Hi there and thanks for visiting! I have been playing guitar, singing, writing and producing music for the greater part of my life. My endeavor is to guide you to an understanding of one or many of these facets and give you the tools you need to become your own teacher as you continue down this path.

Below is a brief synopsis about the lessons I teach:

Guitar/Songwriting:
There will be very little music theory. I never needed much of it to write my own music, other than a few basic theories to get around successfully, so it’s not something we’ll spend a whole lot of time on. I have organized and constructed a course book to keep things lively and moving along efficiently. I call it NOTEbOOK. It’s also great refresher material to revisit in the future.

I teach basic guitar with accented professional appeal and rhythmic structure. My intention is to guide you to create your own original music using straightforward techniques. My goal, once we part ways, is for you to leave ...

About Lorin
I’ve been a writer and musician since I was a teenager, and have been teaching music lessons for over a decade. I began journaling at 15, mostly free-writing and poetry. This was my segway into guitar and songwriting. Over the years, piece by piece, I’ve gathered many angles to my myriad profession.

I’ll never forget my first singer/songwriter experience when I was 17. I watched my neighbor play guitar and sing on his porch. That moment changed my life and set me on the road I’m on today. Music and poetry can be transcendent when there is truth and love behind it.

At 18, I formed a transitory first band, The Screaming Poets. Shortly after, while attending Columbia College Chicago for creative writing, I organized another project called Satori. This group featured an accoutrement of musicians and styles over the course of its existen
ce. From indie-folk to punkish hard-rock to downtempo electronica, it was its own versatile caravan.

Post-Satori and a plethora of songs later, I fell into the world of electronic music production and engineering, getting hands-on with computer software and a keyboard controller. Furthering my advancement in the technological arts, I attended SAE Institute of Technology located in the heart of New York City. I graduated from the program with high standings.

The introduction to electronic music was a seed planted many years ago working with a friend producer and DJ. Over the years that seed developed into a unique cohesion of computer production with organic guitar songwriting. The electronica artist Loryn was born from this elemental form of designing music. Jointly, signed as Loryn with GoDIY Records, I began offering a licensing/production service for other artists, pitching my original remixes of their songs to opportunities in television.

Under Loryn, in 2011, I began releasing monthly newsletters to my fans and subscribers. In addition to artist updates, my passion for writing naturally crept in and became part of the newsletters. I have recently compiled these newsletters, as well as other works, into an anthology of poetry, prose, and flash fiction published in 2015.

Music… Writing… Teaching… Production… Whatever reason you’re here today, I’d love to learn more and possibly join you on your journey.

Lorin helped me hone my songwriting skills immensely, by not only teaching but collaborating with me when necessary. It was refreshing to find someone who put his teachings into practical learning, where I could see the outcomes become apparent. He’s a nice dude, and is experienced equally across his fields. He guided me to making intelligent choices for equipment purchases, both instruments and pro audio gear. We first met while he was living in New York, and boy has he traveled since. I think living in so many different states, and being that well journeyed has given him good cultural depth to his work. Check out some of his own collabs with singers and musicians from all over the world...that really says it all.

I wanted to learn how to play a Gypsy King song for my wife at our wedding. Lorin taught me fairly quickly, he made it fun and really easy to learn. Then I figured I would learn the basics so I can just jam out to songs or just mess around with my guitar. Now I can strum some early 90's or old school alternative songs. It seems alot easier to learn songs now. Super nice guy and very smart/laid back. Definitely worth the money

I have been using Ableton Live for over five years. I have an extremely creative approach to song production as I am both a sound designer and a musician. I am very knowledgeable with a wide range of production techniques and tricks that can get your tracks going from good to amazing in minutes. We start by getting amazing sounds, and then I will show you exactly the ways that you can put them together to make any track an instant favorite for your listeners.

Beginning instruction will include mastering the basics of the user interface, learning to record audio, programming MIDI, and experimenting with built-in plugins. Depending on the student's area of focus, we will also study mixing and mastering techniques, audio slicing, automation, the art of DJing, and using Ableton in a live band context.

About Steven
I consider myself dedicated to two passions in life: the art of musical creation, and the joy of kindling that spark in others. I've been teaching private music lessons for the past five years, and have worked with students of many different ages and proficiency levels. I am always on the lookout to work with new people who are just as excited about creating music as I am! My musical career began fifteen years ago as a classically-trained pianist, and soon after began to expand to more contemporary styles such as rock, pop, jazz, and electronic. I spent four years at the University of Miami studying under Academy Award nominee Chris Boardman, and graduated with a degree in Music Composition & Production and a double minor in Music Business and Creative American Music. I currently reside in Los Angeles, where I write and produce music for
films, TV shows, and video games. I look forward to meeting you and starting our musical journey together!

About Max
I love to teach. I started teaching privately while earning my Music Engineering degree (B.S.) from the University of Miami. I studied jazz guitar at UM and during my 10 years as a guitarist I have played many other genres from folk to metal to pop.
Most of my tutoring experience during college focused on math courses, SAT prep and music theory.
I am great with kids; I taught summer camps at a town-run skatepark for 4 summers.
Give me a call to see if we are a good fit!

Max has been on time every time. He has established a very good rapport with my 15 year old (!!!) son which results in my son doing the homework and not dreading the sessions. My son seems relieved to be understanding the Algebra II concepts that he missed during the past term. He also seems way more confident and in a much better mood as if solving this issue for school was weighing him down before. In addition Max is very pleasant, very polite so his presence is welcomed by the rest of the family. Thanks!!!

Ableton is one of the best music software out there and I love teaching it! It is a super flexible program, which means it can be daunting for the beginner. Whether your passion is hip-hop, EDM or avant-garde, Ableton is an amazing way to make music and I am passionate about helping you on your way to being a super-producer.

About Fionn
I'm a recent graduate of Berklee College of Music, and I'm extremely passionate about helping others reach their potential! Learning an instrument can be a difficult process but with the right teacher it can be an extremely rewarding one. I understand that different students have different wants and needs and I'm 100% focused on delivering the right service for you!

I've spend the last few years performing on all sorts of stages, from intimate jazz clubs in Boston to Glastonbury, the largest festival in England. I appreciate the varied ways we all experience different types of music and I want to teach you music YOU want to learn. If you want to learn theory, that's fine too but I understand that not everyone wants to.

Let me know as soon possible so we can get started!

I got bass lessons from Fionn in 2016, and it was fantastic. He's a brilliant teacher, and extremely patient. I switched from drums so he basically had to teach me music theory and how to read music too, which he did with ease. Really enjoyable lessons that I learned a lot from, I'd highly recommend Fionn as a teacher.

I just began playing guitar a year ago, but had terrible technique. I began taking lessons with Fionn and noticed a huge difference in my playing almost immediately. Fionn is an incredible teacher and so easy going, I couldn't recommend him enough! I have started playing in front of small audiences now which I never would have had the confidence to do before. He's also great value for money! All I can say is TAKE HIM!!

Whether a beginner or an advanced musician, I love working with students of any age and skill level! I tailor each lesson to specifically fit the student’s skills and interests, making sure that they are not only progressing but enjoying the process of making music. 

About Taylor
I'm a video game composer who loves working with students of any age and skill level, whether they are beginning to compose for the first time or have been composing for years. Getting people started composing and watching them discover that they have a lot to say through music, is such a joy of mine! I tailor each lesson to specifically fit the student’s skills and interests, making sure that they are not only progressing but enjoying the process of making music.

With me, students can learn:

- Composition (any style: jazz, classical, pop – you name it, we can do it!)
- Composing for film, T.V. and video games
- How to use music composition software (Logic, Digital Performer, Cubase, Studio One, Pro Tools, Ableton etc.)
- Music theory
- Songwriting
- Music production
- How to use music notation
software (write out your parts, charts, lead sheets etc. so that others can play your original compositions)
- Classical percussion techniques

Students can expect to have a lot of fun learning with me! We can write soundtracks, band pieces, solo pieces - whatever the student finds most interesting. :)

BIO:
I’m a composer who currently lives in Bellvue, Washington. I started my music career when I was 9 years old playing the Zimbabwean marimba and mbira (a traditional Shona thumb piano). Not only are the instruments beautiful, but they express our connection to the world around us. I completely fell in love with the polyrhythms and melodies of Zimbabwean music!

I continued to pursue my passion for music by studying percussion and composition at The Boston Conservatory of Music… then completed my M.M. in Scoring for Film, Television, and Video Games at The Berklee College of Music in Valencia, Spain.

Now I write music for video games and help our stories unfold.

I've been working with Taylor for several months now and have enjoyed it very much! She has been helping me with Cubase and composition. Musicians need to collaborate and share ideas and I'm grateful I've had the opportunity to do that with her. She is well organized, easy to get along with, and has an impressive background. I would highly recommend her for your next project or if you're new to DAW's.

Working with Taylor has been one of the best investments I have made for my personal development in the musical world. She has helped compose music for a play, has helped keep me calm when I feel like I am overwhelmed or overthinking my objectives and keeps me leveled. We have also worked on analyzing scores from classical to modern. I highly recommend her if not just for her knowledge/skills, but her great sense of humor as well (makes the lessons even more enjoyable). Thanks Taylor, you’re the best.

I was very pleased that Taylor offered Skype lessons, but I was a bit worried whether I could learn in this format or not. To my surprise, it was exceptionally easy and rewarding! Currently, Taylor and I are working on a piece that I am composing for my short film. Of course, as a newbie, I knew nothing about Apple’s Logic Pro X when I began, but Taylor took her time to explain just how the software worked, as well as the techniques I needed for scoring my film. I highly recommend Taylor and the very convenient Skype format! You won’t be disappointed.
