwhile regardless and can actually help you better understand your instrument as well as music as a whole.

About Calvin

As a teacher, I have worked with of many ages and backgrounds. One of my students, Skylar Stecker, has gone on to become a successful major label recording artist recently becoming the youngest artist to receive a number 1 on the dance billboard charts. I recently had the opportunity to tour with

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.

"In the course of a few lessons with Gfire, I (with coaching) wrote a song that I felt pretty good about. I've written a few songs before and had learned the basics, but I enjoyed learning her method (which, in a phrase, would have to be "keep going") and I plan to use it to see if it'll help with my productivity. Gfire was always very upbeat and positive without being phony, encouraging without being demanding, so the lessons were always enjoyable. I would recommend her."
