Emphasis on basic music theory knowledge and heavy emphasis on transcribing and learning songs.

The absolute best way to become a competent songwriter is by listening to and learning other artist's music. By listening, you discover what elements you want in your own music and by learning (with a basic understanding of music theory), you discover how to put those elements into your own music.

Some topics I like to go over in a given songwriting lesson are as follows:

-Chord progressions and use of "color" chords
-Note choice and how to decide what note to sing/play
-Dynamics (basically intensity of the sections)
-Instrumentation (what instruments are playing what)
-Melodic phrasing (how you string notes together to make your musical "sentence")

About Christian

My name is Christian L. and I am a 29 year old guitar/music instructor in the Orlando area. My interest in guitar began when I was 12 years old and blossomed into a full time obsession about 3 years later when I started playing small gigs as a solo guitarist playing simple jazz and classical pieces

Robert
Christian is great. Excellent communication and knowledge of the guitar. Most importantly, his enthusiasm for the guitar is infectious. I'm very much looking forward to my next lesson. Highly recommended.
Dylan T.
A teacher of this caliber comes around once in a blue moon. His knowledge of the guitar and music is vast and he knows how to pass that on simply and effectively. He can take you where you want to go musically if you have the dedication. My creative potential has expanded beyond what I thought was possible. I am beginning to have a real experience of myself as a musician and the unfolding of my own music through the insight of his teachings. I definitely recommend learning from him!
Joseph
Christian was super helpful and helped me get a better idea of how i want to learn. Thanks so much!

I've been teaching songwriting sessions for Girls Rock Camp, the Girl Scouts and a few Youth Programs in the area. Song writing sessions is a workshop that helps my students place their words into a rhythm. This class is great for group lessons.

I started my musical path in a Ballet Studio. I fell in love with the crackle of the vinyl record playing as I learned to listen and dance with the rhythm. I started playing the guitar when I was in elementary and took classical lessons until I was a teenager.I really enjoy the art of practice

The Anatomy of a Hit Pop Song [Infographic]

When you're learning how to write a song, looking at how other songs are structured can be a great place to start. Like looking at a map before you go on a roadtrip, checking out the basic elements of songs you love gives you a sense of how they were written and what you need to do to write a song of your own. If analyzing all your favorite songs sounds like a daunting task (it is), you're in luck. The Billboard Experiment wanted to know if there was a formula that could determine which songs …
